Review:

Before lighting:

Wrapped tight. The 3 bands are a beautiful presentation. Before lighting, the White Monte Cristo had a delightful aroma. Earthy and sweet.

After lighting:

Cigar had a good draw. It had a rough tar beginning but mellowed out as smoked. The overall harshness was not worth the price. I like Monte Cristo’s but this one, not so much.
