What a great cigar band!

...very impressive to anybody who knows anything about premium cigar makers. Just whip one of these bad boys out (making sure they can see the distinctive Montecristo logo on the band) and they start ooh-ing and ahh-ing... You will surely look like a person of distinction! As for the cigar itself, the Rosa Cuba Angel is a superior product in every way -- except brand-recognition, of course -- for a fraction of the cost. The Monte 4x40's taste profile is sufficient and build quality is good; however, every one I've smoked has burned unevenly and tended to canoe. And *do not* purge them, as you will have a very difficult time keeping them lit thereafter. On the whole, a good enough cigar on its own merits; but certainly not worth c. $4 per stick, especially when the RC Angel sells for ~$27 for bundles of 20 and is an effortless, consistent smoke.
Who let the cat out?!?

I bought a 5 pack year ago, really wanted to like this cigar....perfect size half corona for a lunch time treat- and it's a Montecristo after all! First one had an iron draw- headache enticing, ditched it. Second on same, drilled the hell out of it with my poker and struggled through it. Third wasn't bad, a generic smoke, not exciting and a bit bitter. Fourth-iron draw again, ditched. I let the last one sit in my humidor for the last year and finally today decided it was do or die. Well, it lit, then was ll down hill from there. Smells of ammonia and cheap burnt tobacco, harsh on the throat and my lips began to burn. the cap began to unravel in my mouth and it started to canoe. I had to save it 3 times as it kept trying to go out. 1/2 way in it did develop some flavor but the cat piss ammonia never really went away. No more for me. The only saving grace is the pleasant smell left on my fingers....or maybe that's what I smell like. Maybe i should have let it sit for another year...or two
