"Very mellow, No Flavor"
This is a perfect 1st time cigar. Very mellow, no bite. Easy smoke, even burn. Not much about this Montecristo.

"5 Stars all the way"
I don t understand why this stick is getting bad reviews. This is a great stick from beginning to end. It had an even burn, easy draw with good smoke output and a nice creamy taste. I always have a few of these in my humi.

"Great smooth creamy smoke"
I don t see why this one has so many bad reviews, it was a great smooth creamy smoke start to finish, burned nicely and an easy draw

"Avoid this Cigar"
What can I say...the cigar was bland and did not burn well at all. I expect more from Montecristo but I would avoid this one at all cost. Not worth the money or time.

"Not very good"
For the most expensive cigar in my sampler, it tasted alot like the cheap cigars I tried. I would not buy again.

"A Little Bland"
Not what I expected for a cigar of this price. Hardly any taste, tasted bland like smoking a Macanudo. Decent draw, very well constructed. No complexity of flavors. Left me wanting more..

"AVOID this stick made of short filler scraps"
The first one, I thought this must be an accidental miss labeling. No way in hell could a Monte Classic be this bad.
Then, when the second and third where just as bad, I really did think someone at Montecristo, or Famous, was putting
Classic bands on second hand sticks. Realizing I ve NEVER had anything but a good buying experience from
Famous for many years now, I quickly abandoned my conspiracy theory. I am bewildered to say the least. These cigars
smell and burn like second hand short filler cheap crap sticks. The White #2 has always been one of my top 3 favorites.
The Classic when it had just one brown band, not a second yellow band was also one of my top 5 favs. BECAUSE
this stick is so bad, I will never look at Monte the same again. AVOID AVOID AVOID!! Don t even buy samplers with
this crap stick in them....or if you do, give this one away to someone you don t like!!! Montecristo should be embarrassed
and pull these from the shelves immediately.

I bought a 5-pack of the Montescristo Robustos. So far, I ve smoked 3. Two of the three have been awful - bad draw, extremely bitter, no flavor to speak of. As far as I can tell, these cigars are living on their reputation and quality is not even considered any longer. The third was a mediocre smoke; no comparison to any number of lesser reputation cigars that are cheaper and better Carillo; Fratello; even R&J . I have no interest in investing any more hard-earned dollars in trying to see if I simply got a bad batch; considering their price and reputation, one shouldn t have to give them chance after chance.
