A firecracker of a smoke, the Montecristo Petit Edmundo is short, stout, and jam-packed with flavor. It’s less complex than its big brother, the full Edmondo, but just as satisfying. 

Montecristo Petit Edmundo Overview

The Petit Edmondo’s wrapper has a rich oily sheen, and with a short 4⅓ ” length and broad 52mm gauge, this cigar doesn’t disappoint. Cigar lovers can easily explain smoking a Petit Edmundo to a novice. The experience is like drinking a great red wine - you want to savor it slowly, but it’s just so complex and moorish.

Smoking a Montecristo Petit Edmundo

This is a thick, short cigar with an oily wrapper that shows a few blemishes. These only add to the stick’s charm. 

The medium tight roll makes for an open draw, and when you smell the Petit Edmundo before pre-light, it is reminiscent of sweet hay notes with a pinch of pepper. The pre-draw gives you a taste of what’s to come with distinctive hints of sweet tobacco present. Experienced smokers will recognise that the Montecristo Petit Edmundo is without the “Cuban funk,” a noted mustiness sometimes present in Cuban-rolled cigars.

After lighting up you’re hit with caramel as well as a touch of anise. After some of the spiciness dissipates in the second third, you can detect dark chocolate, which blends nicely with the cedary notes.

The Petit Edmundo isn’t rolled as tightly as its longer counterpart, the Edmundo, and the burn can sometimes get off-kilter halfway through, after about 15 to 20 minutes of burn-time. 

The Petit Edmundo peaks at about 25 minutes and rolls into the denouement, a sultry blend of potpourri and other floral notes.

Cigar Value

The Petit Edmundo ages well in a humidor with the aromas intensifying and becoming more complex as the cigar firms. Like all the Montecristo classics, the Petit Edmundo deserves to be savored and pairs very well with aged rums and after heavy fare.

Montecristo Petit Edmundo Experience

The Petit Edmundo’s short silhouette makes it look diminutive compared to the other sticks in the Montecristo lineup, but it packs a punch in terms of flavor. 

Although a quick smoke, the peppery caramel, and dark chocolate notes climb to a crescendo, mixing florals with cedar for a satisfying finish.
