Just a quick note.
Received via the UK some nice Monte Cristo #2's. I planned on letting them rest for a couple of weeks and bring them to the festival, but the oily, smooth dark wrappers and the leathery, cedar aroma grabbed me and I couldn't resist.
Paired with Weller Antique 107, I had a fine Kentucky Indian Summer Day on Sunday.
This sl larger than corona sized cigar is perfectly made and lit easily. Toasted nuts and rich chocolate on the first few draws. As the better than average ash grew, a heavier peppery and spice flavor dominated. The draw was smooth and produced moderates amounts of fragrant smoke. About halfway, this cigar took on a leather and char note, full bodied till the end. How can one cigar have so many personalites. I have a few of these left.
