I have had Cuban Montecristo #1 many times in the past and this is one of my go to smokes that replicates the #1 perfectly.

Knock-off Monte

JHHolliday on 10/20/15

A good smoke. Not a Montecristo but well worth the price. Quite well built for an inexpensive cigar.

Great cigar.

Jeremy on 05/22/17

Excellent cigar for the price! Goes great with a strong drink. Has a nice Woody kind of taste.

Decent/okay, but overall, not that good.

MrRivera on 03/07/18

This is a very mild cigar; further, the lack of consistency of the roll is the biggest issue; i.e., within the bundle, there will be 3-4 (at least) stogies that are non-smokable due to the poor rolling. However, using a poke will help in the draw, but I will not order these again. Not to mention, they tastes nothing like or close to a Cubano cigar that is is supposed to be like.

So so

It was a smooth tast but i found it was hard to draw. Maybe ok for the money but not close to the real montecristo. My wife said it did not smell like a good cigare.

Good Stuff

DWDENNIS on 12/27/17

A fine corona type flavor and consistency. Leaves are small and delicate from the top of the plant, the corona, which is why I make the reference. A DAMN good smoke.

These are really good.

JohnB on 10/31/17

The bundle I got had no cigars with construction issues. They draw and burn well with lots of creamy smoke. They seem to be more Mild/Medium than Medium/Full though. The first few I smoked were smooth and consistent to the end. The last few have been bitter at first then mellowing out by 1/2 way. I have smoked 10 already and decided to let the other 10 age, wrapped in Spanish cedar, in my humidor in hopes of losing the bitter taste. I will likely buy these again and will recommend them to friends.

For the price

12string on 05/23/16

Is it a Montecristo? No! Exactly the same as a Montecristo? No!! But it is a real fine substitute for the price

Yes, I'm a big fan

Luger9 on 04/25/16

I really enjoy the MC No 1 but the price keeps creeping up. I alternate between quitting entirely and puffing MC #1s like a cooling tower on 3-mile island.

Fire it up!

rockcave on 10/06/15

This has been my "Go To" cigar for years. Very consistent in flavor and drool factor. I have compared to MC Number 1 and found little difference. The burn is even. Draw is better with a plug cut vs a notch, but that is expected with any smoke. Never had a runner as you might expect from a cheap cigar.

Pretty good

Unkown on 04/01/18

You occasionally find one that is hard to draw, but for the most part, they're OK.

Nice cigar

TOM227 on 09/02/15

I really enjoy these cigars. The real thing is much too expensive in Canada, but these are very nice. I travel to the Southern U.S. often & try to stop in to shop
