The Montecristo No. 5 cigar is small in stature at 4” x 40, yet it is a giant in the continued legacy of the Montecristo brand. Its compact size makes it one of the best values in the Montecristo range and a best-selling option perfect for any time or place where there is a need for a great smoke.

The cigar’s blend of savoy Vuelta Abajo tobaccos delivers an impressively smooth and complex medium-bodied experience. The Montecristo No. 5 cigar’s lively array of flavors includes coffee, pepper, chocolate, nut, fruit, earth, and spice notes. Sweet and creamy waves maintain a sophisticated harmony before bursts of boldness fill out the grand finale.

The Montecristo No. 5 is a fantastic pairing option for your morning coffee, as well as rum, whisky, or ale later in the day. A box of 25 Montecristo No. 5 cigars is a great way to stock up your humidor with Montecristo cigars while enjoying good value compared to larger, more expensive Cuban cigars.

Short as it is, this 102 mm length of cigar is a real pleasure to smoke. This short Montecristo is well-built with a fulfilling draw. It gives an even draw while producing rich plumes of smoke. With around 30 minutes of smoking, this cigar provides a wonderful exploration of flavors. Right after lighting and smoking the cigar, a spicy flavor which could be a bit harsh will greet the palate. Halfway, the spicy flavor slowly fades and a little of it is left thus changing the strength to mild. As the last third progresses, notes of cocoa and roasted coffee beans are noticeable which made it incredibly delicious.
