After Toast:

First Third – The first third starts with a vanilla cream flavor mixed with nuts and cedar. Mild start to this cigar. A subtle anise flavor is noticed on the finish. The burn is sharp and ash falls just shy of the 2-inch mark.

Second Third – Here, I start to get a bread/toast characteristic hitting the palate on the transition. Still has a slight cream as well as the anise on the finish. The burn remains sharp.

Final Third – In the final transition, a perfumed floral like note mixes into the profile of the core cream, cedar and nutty flavors. Really nice finish that constantly builds up to this point and almost summarizes the entire smoke in the final third. The finish turns cedar.

Suggested Pairing:

Rye – Bulliet

Wine – Anne de K Riesling or Illumination Sauvignon Blanc

Overall Experience:

Overall, the Montecristo White Series is a nice milder smoking experience with a lot of palate teasing flavors such as bread, vanilla and cream. This one really built upon itself adding more to the profile as you smoked on. I thought it was a good smoke and would probably have it as a morning smoke with a nice espresso or coffee.
