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.

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.

Good stick

TMFC117 on 04/10/17

Accompanied with the usualt nutty earthy flavors you normally find with Monte cristos, you get decent smoke output and a flawless draw everytime

Good, not great

Haha on 04/08/17

Love how this baby looks. The box pressing gives it an elegant appearance and prevents it from rolling off the table. The dark wrapper belies a mild smoke. Notes of cedar, chocolate and marshmallows with a bitter finish. Some retouching needed

Great smoke

David on 04/07/17

This cigar has a great nutty flavor . The box press gives it a tighter draw which allows the cigar to burn slower and last longer. I love the rich strong flavor.

Recommend For A Cheaper, Small Cigar

El Loco Guey on 04/02/17

I saw these on sale and decided to order a box of them. Not top tier, but they are good for the price. I will say, that the first 3rd of the cigar has a very interesting butterscotch-like taste that completely took me by surprise, but by the end of the 2nd 3rd it is all gone.

Tome7399 on 03/25/17

Always good smoke. I had these a few times and they have never let me down. They are well put together and smoke great. The flavor profile is great and they are strong just how I like them.

Excellent fo the money

Montecristo 444

Jonathan on 03/07/17

This is a box pressed cigar and montecristo cigars are some of my favor sticks to smoke. It has a very dark oily wrapper from Connecticut which covers some Dominican filller leaf resulting in a tasty smoke with a sweet coffee,cedar and spice aroma while smoking.
