Before lighting up
Pre-light aroma is light and, with some hints of flowers.
The Edmundo presents an even burn line, and there is a nice ash on the cigar of charcoal gray that holds firm until tapped. The draw loosens up a bit in the second third. Remains cool throughout.
Smooth spice, nuts, and leather dominate the outset—quite a bit of flavor for a cigar that has such mild pre-light aroma.
The middle third opens up with more leather and some pleasant tannins indicative of a cigar that will age well.
The flavors profile turns bolder and finishes with a full-flavored pepper and spice down to the nub.
To summarize, great burning... smooth and warm full flavors.

Edmundos - A pleasant Surprise!!
I tried these stogies back in 2005. Unfortunately, they did not leave a great impression on me then - to this effect, I could not recollect anything worthwhile.
Notwithstanding the above, I decided to give them a try again as nowadays I have come to love Robustos. (Edmundos are bigger than regular Robustos but being a firm fan of Montes, I decided to chance it.)
Upon the receipt of my order through Cigar Terminal, I let the stogies rest for a month and just gave one a go.
Boy, I have been wrong all along. They were EXQUISITE.
The evolution, the flavor and the body were out of this world - with absolutely, no rough edges at all! Spices, cocoa, cinnamon, wood & sweet tobacco all in one bundle!
I do recommend them to all who enjoy super refined Robustos.
