Would you like to have a handful of Fuente-crafted cigars in the price range of $2.50-$5 per stick? Montesino cigars offer that kind of value in most of the vitolas. Let’s take a look at what Tabacalera Fuente y Cia turns out for a few bucks each.
Montesino is one of the Fuente’s oldest brands. Carlos and his son Carlito Fuente began making the Montesino brand of cigars in the Dominican Republic in 1991. The tobacco blend has been the same for their whole run. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it, right?
These cigars have plenty of admirers, cigar enthusiasts who enjoy having a daily, high-quality smoke that doesn’t blow the budget. This is by design. Montesino cigars add a low-cost option to the stable of Fuente smokes that includes the Don Carlos, Opus X, Hemingway, Anejo and Casa Fuente brands among others.
Montesino Cigars Tobacco Blend and Flavor
The filler and binder of these cigars is tobacco cultivated in the Dominican Republic. Montesino sticks sport a rich US-grown Connecticut Broadleaf in natural and maduro choices.
The flavor profile produced by this blend is bright and somewhat spicy with underlying notes of coffee bean, espresso, toasted nuts and wood. The smoke is quite creamy. The body is mild to medium.
Montesino Maduro stogies are a medium-bodied cigar with similar flavor profile as the Natural. Woody notes predominate, and the finish is smooth and long.
