Montecristo 520 Overview

With a well-applied cap and a firm, consistent wrapper, the 520 is a cigar with a distinctive appearance. It provides a long smoke, lasting from an hour and a half to two hours. And wow, in those two hours there is so much to savor!

It’s not a cheap cigar and it’s increasing in price year on year. Mostly the Montecristo 520 is ideal for enthusiasts looking for a complex, unique stick with medium body and strength.

Smoking a Montecristo 520

The foot of this cigar smells of damp earth and coffee with an easy pre-draw. Once lit, baking spices and pepper present themselves until the first third finishes with a surprisingly salty aftertaste. 

The peppery, spicy flavors diminish in the middle third, with cedar and coffee becoming predominant in the lingering retrohale. The final third expands with a slightly bitter edge and a creamy mouthfeel.

Cigar Value

While the 502 features a higher price tag than most cigars from Cuba or anywhere else, the pure enjoyment of smoking a 502 is well worth the investment for a genuine cigar connoisseur. It was offered as a limited release in 2012 and there are no signs it will be released again. Aficionados should grab a box quickly to keep in the humidor.

Montecristo 520 Experience

A creamy, coffee-flavored cigar with notes of exotic spices and a salty, creamy aftertaste, the 520 is a beautiful addition to any humidor. A top of the line Montecristo, the 520 is a limited edition line that offers an unforgettable smoking experience.
