The Montecristo #7 is a cigar that I have been looking into lately but not learning much about. This panetela larga was discontinued in 1998 and there’s something about it being unavailable for purchase that makes me more and more interested in it’s history and success as a product. The whole concept of rolling an almost 7 inch cigar with a ring gauge of 28 tells me that it must have been a challenge, at best, to produce with a consistency of quality. The small ring gauge cigars always fascinate me with their complexity and evolution of flavor but the draw must have been hit and miss at times….
I’m sure there are boxes of these in personal humidors around the world and as years go by, their flavors must be improving daily. If any of you know anything about these elegant Cubans, please leave a comment. Thanks
