Hello everyone, today I am reviewing the Monte Cruz Cameroon toro. I am only reviewing this cigar because I was gifted it from my brother Eddie. So before I begin this review, I would like to give him a big thumbs up for bringing my attention to a cigar I probably wouldn’t have tried. So with the history behind us, I am now ready to give you my verdict on if it passes the mighty “Stew” test or not.
CIGAR MAKE UP:
BINDER & FILLER: Nicaraguan / Honduran, Nicaraguan, & Peru
Length/Ring: 6 X 56
Strength: Mild to Medium
Price: Gifted but you can get a box from JR’s for $62.50.
My Observations: For a cheap priced cigar, I was totally impressed by its construction. It was truly rolled to perfection and looked great while I twirled it in my fingers. The wrapper is just beautiful in every way that is surrounded by small non noticeable veins. On my finger touch inspection, I found no soft spots and if the smoke is anything like its appearance, I know I have a winner on my hands.
- Over all “A” in the grading department
Cigar Label: Very cool with the shield and swords. The colors blend very well too which are made up of yellow, black, red, and white.
Snip: Straight cut.
Pre-Draw: Slight hint of spice.
Flavors: The 1st third of this cigar consisted of light spice, and coffee. The 2nd third consisted of spice, coffee, and chocolate. The last third continued with these flavors and that’s how she finished out.
Burn line: Even.
Liked it: Yes
Recommend it: Yes.
Hint: Well worth the money
Until Next Time
