Team Cigar Review: Montecristo Espada Signature Limited Edition Valiente

The Montecristo Espada Signature Limited Edition Valiente was a pleasure to smoke from first draw to the very last draw. Altadis USA made the right decision in going to Plasencia for this blend. A well balanced blend showing sweet and creamy toasted nuts, lots of great earthiness and well mannered minerals. Keep this collaboration coming!

Team Cigar Review: Montecristo Epic Vintage 12 Blue Toro

The Montecristo Epic Vintage 12 Blue Toro kept me interested and engaged through the first and second thirds, with at times intense flavors that managed to find a balance and harmonize. The last third was a bit of a disappointment with a largely wood driven profile that didn't offend, but didn't provide anything special

Team Cigar Review: Montecristo 1935 Anniversary Nicaragua No. 2

Typically, based on smoking experience, when I see another non-Cuban Montecristo, I assume an average experience. My assumption basically made an ass out of myself. The Montecristo 1935 Anniversary Nicaragua No. 2 was far from average, being quite complex with sweet Hawaiian bread, barnyard, herbal tea and baking spices for most of the smoking time (last third lost steam). I'll happily smoke more of these.

Team Cigar Review: Montecristo Espada Oscuro Guard

Like a lot of releases from 2019, the Montecristo Espada Oscuro Guard started out really well and slowly went downhill. A solid Montecristo, nothing to write home about, but a nice addition to a brand that already has way too many releases.
