Cigar Review: Montecristo Grand Edmundo Edición Limitada 2010

Montecristo Grand Edmundo Edición Limitada 2010
When Habanos s.a. announced the release of the Grand Edmundo I was excited, but it was going to be hard to follow up the Sublime of 2008. The great thing about the 2010 Montecristo Grand Edmundo is that it is in the cañonazo format which is a first, since this size is only available in the Cohiba Siglo VI. The cigar measures 5 5/6" with a 52 ring gauge and is wonderfully balanced. The cigar comes packaged in boxes of 10 and is a sight to see. 
 
I have been aging these for over a year now and I am going start opening them up. Aroma at cold is of dry tobacco and some sweetness as well. Right when you light the cigar up, you are greeted with this mocha flavor that is reminiscent of a chocolate mousse. After the first third it is still chocolaty, but very light. So far, this is a dessert cigar, I would smoke this after a nice dinner with a port and some chocolate sweet. Really pleasant and easy.

Just finished the second third and the light chocolate has faded away, and is now of toast, fungi, and some dark chocolate. So far, the burn has been wonderful, no issues and the draw has been perfect as well. I am on the last third of the cigar now, and the chocolate has come back and is really pleasant. This cigar has remained a dessert cigar and is really nice. I find that this cigar is not an everyday smoke and limited to certain times. I know you could smoke this anytime, but with it's flavor profiles it would do best with a dessert. The body of the smoke remained very mild-medium and at no point was ever harsh. I give this cigar a 90, and imagine that the others will remain similar. I suggest aging these cigars for a year or two plus and they will be great.
