The 25 Best Cigars of the Year 2006
Montecristo Petit Tubo
So what if this is the same thing as Cuba's largest production cigar, the ubiquitous Montecristo No. 4? We have found more often than not in recent years that the bread-and-butter smoke of Cuba is of very good to outstanding quality, even if it is made in dozens of factories on the island. Throw it in a tube and you are ready for a night out on the town, without having to take your cigar case. The Montecristo comes in small cardboard boxes of five. The smoke delivers mild yet flavorful tobacco character and it's quick and easy thanks to its petit corona size, or 5 inch by 42 ring dimension.
