Montecristo No.5 - 25 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.

Excellent construction, with a sheen to the wrapper. Even bunch at the foot.

Smoking Notes:

Before lighting up

Aroma of sweet tobacco with a hint of barnyard and some cocoa.

Burn/ Draw

Perfect burn and a nice comfortable draw.

Initial third:

Sweet with some light spice. Some cream seeps in there at the end of the first third.

Middle third:

The light spice fades in and out but there is now some coffee and cocoa and more cream.

Final third:

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.

Smoking time:

40 - 60 Minutes

Needed at age them a little, but the ammonia is gone now and they taste great. Leathery and a little spicy. Real nice for a quick smoke.

I love this cigar. I found it to be smooth yet bold. It's a quick smoke so you can have it anytime of day. I highly recommend.

Order came very fast, and was double vacuum sealed.
Great cigar, taste was basically identical to a no.4 but in a much quicker, 20-40 minute smoke.

Had a very even burn for being a smaller cigar, slightly tighter draw than a no.4, but all the great flavors, with a pretty uniform taste of slight spice, strong cocoa, leather, dark coffee grounds, earthiness, and creamy vanilla, didn't notice nuttiness, but it is a great smoke at a wonderful price, much bolder taste than a purito. I did notice slight ammonia and sourness, smoked straight out of the box, but are now sitting in my humidor. I recommend these definitely to have in your arsenal, when you're feeling a bit frugal and need a quicker smoke. great value and taste, but if you were to buy a box of 4's Vs 5, shell out a little extra for a box of no.4's the slightly bigger ring gauge felt like it allowed me to smoke it down lower, worth it since it burned cooler for me when it became a nub.
