Quick Cigar Review: Montecristo (Cuba) Especial No. 1 (1984)

The draw on this cigar was a bit tight, but not tight enough to affect the smoke, which is common of most cuban cigar, and lancero cigars. The burn was perfect, never had to touch it and the construction was fabulous, especially holding up like this for 31 years. While this wasn’t the most flavorful or complex cigar, it was elegant and nuanced. I was worried before smoking and during the first third that this cigar might have aged out being 31 years old, but she definitely still has some life in her and it was a pleasure and a privilege to smoke such an aged cigar.

Quick Cigar Review: Ramon Allones | Specially Selected

Although not overly complex, this cigar was more than what I expected. I have smoked a few RASS in the past and did not recall them being this good. Smooth, rich, creamy and very enjoyable sums up this cigar quite well. The appearance of the cigar on the pre-light may have led many aficionados to pass on this cigar (me included), but this is the perfect example of “don’t judge a book by it’s cover.” I’ll certainly be seeking more of these out.

Perhaps with some more time this would be something special, but for the moment, I doubt it will justify the hefty price tag it will take to get one.
