Montenegro President Gomez Series Aged 3 Years


5 1/2×55

Montenegro Cigars, a beacon of luxury in the cigar industry, exemplifies the ethos of quality over quantity. Founded by two Beverly Hills investment strategists with a passion for premium cigars, Montenegro stands apart with its commitment to aging and organic farming. With a minimum aging process of 5 years for all tobaccos, and most exceeding 7 years, Montenegro ensures that each cigar is a masterpiece of flavor and craftsmanship. The farm, renowned for being the only known organic tobacco farm in the industry, forgoes pesticides, embracing a natural approach under the guidance of famed Cuban farmer Hector Luis Prieto. This dedication to purity and excellence means Montenegro accepts higher crop losses for unparalleled quality.

The President Gomez Series, named after the Cuban revolutionary and president, is a testament to Montenegro’s commitment to exceptional cigars. Born in Sancti Spíritus, the home of the seed for this cigar’s wrapper, President Gomez was a figure of controversy and change, mirrored in the bold and revolutionary flavors of this series. This 5.5×55 cigar, despite its extensive aging, retains a juicy character, brimming with intense chocolate notes, making it possibly the most chocolatey cigar to date.

Body: A lush tapestry of milk chocolate syrup drenches the palate, setting a rich, indulgent tone from the outset.
Foot: An aroma of chocolate hazelnut wafts from the foot, enticing with its promise of depth and complexity.
Cold Draw: The unmistakable sweetness of Hershey’s chocolate syrup dominates the cold draw, offering a preview of the cigar’s dessert-like essence.

Tasting Notes: The first third challenges the senses to unravel its intricate blend, presenting a sensation rather than specific notes. A symphony of hazelnut, cinnamon simple syrup, cedar, and a hint of orange rind, married with white pepper and a creamy, red pepper-infused smoke, hints at vanilla undertones. This portion epitomizes the elusive perfect balance in cigar flavor profiles, where individual notes meld into a harmonious whole.

Transitioning into the second third, the profile explodes into a medley of chocolate-covered fruits. An undercurrent of white and red pepper, oak, and cedar adds structure to the lush, creamy smoke. Hazelnut and chocolate syrup enrich the fruity essence, showcasing Montenegro’s mastery of flavor integration.

The final third intensifies, with fruit, oak, cream, white pepper, and hazelnut leading the charge, accented by cocoa and occasional vanilla. The balance remains, though the flavors deepen and diversify. Despite occasional relighting, due to its juicy nature, the cigar delivers an unforgettable finish, bursting with flavor.

Pairing Notes: A rich, aged rum or a full-bodied coffee would complement the intense chocolate and fruit notes of this cigar, enhancing its complexity and the overall sensory experience. This pairing underscores the luxurious and revolutionary spirit of the President Gomez series, making each puff a celebration of Montenegro’s unparalleled dedication to the art of cigar making.
