Even though this cigar tastes different from the original Montecristo line, it has its own merits. It has a hint of acidity that old Montes don’t have: This lends a sense of freshness to the experience. It does bear a slight resemblance to Montes with tastes of mushroom and aromas of wood. But the similarities stop there. This example has a dose of sweetness like condensed milk and they all have a nice, fresh acidity.
