Montecristo Red Robusto Cigar Review

This 5×50 cigar features a butter soft dark tan wrapper with minor veins, even spongy give, tight seams, triple cap and mild wood aroma. First light reveals a perfect draw, good smoke production of mild bodied grassy and cedar flavors. It’s very smooth and subtle, no bitterness, very soft. The first third produces the same flavors, getting creamy in texture and brings the body to a solid medium. The finish is short and clean, with excellent smoke output and a nice tight ash. 35 minutes in at the 1/2 way point flavors remain unchanged, the ash held on in a solid chunk and smoke output increased slightly. Ending at 1 hour the entire stick proved to be very consistent and one-dimensional, typical of the brand. Thank you very much to viewer Jérémie Plouffe for sending this in for review!

    We carry a lot of Montecristo at our shop but not the Red…might have to be something we look in to

    Hey Bryan thanks for the review. I did notice you said that these are available pretty much anywhere. The last time I checked these are only available at JR’s. Pretty limited cigar and you can get them in a nice gift pack with a cutter, lighter and humida stick. All Montecristo products. Thanks again!!!! Keep it up.

    I really like how you give your review and relay how you recieve the experiece with out really giving away weather you really like the cigar or not. A true neutral review. A lot of other reviewers will just say how much they liked or hated the product. Great job!!
