Montecristo No.5 - 10 cigars [4.0 x 40]
The taste of this little one is almost like his bigger brothers.
- • Full of flavor and very spicy yet creamy.
- • It also has a very earthy taste. It is a heavy cigar but never becomes unpleasant.
The trick is to smoke it slowly. Then it doesn’t get hot and you can enjoy this stick for about an hour.
The Montecristo No. 5 comes in a boite nature box of 10 cigars with Habanos Packing Code CB-UW-n-10-n-10
Ring Gauge: 40
Shape: Tres Petit Corona / Perla
Excellent construction, with a sheen to the wrapper. Even bunch at the foot.
Before lighting up
Aroma of sweet tobacco with a hint of barnyard and some cocoa.
Perfect burn and a nice comfortable draw.
Sweet with some light spice. Some cream seeps in there at the end of the first third.
The light spice fades in and out but there is now some coffee and cocoa and more cream.
The spice picks back up again with some leather and toast. Still creamy with a bit of musk. The musk is most pleasant.
In summary, an excellent smoke when smoked very slowly.

pepper and cream
- I really enjoyed this cigar on a mild day with a cappuccino. It begins with rather peppery spice but soon mellows out to a dark chocolate cream flavour.
- But there are better Cuban and non-Cuban Petit Coronas out there at a better price point.
