Great cigar, not-so-great pricing

Chad on 01/15/17

This is still one of my favorite go-to cigars in my collection. A nice 35-40 minute quality smoke. Beautiful with coffee or a nice whisky. The box pressing isn't extremely evident on the all the sticks, so I took a star off for consistency. Apart from that, though, this is just a beautiful Monte. However, I wonder about JR's pricing. I bought this exact box (MX444) on Dec 8 -- barely a month ago -- for $54.95 and got a 12 cigar for $5 promo with it. I was keen to buy another box, but ... Now they're saying 12 cigars free (not the exact same 12, mind you), but the price for the box of Montes is suddenly $77, which is a steep jump from a month ago. Maybe there's a legitimate reason for a sudden 40% price hike in tandem with a "12 free cigar" promo add-on, but it's a bit suspect when they do things like that. So a big A+ for the cigar, but no such love for JR's seemingly shady pricing.

Good stuff

The smell of the cigar is amazing like nothing I've ever smelled can't wait to age them perfectly

great smoke

CraeScott on 08/01/15

Can't believe all the flavor that is packed in such a small package. Perfect size for those times you really want a cigar but don't quite have the time for a big boy. Really smooth and consistent pull and pretty even burn. Nice mild flavor throughout and held together right until the nub. Great little smoke.

Not a fan of this one. Just didn't appeal to my taste buds and the aroma was a little sour.

KCHart on 02/03/17

Monte Cristo is my favorite brand of cigar, hands down. I love box press so this was a win win for me. I love the dark oily wrapper.

Good smoke

Am on 02/01/17

Box pressed heaven. Very consistent smoke the whole way. Non stop flavor and not to mention a good draw

A great Dominican Monte

Chad on 01/28/17

One of my favorites. Good flavor that pairs well with coffee or rum. Nice dark wrapper and terrific construction. A fine 30-35 minute smoke and well worth picking up, particularly if you can get a box when it's on sale.

Strong but good!

Shipperson on 01/26/17

While not being a box press fan, I found the rest of the categories in question being well represented with this in this cigar!

Not bad

92Fox on 01/15/17

Interesting to see a box pressed Monte. Comparable to the Sevens. Burn issues because of the box press but good mouth feel

Not my favorite

Javier on 02/24/17

This cigar was a little strong for my taste. I was in a big fan of it. I'm sure other smokers out there would really enjoy it. Everyone has their own taste but this one was not my favorite.

Nice smaller stick

Cigarnoob on 01/13/17

Nice mellow cigar with good draw and construction. Small size makes it a nice quick smoke when you don't have too much time. Light airy smoke with flavors of cedar and hay.

Alright cigar

Megatron on 01/07/17

In my humble opinion this is one of the better Montecristo's. It's actually a little more medium bodied then the rest of their lines. I actually do keep a box or two for a quick smoke.

Nice little smoke. Well constructed so lasts longer than you would think. Big on taste but smooth. No bitterness. I always have some in my humidor. Can never go wrong with any Monte.
