After Toast:

First Third – Dark Chocolate and sweet spice followed by a sweet spice and leathery finish. The burn is sharp and ash fell at inch and half mark. 

Second Third – The dark chocolate and spice remain but there are some cedar notes that begin to enter the fold. The leather still packs a punch on the finish. The burn remains sharp.

Final Third – Dark Chocolate, spice and cedar continue here with that leathery finish picking up some pepper notes on the finish. The burn remains sharp.

Overall Experience:

Overall the Montecristo Media Noche is a good smoke experience with a few really good notes that keep it interesting. The dark chocolate and spice are the key to this smoke, but the leather and cedar play nice complimentary roles. I have smoked quite a few of these and they never seem to disappoint and are always consistent.
