The first Montecristo Añejados I tried a few months ago unfortunately did not draw very well, yet a second cigar (47 ring gauge by 178 mm) showed lots of spice and wet earth character with a wet mahogany undertone and a silky texture. It definitely has the flavor of tobacco five to eight years of age but the inconsistency in construction detracts from the overall quality. I smoked many different cigars and many seemed tight. Rumor is that they were put aside almost ten years ago for the U.S. market. But embargo was never dropped. So here it is.
