Review: Habanos Montecristo Grand Edmundo Edicion Limitada 2010

             Montecristo is a weird brand for me.  When I first got into Habanos, I never liked Monte.  I remember my buddies whom are more experienced collectors speaking about their love for the brand, but I never got it.  However, once I experienced a few aged Edmundos and No 2’s, I started seeing why the brand had potential and explored the line.  For me, the Edmundo and Petite Edmundo just pop, along with recent production No 2.  Knowing how popular the Sublime release was, I figured the Grand Edmundo was worth exploring before they too disappeared and became highly sought after. I remember my first experience was mind blowingly good, so I had to seek out a box from my friendly neighborhood LCDH.  I knew a few collectors whom went deep on this release as well, so I figured my investment would be worth the time.

Hi everybody,

I never really got into Cohiba's & Montecristo's. May-be It's because they are too prodused. The only

one's I have Is an unopened box of SUBIME, 2008.and even them,I'll smoke them to get rid of

them now.

I never really liked this smoke. The best EL (imo) is the Cohiba 1966, those are turning into some very nice smokes, Montes are not my style, the last 2 EL 2010's I smoked were not good at all.

66 never impressed me, and not worth the money IMO.  I think these need another few years to open back up.  They were much more enjoyable fresh.

The 1966 has finally opened up, I grabbed them up for the same price as these are going for now....

These aren't $500+ a box, sublimes aren't even that.  I had another 66 two weeks ago, never impressed for the money IMO.  At $16 a stick, I do not mind laying these down a while to see if they open back up.  They really had that charred oak thing going on when I first got them.

I wasn't paying $500 a box lol I'm not buying them from Canada or Switzerland, I got 2 boxes for $270 each when they first came out.

It's a very balanced and complex cigar, which offers much sweeter caramel and earthy mushroom.
