The Montecristo Linea 1935 Dumas
Continuing on our Montecristo journey, today we will take a look at the Dumas. The Dumas is the smallest vitola in the Linea 1935 line from Montecristo- a line created to commemorate Montecristo’s birth year and to give Cuban lovers a more full-flavored Montecristo. The Dumas is considered a Robusto, weighing in at 5.1 inches x 49 RG. The presentation of both the box and cigar itself are stunning.
If Montecristo was going for a full-flavored smoke while maintaining that core Montecristo DNA, they most definitely succeeded. Notes of Cocoa, coffee, leather, salt, and Cuban twang are found throughout. The Dumas is enjoyable in the present, but definitely could benefit from some aging, as the final third can get bitter- something commonly seen in young Cuban cigars. I personally think the Dumas is a great long term aging candidate.
While the presentation and performance of this cigar are both stunning, the price tag increase to what you would expect. One can most definitely reasonably pay 350-500$ per box of 20 on the secondary market.
