Cigar Aficionados first glimpsed this cigar when it was distributed at the 14th annual cigar festival in Havana earlier this year. Described as a "maravillas No.3" or robusto extra this 55 ring gauge 6.18 inch cigar is a real treat for Montecristo fans. Having smoked a couple of cigars since their U.K. release I am very impressed with its overall refinement and would say it is the best offering from Montecristo since the 2008 Sublimes.
The traditional maduro wrappers are a pleasingly dark shade and yet smooth to touch. The construction is excellent with the resultant combustion near faultless. Generally it is hard to achieve such a balance between flavour, strength and effect in such a large cigar, But I have to say, speaking as one who is not a die hard Montecristo devotee, that I thoroughly enjoyed this cigar on each occasion. Great size and delicious flavour. The best Montecristo for quite some time ! RECOMMENDED !
