Monte is a favorite brand of the ages. They're mainly mild to medium profile is great for new smokers and seasoned vets alike This cigar has a fantastic burn a great medium flavor profile that has notes of leather and wood. I would continue to buy these.

If you like mild cigars this is a must try. Very smooth and creamy. Soft woody core with a nice pepper to balance everything out with some coffee notes toward the end. I'm generally not a fan of mild cigars but this is one I look forward to.
Old School cigar that's reliable and solid #1
Champagne InHand on 10/25/15
What bad can one say about Monteceisto or their No. 1 cigar. Montecristo has been a solid producer of cigars since the beginning. The No. 1 is perfectly smooth and consistent. Like most old school brands Montecristo doesn't disappoint but it may not wow you either. Still I'm never disappointed by smoking a No., from Montecristo or any of the established brands.

This is montes attempt at a fuller cigar. A nice smooth creamy smoke that's a solid medium body and pushes medium full at times. The flavors are mainly woody tobacco and sweet cedar. Not a bad smoke but for the price I'd get something else.
Liked it for the most part

Consistency was great. Flavor not so much for me. Just stayed the same throughout. I will say construction was good. But I am burned out on monte. But if your looking for a casual smoke then it is pretty good.
W David, Montecristo Classic Especial #1
W David on 05/18/16
It's funny this cigar came up for review because I am on my front porch smoking one right now. This cigar is my all time favorite. The burn is consistent, the ash is white and tight, draw is exceptional and it is succulent front the first puff to the last inch. I will definitely be purchasing more of these.
Creamy start, bitter finish
Cigarhistory on 04/03/16
Very smooth out of the gates. Very light milk chocolate flavors come straight away. As a surprise with such a young stick, there was an absolute lack of harshness. Cuban twang was in the far background. Not much change in the second third, just beautifully robust, and creamy chocolate. The body kicked up to a medium full here, but was never harsh at all. During the final third, company came over as I was finishing up and I started pulling a little to hard on it. This made the cigar fairly hot and flavors turned bitter. Overall, this was a fantastic smoke. Just have to remember to smoke slowly
Mild and fantastic smoke
Joe on 03/29/16
Given the combination of finest wrapper, binder, and filler, and one of a kind blend, the Montecristo Classic Yellow #1 stands out as a complex and flavorful smoke on the milder side with bountiful taste notes and an easy draw.

Classic smoke, this is something you can keep around and give to anyone that hasn't smoked before and even seasoned smokers. Mild-medium with great flavor some spice but overall creamy and very smooth. Easy smoke worth the money

The name says it all. This Monte is a true classic in everyone's humidor. This smoke is everything you want in a great cigar, burn,ash, smoke and finish. Enjoy one with a great glass of single barrel small batch bourbon.
One to savor
Cigar Fiend on 01/28/16
This is a great relaxation cigar. It burns slowly with thick, creamy smoke. Flavor profile includes burnt almonds and chocolate, sweetened coffee with notes that are both mildly spicy and sweet. Medium flavored, well wrapped and long burning. Do not smoke this cigar fast. This is a gem to be savored.

Probably one of my favorite sticks from the montecristo line. Perfect for day on the golf course. Extremely smooth and lasts. Perfect contruction, the cap is so perfect I prefer to punch this cigar for that reason. It has never unraveled even a little for me
Andrew on 10/28/15
The Monticristo classic is a great cigar that still hits the charts in high ratings after all this time. Its still a great super premium Cigar that's got great construction and the,flavors are incredibly well done
Montecrisco + Jimmy Buffett!
wastinaway on 10/27/15
Can't afford them very often, but I save them while reading the latest Stephen King book and listening to Jimmy Buffett and the Coral Reefer Band. Pure pleasure and escape to the lower latitudes! Pure poetry in song with my favorite cigar of all time. Hope that we will be able to purchase Cubans before all of my "summers and winter scattered like splinters and twenty more years slip Away!

The Montecricto Classic is truly a Classic. A smooth tasting cigar that exudes wonderful taste throughout the entire cigar. This is a slow cool burning cigar that is top notch from its smooth silky wrapper all the way to the nub! This cigar does last quite a while. So be sure to set aside enough time to really enjoy this stick!

Monte being Monte

Montecristo has been making fabulous cigars for years and this is a fine exhibit. It is well constructed, draws nicely, burns evenly and does not break the bank. It it a mild to medium with plenty of subtle flavor.
A good cigar
maroiu on 10/18/15
Really enjoyable cigar. The construction of my particular cigar wasn't great, but it had a really good flavor. I have no idea if it was just my cigar or if they all have construction problems. Very likely it was just the result of some not so delicate handling. Other than that though I did like this cigar.
A True Classic!
Pfk on 10/17/15
The Montecristo Classic is just that....A true Classic! A perfectly made cigar well wrapped with an excellent slow burn. Very easy and cool draw with outstanding flavor thought the entire smoke. This is a long lasting and very fulfilling cigar. Very well worth trying this one out. Just make sure you set enough time aside to thoroughly enjoy it!
As good as it gets
Vic on 10/17/15
This is a favorite that I try to never be out of in humidor. It has excellent construction and looks beautiful . The draw, both cold and during smoking is just about perfect! Flavor is mild, but you can taste leather and white pepper throughout the smoke, and speaking of smoke it's plentiful and the burn is as close to perfect as you can get. Very consistent Definitely a Go-To! Great cigar
Bowie cigar lover on 10/17/15
Smooth easy smoking cigar. This smoke is on the slim side for me. It tends to burn a bit hot after the halfway for me. Good build that holds up well to my wet nervous bite. Mild but flavorful meaning just enough to appreciate. I would not share these. They are to good to share.
Wow. The best one
Smokey on 10/16/15
I received one of these in a sampler pack a few months ago. I saw they were listed among the 5 packs on sale and decided to lite it up. All I can say is, this was one GREAT cigar. From the time I put fire to it, I smoked it to the end. Nice draw and smoke. Great construction. The flavor didn't knock me off my feet. I ordered the 5 pack.
dry but good
patLOVEScon on 10/16/15
one of my first cigars as I am new to the trade. I was very pleased with the taste but feel as if the leaf was a little too dry even after being in the humidor for a few days. most likely would buy again if it was on sale.
Give it a shot
Cimmino44 on 10/16/15
You can't go wrong when reaching for a stick and choosing a montecristo I'm usually a #2 guy but was given this by a friend it had a good draw but wasn't a fan of the mouth feel not because of this stick but I'm used to the number 2 it was a great smoke and was consistent all the way thru no relighting or canoeing of funny burn great smoke
Pfk on 10/15/15
The name says it all, a true classic. Finely made smooth wrapper. This cigar booms with flavor and rich billows of creamy smoke. It will last a long while, so be sure to set aside ample time to thoroughly enjoy this fine smoke.
good but not great ....
Cigarfreak87 on 08/04/15
I hate to say this but just like the previous montecristo cigar that I reviewed this to me was just not up to par for the montecristo brand, it may just be that I don't like these cigars or that they actually were not the oremium quality that I should expect from them
Day or night
