Cigar News: Montecristo Announces Espada Oscuro

Cigar News: Montecristo Announces Espada Oscuro

Like the original Montecristo Espada, the Montecristo Espada Oscuro is a Nicaraguan Puro. However, in addition to the excellent Nicaraguan tobaccos used for the binder and filler it also includes an extremely rare and well-aged Habano Rosado Oscuro wrapper.

Team Cigar Review: Montecristo Dantés Edición Limitada 2016

The Montecristo Dantés Edición Limitada 2016 is not a Habanos I would gravitate to more often than not, I prefer regular production Montecristo offerings to this, but a very solid release. I would recommend this Habanos to those who have the opportunity to purchase some, and I think many would find that they smoke well in a couple years. I look forward to see how it smokes in years to come.

Team Cigar Review: Montecristo Nicaragua Series Toro

Team Cigar Review: Montecristo Nicaragua Series Toro

After the first third, the Montecristo Nicaragua Series Toro just became average and isn't something I'd search after. It's a cigar that might do well as the flavor and strength are what most smokers could enjoy, but I prefer a bit more complexity and enjoyment. Price is a bit high, but I'd say try one out and see what you think.

Personal Cigar Review: Montecristo Artisan Series Batch II

For me, the Montecristo Artisan Series Batch II is enjoyable and I would smoke more, but the price point is a bit of a deterrent. This is another nice cigar in the Montecristo portfolio which seems to be building a nice offering.

While I wouldn't call the Montecristo Ciudad de Música Robusto a true collaboration between blenders, it is a collaboration between brands and I would say it worked well. If you're a fan of Crowned Heads or E.P. Carrillo, it's a must try and this should be a good attraction for people to the Montecristo brand. This is a cigar well done.

The Montecristo Epic Craft Cured Toro was full of flavors that are straight to the point and focused. I typically am not all that excited to smoke a non-Cuban Montecristo (don't judge by the brand I know) but this one completely changed my perspective. Time to track down more of these.

Team Cigar Review: Monte by Montecristo AJ Fernandez Toro

Like many of AJ's offerings, I found the cigar profile to be good and construction to be top notch. I can say with confidence, Altadis USA made the right decision in partnering with AJ to create this traditional and beloved marca.
