The Montecristo No.5 happens to be the best-rounded cigar in its class. It is soft, flaky, and a touch on the sweet side. It has depth without being too strong or bitter. It incorporates a hint of cedar & floral notes are just right as they add character without overwhelming you. Montecristo No.5 is a beautiful cigar, an elegantly dark and rich brown, with fine veins present on its surface. The feel of the wrapper is smooth and oily to touch. The construction is solid and consistent, without any soft or hard spots.
