  • Montecristo Espada


    When this Cuban brand was launched in 1935, the world of Premium Cigars changed forever. Their #2 Torpedo became the world’s biggest selling cigar. I’ve had a few of them over the years and can honestly say they were ok. But that’s just me. Altadis acquired this iconic name decades ago and began producing many sizes and styles available to all of us.

    My Spanish lesson for today is : Espada means sword. This amazing edition began launching in 2014 and continued offering different sizes as it moved forward. When the Quillon size appeared in 2016 garnering a 92 rating and becoming one of the top 25 cigars of the year we all knew it was worth the price. The vintage Nicaraguan fillers from three prized growing regions and binder are encased in a very rare, aged wrapper from 2010. The result is a medium bodied purebred that is an interesting combination of sweetness and spice thats creamy and balanced.

    Filler – Colombian-Dominican-Nicaraguan
