The draw on this richly colored brown cigar imparts oaky smoke with hints of leather at first. It gains momentum, becoming chocolatey, elegant and better with every puff.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Apr 01, 2017 | Score: 89

Covered in gnarly veins, this toro is topped with a very flat head. It's a predominantly nutty smoke with floral and peppery qualities and a woody finish.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Apr 01, 2016 | Score: 87

Wrapped in a spotty, gritty cover leaf, this cigar shows hints of almond and wood, but the finish is acidic.

The Montecristo brand dates back to 1935, and one of its original sizes, the Montecristo No. 2, remains one of the world's most popular cigars. (It was also Cigar Aficionado's Cigar of the Year for 2013.) Sometimes old brands, successful or otherwise, could use some changes to add excitement, so Cuba's Habanos S.A. created the Edmundo line extention to Montecristo in 2004. Fat and distinctive, Edmundo was an immediate hit, prompting new sizes such as the short and plump Petit Edmundo in early 2007 and this Double Edmundo (which is longer, but not fatter, than the Edmundo) in 2013. With gorgeous color, hints of oak and leather, the cigar seems to get better with each puff, culminating in a chocolatey finish.
