Characteristics With its elegant dark brown Morrón maduro wrapper from the Mexico’s San Andres Valley, this well-fermented leaf radiates with a deep, oily sheen. Its taste is rich and powerful and is given even greater depth by a harmonious filler blend of Nicaraguan and Honduran tobaccos. This three-way combination results is a smoke reminiscent of burned cream, slightly rustic yet smooth. Unlike any other cigar with a Mexican wrapper we have smoked. Insider’s Tip The Montecristo brand has its roots in 1930s Cuba, but this Dominican Republic version, born in the 1990s, has ventured lights years from its Havana roots. This gentle box-pressed variation is the smoothest of any cigar with a Mexican wrapper we have smoked, with the 6 x 54 Toro being especially enjoyable.
