When it comes to cigar brands that need no introduction, Montecristo is always among the first names to come to mind, and Montecristo Classic Robusto is no doubt one of the most notable and timeless masterpieces to ever wear the unforgettable fleur-de-lis band. Crafted in the Dominican Republic at the world famous Tabacalera de Garcia, Montecristo Classic puts just a bit of a twist on the original Montecristo brand, bringing a package which includes a classic story of flavor that has withstood the test of time over and over. For this blend, Dominican filler and binder tobaccos are embraced within one of the highest grade Connecticut Shade wrappers ever harvested. This simple recipe may not sound too exciting, but trust us when we say this 91-rated gem has been known to satisfy even the most ravenous connoisseurs.


Lovingly seated in the unmistakable yellow Montecristo dress box, Montecristo Classic boasts simple, yet timeless packaging including the famous brown Montecristo band, in this example bearing a golden fleur-de-lis to denote the blend. Seamless rolling and expert craftsmanship yield a solid smoking experience every time, including a productive, smooth draw and a razor sharp burn. The experience starts off with a definitive spicy pepper note. This soon settles down into a luxurious journey of earthy tobacco and sweet floral notes, spiked here and there with hints of brown sugar and cayenne. Strength-wise, Montecristo Classic is just shy of medium-bodied, exhibiting the standard for balance and smoothness. The 5” x 52 Robusto size is a great way to get acquainted with the blend.


While just about any cigar under the Montecristo umbrella is considered to be ultra-premium, Montecristo Classic in fact makes a fine choice for just about anyone. Should a beginner choose this cigar, the balance and forgiving nature of the smoke will accommodate a developing palate nicely, while more experienced aficionados will doubtless enjoy the nostalgic nature of both the flavor profile and the legacy of the brand itself. This blend pairs well with most bourbons and single malt scotch, but also goes well with white wine or even Champagne, and appropriately, we might add, as it makes for a great celebratory cigar. As for comparable sticks, Montecristo Classic is in the same category of old school high-end Connecticut cigars such as Diamond Crown and Ashton Classic. Fine cigars will always come and go. New blends will have their time, and many will eventually fall by the wayside. Then there are the ones that never fade away, the ones that stand the test of time indefinitely. Montecristo Classic Robusto is the epitome of this type of cigar. It is no doubt a true “classic” in every way.
