**SAVE BIG ON MONTECRISTO ESPADA FOR THE NEXT 24 HOURS!**
I was excited to see a shipment of this cigar arrive for two reasons.
- I love having this smoke stocked up in my locker at my cigar lounge.
- The Montecristo Espada has earned a page in tobacco history. And makes a great story to share among friends...
...that’s because this cigar is made with 100% vintage Nicaraguan tobaccos distinctly aged by the Placencia family, and blended by the world renowned Grupo de Maestros.
This cigar is actually the brainchild of Montecristo’s blending team and the Plasencia family, the first ever collaboration of its kind! All in an effort to commemorate the tradition, honor, and power of the legendary Montecristo brand.
Even at pre-light, this stick has a royal look to it. An oily soft wrapper covers the Montecristo Espada, and a beautifully delicate band wraps the cigar, describing its origins.
This smoke burns beautifully with almost no touch-ups required. The draw is perfect, smooth and easy with a touch of resistance. (Just the way I like it!)
The Montecristo Espada is a true medium bodied cigar. The first third has a classic Nicaraguan spice flavor...although not as overpowering as some similar sticks. The second and final third open into a nice sweet smoke. It continues to build to the end, and finishes with a clean coffee flavor.
