Por Larrañaga Montecarlo

Por Larrañaga Montecarlo

Por Larrañaga Montecarlo 1600 900 Giuseppe Mitolo

The Montecarlo is one of the very few Panetela present in the Cuban portfolio. Since 2001/02 it has been produced by hand, although its machine made origins place it much further back in time. It is sold in the classic 25-count dress boxws.

Por Larranaga Montecarlo

The cigar is dressed in a bright Colorado Claro wrapper, with brown reflections. It is quite smooth to the touch and the veins are rather small. Sometimes the filling may present gaps, but on such a thin size it is not unusual. The draw and workmanship are excellent.

  • Size: 33 x 159 mm (6.25″)

Por Larranaga Montecarlo

Por Larrañaga Montecarlo: the cold draw reveals delicate hints of wood, nuts and white pepper.

Por Larranaga Montecarlo

Once lit, the cigar releases aromas of walnut, brioche bread and nuances of white pepper. On the passage towards the second third, there is also a discreet woody note present. Strength is medium-light (2/5).

In the central part, the flavors evolve and brings notes of spices, with hints of white pepper, honey and bitter almond to the palate. Strength remains unchanged (2/5)

In the last third, the profile is dominated by the bitter almond, which has become very pronounced, followed by honey and spices, the latter less intense than the first. Strength becomes medium (3/5).

Ultimately, despite the fact that the Por Larrañaga Montecarlo is not among the most noble and sought after Cubans, it returns a classy and satisfying smoke. The profile is highly respectable and the moderate strength is in favor of the aromas. However, it is necessary to smoke it carefully, if it burns to fast the profile can turn bitter. Perfect for an aperitif or a relaxed morning smoke.

Rating: 89
