This 5×55 maduro wrapped stick offered quite the punch, considering it’s a Montecristo! Flavors were extremely consistant and simple from start to finish offering a deep smooth wood, with a hint of nuts nearer the end. A slight oil was left on the lips, and it had a nice pepper and spice kick on the long finish. The body was medium-full, but never overwhelming. Burn was excellent and also the draw. Great stick! A huge thank you to Tinderbox.com for donating the stick for review as part of their Platinum Sampler!
