The Montecristo White was a cigar I picked up from a grab bag of
random things from the folks at Casa De Montecristo by Tampa
Humidor. It came along with the Partagas Black, and Alec Bradley Prensado (5X50).
I was rather surprised. For starters, I’m not a huge Monte fan as a rule, I’ve outgrown the traditional big brands. It’s like drinking Budweiser (if you like pain) and then realizing there is locally brewed IPA. But since I paid for this, figured, what the hell.
The surprise came in that the cigar was fairly flavorful. Honestly, it was creamy, with good solid wood notes and a touch of pepper. The draw was good, construction solid. I’d expect that though from General Cigar. Good flavor overall, with a medium finish, this cigar is one for those who would enjoy a mild cigar but still want plenty of flavor.
