Thought I'd give this a go with the obvious choice, a Montecristo. Albeit young. First Third Choco hit right from the get go. Creamy cadberry egg. Second Third Lashings of berry fruit and cocca powder. Third Third Graham cracker smores. Campfire smokiness (the Lagavulin probably influencing here). Fourth Third This stick never ends! Not that I want it to. Milk chocolate, fudge, Nestle Quik. Final Third Youth is kicking in. Strength is up, all cocoa powder here. Nub Third Tobacco. Smokey. Very hot. Smoking time is 2:20 min. Overall delicious way to spend a Happy Easter
To say I am looking forward to this cigar would be an understatement. My favorite Marca and a great size to boot. I know the "Monte 80th" fever is in full pitch right now, but has anybody heard anything about this cigar since it was announced? I wouldn't be surprised if this cigar never showed, or if it does, in very low quantities. Considering the yearlong+ delay for the "2015" Monte 80th and the majority of folks who tasted both stating that the current release cigars are very different in flavor than the pre release cigars. I'm not sure where the Tobacco for the 16's is going to come from. The wrapper leaves are just about the same size (165mm vs 167mm) and they clearly had issues getting enough together for the 80ths. Maybe I am just being pessimistic, if I prepare myself for the worst case I can only be happily surprised if they are released. Right? Best case scenario they release them on the island early November to coincide with my trip.
