Cigar Review: Montecristo Nicaragua Series Toro

Initial Thoughts:

The Montecristo name is almost synonymous with cigars. They've been making cigars for decades, and they're one of the biggest names in the cigar game.

Although I've not smoked many Montecristo cigars in my day, when I saw the Montecristo Nicaragua Series on the shelf, I knew I had to try it. The cigar is beautiful and it appears to be very well made. I'm excited to dive in.

Final Thoughts:

Unremarkable. That's the word I'd used to describe the Montecristo Nicaragua Series Toro. The burn of the cigar was decent enough, but the mediocre flavors were totally underwhelming. Even after spending an hour on the cigar, I couldn't taste it on my palate after I was done. Not a bad thing in and of itself, but worthy of mentioning because of the blandness of this particular stick.

For $12.99, I think there are a thousand other cigars I'd rather smoke. Because I would not smoke this again, this Montecristo Nicaragua Series Toro gets a CigarScore of 2.
