Punchy and at the same time full of delicate floral notes and hints of vanilla, the No.5 has an underlying bitterness which is pleasantly reminiscent of cedar wood, which gives depth to the smoke. Very similar to the Montecristo No.4, the No. 5 is more direct and will burn faster giving the impression that it is a stronger cigar.
Montecristo - No. 5

"Cedary and oaky flavours have underpinnings of dark espresso notes and a touch of sweetness, especially on the finish." - Cigar Aficionado April 2013
