Two legends join forces.
Montecristo is one of the oldest and most recognizable cigar brands in existence, and the gold standard for cigar quality all over the world. AJ Fernandez is the king of Nicaraguan tobacco, and holder of countless awards and 90+ ratings. You would think that competition would be fierce between these two titans of the industry, but they have instead decided to work together, and bring us a cigar nothing short of extraordinary.
The blend born of this collaboration starts with a toothy Ecuador Sumatra Oscuro wrapper, covering a lush Mexican San Andres binder and long-fillers from Honduras and Nicaragua. Pressed into a candy-bar box-press, these sticks offer near-perfect construction and an excellent draw, and medium to full-bodied notes of black pepper, coffee beans, and umami. The heritage, passion, and expertise involved in this collaboration simply can’t be beat, so grab a box today and see for yourself.
