Montecristo Open Junior

Back to back Cubans, let’s go! This is a solid little cigar – I’m assuming the pack is going to be tight. What is tight though is the double band; not bad at all. The first third has white pepper heat; there is not much else going on apart from the draw which is a […]

Started to get a little sour at the end […]
