Cigar Review: Montecristo 75th Anniversario

Montecristo 75th Anniversario

Montecristo 75th Anniversario

My favorite B&M, Fume in Montclair, NJ recently got inthe Montecristo 75th Anniversario Desade 1935 in stock and I was happy to see the lancero included in this 5 pack sampler that has a beautiful presentation. The cigar is a celebration of this brands anniversary.

Cigar: Montecristo 75th Anniversatio Desade 1935
Size: 7.5 x 40 (Lancero)
Wrapper: Ecuadorian Habano
Binder: Nicaragua
Filler: Honduras and Nicaragua
Strength: Medium

Appearance and Construction (18/20): If not looking carefully one might think this is the Montecristo Cabinet Selection due to the similar band on the stick. The rich looking wrapper on this lancero is sweating oils that gives this cigar a wonderful appearance. The cigar has a seamless roll and a wonderful looking pigtail cap. There are no soft spots and the cigar has a nice weight to it.

Flavor & Notes (27/30): The prelight draw of this cigar has a delicious raisin note with some chocolate in the background. Once lit the cigar offers an incredibly sweet chocolate note along with some earth. As we enter the second third on this classy cigar the notes are that of raisins and earth with a little bit of mocha. The final third of the cigar was earthy with some enjoyable sweet notes in the background.

Burn/Ash/Draw (25/25): The burn line of this cigar was so incredibly straight that it might be the best burning lancero I have smoked to date. The ash is very tight and white that held on for almost half the cigar which is something I never experienced in a lancero. The draw was perfection making this an enjoyable smoking experience.

Overall (23/25): Hands down this was the best lancero I have smoked and best Montecristo as well. It was so incredibly rich and bursting with flavors that made the Montecristo 75th Anniversario a truly  memorable smoke.

    Seems yummy…thought you were on an Altadis ban?

  • Barry

    It’s a fine line the ban and perhaps it comes off as phony. I’ll review a altadis stick but ill never smoke them recreationally

    I was just searching about cigar reviews and I stumbled on your blog. Glad I did!

    Yes, it looked like Montecristo at first glance. Nice review you have here. I might give that one a try and let you know what I think of it.

  • wtf?

    You are such a hipocrit. WTF. you were calling on everyone to stop smoking altadis and now you throw up a review right after you post that altadis is sueing tat. wtf barry,

  • wtf?

    and you rated it a 93. you are a phony

  • barry

    I write my reviews in advance. My next 9 cigar reviews are already written. Call it bad timing…

    I did not pay for the cigar, I would not pay for a cigar from altadis.

    Just because I’m not supporting the company I am not going to mislead people and say a cigar is bad. Too do so would ruin all credibility.

    Thanks for the review! I’ve been looking for a good lancero to smoke this winter.

  • Steve Kuchnsky

    So what did Altadis do to PYO? I am a fan of their smokes.

    I recently smoked a 75th Ed. Number 2 and was VERY impressed. I
    ran out an tried to find more locally but to no avail. Scouring the internet looking and looking and looking…
