San Cristobal Monumento Cigar Review

This 7.25 x 49 stick offers a oily dark chocolate wrapper with slight tooth and fairly firm construction. The aroma has a slight sweet cocoa note along with a rich tobacco. This was a monster of a smoke pushing the 2 hour mark and building to full strength by the last bit – not an early morning smoke! It had some minor burn issues needing several corrections but nothing show stopping. Several transitions were present and flavors were fairly diverse including cream, cocoa, espresso, mocha, wood, pepper and a bit of spice. The draw was a bit firm at the start but quickly opened up to just on the loose side. Thank you very much to Ashton for donating this for review!

    an excellent review as always! i’ve smoked 2 out of a new box of robustos, and both had minor burn issues but on pair with the same flav. as you found, very nice flav changes from the start to the nub finish! very nice stick overall!
