Montecristo Linea 1935



Made in Cuba

Wrapper, binder, filler: Cuba

Grand robusto

153 mm × 53 (21.04 mm)

Price: €18.20

Appearance: Beautiful smooth and silky colorado wrapper. Supple to the touch.

Flavors before lighting: Notes of cedar, earth and gray pepper. Decent draw.


First third: Nice earthy and oily flavors with bark in the first puffs. The strength gradually settles down and the cigar become more rounded.

Second third: Little change to the flavor profile: the blend of earthy-cocoa and bitter-fresh peat is still present. The cigar is supple and harmonious, albeit somewhat flat.

Final third: A significant increase in strength, becoming almost dizzying. The cigar, increasingly earthy, loses its finesse and balance until a heavy finish.

Comments from the panel: “Personality and presence”; “Robust, enterprising but not mellow enough”; “Look out for the uppercut in the final third!”

When to smoke it: After lunch.

The Amateur’s Conclusion: Undoubtedly too young, this fiery Maltés is a tad unbalanced, which may put some smokers off. It should mellow out with age.
