City Cigar Weekly Features
May 22nd – May 29th, 2017
Montecristo Petit Edmundo
Ring Gauge: 52
One of Montecristo’s more recent releases (it celebrates its 13th birthday this year), the Petit Edmundo is the smaller brother of the Edmundo, both from the series that has quickly become the second most popular within the brand. This nicely balanced smoke features the characteristic Montecristo lightness, along with its usual ‘bean’ (cocoa, vanilla, chocolate) flavours. At an inch shorter than the Edmundo, the Petit arrives in an ideal size for both experienced and novice smokers.
La Aurora Untamed Maduro Robusto
Origin: Dominican Republic
Ring Gauge: 50
For well over 100 years, La Aurora has established a reputation for churning out classically mild Dominican cigars. So, when they deviate, it could be described as an ‘event’. Their new Untamed line can be considered a stab at a fiercely full-bodied cigar series, with a dark maduro wrapper that imparts strong black coffee flavours and a hearty dose of pepper.
