Appearance of Montecristo White
The Montecristo White Rothchilde’s case is in a classic white and beige box. Inside, the light brown wrapper has a clean, white band with a circular logo. This design is simple, classic, and minimalist.
There are a few veins, and the construction looks solid. The oil on the wrapper is minimal, too.
The cocoa is a distinct aroma of the cigar. In the cold draw, the cocoa and some earthy notes are present.
The cigar is mild in the first puffs. The medium body was building up slowly in the first third. There are no cocoa flavors yet, but other flavors such as cashew and peanut were present. It was smooth and soothing to smoke with some leathery notes, a tinge of pepper, and the trademark creaminess of a Montecristo.
During the second third, the flavors become milder. The vanilla flavors touch the palette while fading in and out. This flavor profile is a pleasant surprise; though I was expecting the body to become bolder, the vanilla flavors tempered the flavors and made the cigar creamier.
The pepper flavors were gentle, going along with the buttery notes that sustained the cigar’s mild appeal.
The final third was the same mild to medium profile. Besides the creamy notes and buttery flavors, the final third began with bourbon-like vanilla. It was more on the mild side, with the peppery flavors setting in nicely. There are also some hints of raisin and oak over the taste profile, which were pleasant. I was expecting cocoa because of the aroma, but it didn’t appear in the flavor palette.
While the burn is not perfect, the ash held up just fine without issues. The draw was easy and, overall, the cigar is easy to smoke.
The buttery and vanilla flavors were balanced and consistent throughout the smoking session. It started a little peppery, but the creaminess soon took over. Montecristo White Rothchilde is a good cigar for relaxation because its mild to medium body is consistently buttery. It is smooth and worth over an hour of smoking session.
Despite being a mellow cigar, the body and flavor didn’t dip below the high standards of a Montecristo.
This cigar is great for daytime smoke during the weekends. If you are relaxing on the beach out of town or visiting the golf course, carry a stick with you. This cigar is fine without pairing with any drink, while it had a good draw and solid construction. I give it an 85.
