This is another fantastic offering in the Monster series, and I would recommend that if you haven’t had an opportunity to try one yet to hunt it down before they are gone. This is a perfect example of what a complex cigar can and should be.
“The second third flavors were well balanced and provided an amazing smoking experience. While the final third initially offered some great flavors, it soon developed a harshness that was difficult to get past. We got off on the wrong foot, however, when the wide open draw prevented the cigar from burning without constant attention in the first third. This most likely led to the acrid notes on the finish.” -Gregg (McGreggor57)
“This was a really nice smoking experience, and went for a little bit over two hours. This would be a nice smoke to have with a cocktail and a couple of friends.” -Jeff (ExpendableYouth)
“I enjoyed the change in personality of this cigar. The beginning was a nice start with a sweet smell and flavor only to give way to a bolder, bit stronger flavoring. A peppery flavor emerged in the middle but dissipated towards the end. Overall, a pleasant experience, none like I have ever experienced.” -Eric (smalls29)
This new cigar was displayed in Drew Estate’s booth (Booth #15407) at the 2015 IPCPR Tradeshow in New Orleans, LA. This was one that all four of us were excited to try so we decided not to wait for a blind review, and tell you what we think right away.
