  • Montecristo White

    $124.78$469.68

    Montecristo White is one of this long storied company’s most popular cigars.

    When this White banded edition appeared in 2017, an entirely new group of smokers discovered this brand for the first time. Many of those folks that gravitated to mild to mellow tasting cigars now had a Montecristo to call their own. The addition of tamer Nicaraguan fillers with Dominican leaves and encasing it with an Ecuadorian grown Connecticut seed wrapper yields a smooth, lighter smoke with a tiny bit of crispy spice that’s enjoyable for everyone.

    There was no doubt this cigar was a hit as the accolades poured in. When Blind Man’s Puff rated it at 94, they said it best. “Excellent smoke! One of the best mild-medium smoked I have ever had the pleasure of enjoying. The rich buttery and vanilla notes that were the backbone of this cigar were thoroughly enjoyable. Only smoke this cigar when you have the time to sit back, relax, and savor a truly high quality cigar. ”

    Country of Origin: Dominican Republic
    Wrapper: Ecuadorian Connecticut Shade
    Binder: Nicaraguan

  • Montecristo Espada Oscuro

    $136.88$150.70

    Montecristo Espada Oscuro is one of the very special cigars by this iconic company.

    With attention to detail, the Espada Oscuro is another collaboration with the Plasencia family. As with the original, this blend is pure Nicaraguan. The big difference here is this edition uses a Habano Rosado Oscuro wrapper instead of the original blend’s Nicaraguan Habano. What’s more important is the filler and binder tobacco is extremely rare. To say the least, this is a long burning medium to full bodied smoke with a very nice, flavorful progression from start to finish.

    With this in mind, Cigar Coop rates it at 90 and Blind Man’s Puff gives it a very respectable 93! So if you’re a Montecristo fan and liked the first Espada, this Oscuro is a must try for sure!

    Country of Origin: Nicaragua

To say the least, this dark, box pressed cigar is perfectly made with an exceptional draw.

    When renowned industry reviewer Katman rated it at 95, his description of this flavor bomb is spot on. ” This may just be the maltiest blend I’ve smoked.

    $58.00$157.75

    Without doubt, Montecristo Espada is one of this iconic company’s best cigars ever!

    The Spanish lesson for today is: Espada means sword. When the Espada appeared garnering a 92 rating and becoming one of the top 25 cigars of the year we all knew it was worth the price. What must be remembered is Espada is made in Nicaragua at Plasencia Cigars and is a collaboration between Plasencia and the Altadis blending team, Grupo de Maestros.

Cigar Aficionado describes this amazing smoke perfectly. “An exceptional smoke offering the spice of a gingersnap with touches of cinnamon that build to a sweet, spicy finish.”

  • Montecristo Pilotico

    $74.00$352.00

    Montecristo Pilotico is a very special edition from this long storied brand.

    This 2017 creation has an interesting heritage. It turns out that around 50 years ago, Jose Pepe Mendez came upon a region in the Dominican Republic that proved to be perfect for growing tobacco leaves. It was here where he planted what is known as his Pilotico seeds. As time passed he also gained a reputation for establishing many growing techniques and grading guidelines that still exist today in the industry. The master blenders of Montecristo decided to pay homage to Mendez and his seeds by creating this three country blend that yields a sweet kind of medium bodied taste.

    To put in another way, Blind Man’s Puff rated this one at 90. Cigar Coop gave it a 91. Without doubt, Pilotico is a must try for aficionados everywhere!
