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.

Handcrafted in Honduras at the Flor de Copan factory, this cigar was blended by the Grupo de Maestros of Altadis U.S.A., who have more than 250 years of combined experience in making great cigars. Some of the tobaccos used in this cigar have been aged up to 10 years. It is crafted with an Ecuadorian Habano wrapper, Nicaraguan binder and all Nicaraguan and Dominican Republic filler.

Team Cigar Review: Montecristo Cincuenta Toro

The Montecristo Cincuenta Toro was a really nice cigar to celebrate 50 years. I thought the flavor profile was enjoyable and I loved the transitioning that took place. It had depth as well and this is what I look for in a cigar. The only thing going against this cigar is the price, but it is a limited release and comes in an amazing humidor so that is understandable.

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

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.
