Montecristo Supremos 2019 LE Appearance:
From the moment you get to see the box of Montecristo Supremos, you know right away that you are in front of a special cigar. They come in a very elegant bright yellow varnished luxury box of 25 cigars which stands out from any other Montecristo box and any other Edicion Limitada from Habanos. The vitola is also unusual for a Montecristo, as it is a Montesco, the same as the very popular Romeo y Julieta Wide Churchill, it is one of the biggest thickest Montecristo available. Visually, the cigar looks stunning, it has a beautiful dark brown wrapper (Colorado to Colorado-Maduro). It also feels very good between the fingers, well packed from the head to the foot, with no soft spots and a good spring when gently squeezed. The Montecristo Supremo is adorned with a large golden secondary band with black lettering that reads Edición Limitada 2019.
Montecristo Supremos 2019 Smoking Notes:
Before lighting up
The cigar emits beautiful aromas of tobacco, chocolate with hints of spices and leather.
Once the cap is cut, the Montecristo Supremo reveals an amazing draw, with a good amount of resistance to it. It lights up easily and right away there are plenty of chocolate flavors with a good amount of spices in the mix. Some notes of cream and nougat are also noticeable. Very beautiful opening.
The construction of the Montecristo Supremo is fitting its name, it is supreme – perfect draw, burning slowly and the ash is holding on beautifully way past the first third mark. Each draw releases plenty of thick blue smoke. The flavors are as beautiful, the cigar is very rich and complex. In addition to the flavors on the opening, there is now also plenty of cream which balances the notes of coffee, spices and leather. The flavor profile is amazing: it is just spicy enough, not acidic or sour and just strong enough: somewhere in between medium and full body.
Toward the middle of the cigar, the Montecristo 2019 Edition gets stronger and is now well towards full strength. However, this doesn’t hamper the smoking experience whatsoever. The flavors remain very enjoyable, with now the addition of some earthiness to the mix while there the spices come and go all throughout the middle part of the cigar. The draw remains impeccable and the burn while a bit wavy from time to time, self corrects without needing to touch it.
In the final third, the Montecristo Supremo 2019 remains amazing, the flavor profile remains similar, with still plenty of earth, spices, cream and here and there, some hints of sweetness. The strength has now well reached the full mark. Great smoke until the nub.
In short, the Montecristo Supremo is another fantastic Limited Edition cigar from Habanos SA. Grab 2 boxes, smoke one while age the other one, as this cigar is surely a future legend.
