Montecristo Open Master
Elegant and refined, the Open Master is a Robusto that has become highly sought after by cigar collectors all around the world.
With its crisp, fresh flavors and mid to light strength body, this cigar is ideal for those who like to smoke while outdoors. It’s ideal for people who are new to cigar smoking and don’t want a cigar that’s too overwhelming.
Montecristo Open Master Overview
With an easy draw and the intense flavors holding out until the final third, this is the perfect stick to take with you on your outdoor adventures. Named after the tennis competition, the Open Master, this 4.9” 50 gauge stogie has the perfect balance of spice and sweetness.
Smoking Montecristo Open Master
Look at the Open Master cigar and you will note bumps and veins on the wrapper, golden with a beautiful oily sheen. Pre-lit, the foot emits scents of cedar and hay. The pre-draw reveals a robust and earthy profile with sweet caramel and a tang of barnyard.
Upon lighting the Open Master, you’ll note that the first draws may be tight. They do open up, offering a consistent burn throughout. The smoke is aromatic and oily, redolent with wood and nuttiness.
In the first third, the spiciness makes room for more subtle notes like cocoa and coffee. The middle third exhibits a slight bitterness blended with fresh cream, along with a well-rounded balance of butternut sweetness, cedar, and high citrus tones.
In the final third, the cigar finishes with a medium-strength denouement that is uncharacteristic of Cuban tobacco. It’s this final third surprise that contributes to the cigar’s popularity among collectors.
The Open Master is a Montecristo, one of the most popular marcas from Cuba, and it ages and maintains its value very well. Rarity has pushed up its price in recent years.
Montecristo Open Master Experience
This cigar is the perfect companion for an outdoor afternoon. It offers complex flavors and medium strength and body. Taking about an hour to smoke entirely, the Master Open cigar does not overwhelm but provides layers of subtle flavors.
An extremely smooth smoking cigar. Notes of light chocolate & cedar flavors. A great afternoon cigar or anytime for that matter.
Nice mild smoke and quite enjoyable as I sit at my workbench and work at my hobby. Crisp and clean from start to finish fine aroma and taste. Good all-around smoke to start or end out a day.
Ordered another shipment of Monte Cristo Open Master cigars and great as usual, excellent draw and superb taste, beginning to end. Shipment arrived in 2 weeks from date of order and arrived fresh and ready to enjoy. Will re-order when I need to again from them.
Service was excellent! It’s was my second order, it was a larger order, 2 boxes and about 45 singles, One of the boxes came first and then about 4 days later the rest of the order showed up. All cigars were in great condition. I order will continue to order from Angelo with full confidence. (First box – 8 days, rest of it 12 days)
