Pro cigars also states the following:
Montecristo Le Cigare des Arts Belicoso Larga: The Figurado received 86 POINTS from Cigar Aficionado. It is 7" long and has a 52 ring. This big pyramid is quite well made, but the burn is a little to hot. The Belicoso Larga begins sour but recovers with black pepper, spice and leather notes developing. Although the Belicoso Larga Figurado beginning leaves room for improvement it ends well with a touch of spice. Body: Medium to Full
