MONTECRISTO No.1 perhaps not the grandest of Lonsdales coming out of Havana; however, it is totally reliable. The woody flavors progress in a very linear fashion. The construction of the stick is excellent and leads to a perfect draw and a very easy burn. This Montecristo could be appropriate for the novice smoker, yet the woody flavors and the rich tobacco might be too much for a rookie’s palate. I would say intermediate smokers would gain a lot of experience by smoking this consistent smoke. You can buy this at Stogies & More.
