I didn't want it to be this bad.

I truly appreciate the elegance of the lonsdale. Not a common size much anymore, and I'm glad montecristo still carries it. However it is an unfortunate size for the red. The problem I encountered (and I've smoked several now to make sure it wasn't just a bad one I got) is that I had to get through an unforgiving, harsh start. In the beginning 1/3 of the cigar, the almost rude dominant peppery leather character left such an acrid aftertaste in the back of my mouth that it was difficult to appreciate the creamier, nuttier smoothness that opened up halfway throughout the cigar. In fact, it took until the final 1/3 of the cigar for it to become truly enjoyable, and for a lonsdale's length, it's just too much of a wait and too much mediocrity to go through before you get to the goods. Perhaps a corona or robusto would fare better with the red, but unfortunately the lonsdale here disappoints.
