Aesthetically, it is rolled with a Colorado shaded wrapper leaf, that is silky to the touch. The demand of the cigar is high and the production9 is not always up to expectations.
Montecristo Edmundo: unlit, faint hints of wood. The opening continues with cedar wood.
The first third of the cigar releases notes of cedar wood and toasted aromas, which are outlined in a mix of cappuccino and hazelnut. Earthy hints are then perceptible as well. The smoke is creamy and the strength is just slightly above medium (3.5/5).
The middle section alternates spices (mainly black pepper), earth and fresh wood. Strength increases, reaching a medium-full level (4/5). It becomes more full-bodied as well.
In the final third, the black pepper component becomes more pronounced and alternates with earth until the end.
Overall, the Montecristo Edmundo gives rise to a creamy and very balanced smoke. Evolution is not its strong point, but it is flavor intensity and harmony are. One of the best Montecristos in production.
