Montecristo Open Regata
The Montecristo is a Forum vitola, measuring at 135 in length with a 46-ring gauge.
Montecristo released the Open series in 2009, aiming to create a milder blend of cigars to lure in the novice cigar smoker or those just getting familiar with the power of Cuban cigars.
The Regata is constructed immaculately, hand-rolled in a Colorado wrapper, and finished with a perfectly finished tip. This cigar is likely the most intense of the Open range, with dark rich flavours of wood and coffee mixed with a decadent nuttyness and a touch of honey. In the second half a spicy note appeared, along with some floral notes.
The burn is razor sharp on this cigar from start to finish, with the final smoke time lasting just over an hour.
We recommend aging these cigars for at least two years to allow the flavours to settle and develop their complexity. Try pairing these back to a crisp IPA on a hot summer day for a premium smoking experience.
