MONTECRISTO BY AJ FERNANDEZ TORO

The Monte by Montecristo AJ Fernandez Toro features a dark and oily Habano 2000 wrapper over the finest vintage Dominican Criollo binder and filler tobaccos. AJ’s new Monte is medium to full body in strength and brimming with chocolate, nuts, and dark roast coffee flavors, all rounded out with a delightful caramel sweetness. 

Burnt breads, a generic woodiness, creaminess, and minerals dominate the final third. Through the nose there are herbs, a mild white pepper, peppermint candy, and a pineapple sweetness. The pepper is notably long-lasting, beating out all other flavors into the finish in terms of being the last one standing. While the burn remains uneven, I again manage to avoid touching up two of the three samples, though I’m guessing it’s just delaying the inevitable. It remains medium-full in body and flavor, though the strength has now picked up to similar levels and is showing signs of getting much stronger.
