Monte Pascoal – Cigar Review

Monte Pascoal Robusto Review
Wesley at Tobacos Mata Fina was kind enough to send me these samples to try out.
The Brazilian Mata Fina wrapper has a few small veins.  It is a relatively dry or felt like leaf with a chocolate brown color.
It is packed very tight and even.  I chose to cut this robusto and the pre-light draw was pretty much perfect.
It has a very strong smell.  It smells sweet and earthy.  I like what I am seeing so far.  It is a great looking, smelling, and feeling cigar.
I lit the cigar and was greeted with a first third dominated sweet and earthy smoke with a dry and slightly spicy finish.  Each puff produces a ton of smoke.  The ash is camo patterned with white and black.  The burn is dead even so far.
The second third has thick mild/medium sweet peppery smoke with a spicy finish.  I love the simple flavor of this third.  The burn and draw could not be any better, perfect construction.
The final third advances to medium/full body with lots of earth and red pepper flavor.  The finish is not as dry as the previous two thirds and now leaves your tongue coated in a buttery spice.  Take care not to let the end of this cigar burn too fast or it will turn bitter on you.

This medium bodied cigar is a real hit in my book.  Priced at roughly $4 each, these robustos feature perfect construction and a unique Brazilian tobacco that will suit most cigar smokers well.  While not incredibly complex, the over all flavor is well balanced and perfectly blended.  It is not too mild and not too full bodied, so I think everyone will be pleased with this cigar.  Keep an eye out for the Monte Pascoals as I feel these will be an up and coming cigar.
