Of all of the people that work in the cigar industry in Cuba, its the ones who sort cigars my color have me the most curious of all. Montecristo cigars in my opinion are very very consistent in color and year after year tend to be not only exquisite in taste but beautiful to look at. What has me amazed is how someone can identify up to 100 different shades of brown. Think about it, how long do they train to be able to do this and is this kind of work hard on the eyes or is it a relaxing pastime. Cigars in a cigar box are very uniform in color, any variation reads darker to lighter from the left to the right.
Go on-line and find pictures of boxes of Montes… Tell me how many boxes have ANY variation of color at all…. These are exceptionally talented people and have my vote !!!!
