The Monte By Montecristo Conde is for those who prefer a robust smoke every now and then. These cigars have a perfect construction that makes for a perfect burn and an even draw. Originating in the Dominican Republic, the Monte sports a pig-tailed cap, reminiscent of old Cuban masterpieces. Each cigar is enclosed by an Ecuadorian Habano wrapper that has a distinctly spicy taste. A Dominican Olor binder is accompanied by another Vintage Nicaraguan binder, resulting in a unique fusion. The expertly aged Dominican filler tobacco adds another dimension to the complexity and strength of the ensuing smoke.
Each cigar is 5.5 inches in length and has a ring gauge of 48. Monte cigars are sold in boxes of 16. They are a new addition to the famous Montecristo brand. Enjoy these cigars with a glass bourbon, which goes perfectly well with their medium to full-bodied flavor profile.

I first had these at a release party hosted by MonteCristo for their New York Connoisseur Edition. They were giving these out as a yet-to-be realeased exclusive. We were highly impressed with how smooth and well constructed these were. I searched for three weeks trying to locate them and finally saw them hit the market and quickly snagged a box of the pig tales. Granted they were freshly packed and just released so they may need a little time in the humidor. But these are really nice smokes. The combination of Dominican and Nicaraguan corojo in the binder give this a punch that works well. It's not overpowering on the palate and leaves a nice aftertaste. And the price simply cannot be beat. I will definitely buy these again. A 93 in my book
