Montecristo No 3 1959 Pre Embargo


Oh My!



Preclip it seemed to smell grassy. slightly
odd compared to recent montes.

great structure very consistent feel.

prelight draw was perfect.

initial light earthy and mild.

it was that way for about the first 1/4.
smoked quickly to that point. very easy to nose.

then the flavors opened with a hint of cocoa

it went down smooth to the half way point...then the nicotine picked up and i slowed - in part to the fine roll as well.
nose was splendid.

it was that way until the last quarter where the grassiness and slight pepper picked up.
the pepper could also have been tarishness - very nice.
