Montecristo Epic Toro Cigar Review

This 6×52 stick features a dark chocolate, smooth and oily wrapper with a very firm pack, triple cap, minimal veins, tight invisible seams and a rich coffee aroma. First light reveals a perfect draw, plenty of rich smoke output with a medium body showing flavors of a smooth oily sweet tobacco and a buttery soft earthy long finish. The first third mellows a bit to mild-medium with minimal smoke output but a good amount of richness and a perfect easy draw. Burn is good and flavors are a very oily, creamy earth a bit of coffee with a fairly short clean finish. 30 minutes in at the 1/2 way point flavors are pretty much the same just dropping the coffee and ramping up the earth a bit, although it’s on the light side, not a deep musty earth. Smoke output is still light but flavors come easily and the burn is great. Ending at 1 hour 10 minutes the last third produces a medium bodied deep earth with quite a strength kick, overtaking the flavor profile with a buzz. Thank you to Altadis for sending this out in a 3-pack box for review and including Cigar Obsession in the blogger sample pack program!

    I have never been a big fan of Monticristo, but this blend sounds interesting. Would you say this is worth the suggested retail prices of $12 to $14 per stick?

    I’ve had the epis but I want to say it was a much lighter wrapper. Great review Bryan. Love the rooster waking everyone up.

      Epic not Epis. My bad.

    Walshy beat me to it! The rooster was an excellent touch, and thanks for the early morning review.
