The Montecristo 80 was first introduced to the public during the XVII Festival del Habano and has since received worldwide acclaim. Montecristo celebrated its 80th anniversary in 2015, so the Montecristo 80 was released in honor of the occasion. This limited edition cigar is an instant collectible!
Medium-full strength, these delightful Cuban cigars deliver a complex bouquet of earthy and nutty notes – that will accompany the smoker for about two hours of pure indulgence. Montecristo 80 Aniversario for Sale
The Montecristo 80 Aniversario starts medium with some woodsiness, waffle cones, acorns, and a touch of burning woods. Things don’t change much through the first two inches. Woodiness still leads on top of earthiness, and creaminess with some oatmeal cookie and milk stout flavors underneath. The flavor is full, the body is medium-full and the strength is medium. That changes by the second third with the body even fuller and strength picking up to medium. The earthiness picks up as the Montecristo gets less sweet, though there’s a thick vanilla creaminess through the nose. In addition, there’s coffee, some black pepper, and a lot more of the leaf’s characteristics. By the final third, there’s zero sweetness to the cigar, though more concerning there’s a lot more harshness.
The woodiness has now joined the earthiness upfront, though most of my attention is on the pepper, which increases as the cigar burns down. Montecristo 80 Aniversario for Sale
