Montecristo Espada

Montecristo and Plasencia, a match made in heaven.

The story of Montecristo Espada is seriously interesting. Not long ago, Montecristo and famed tobacco grower and cigar maker Nestor Plasencia struck a deal. This deal would gave Montecristo’s blending team, known as the ‘Grupo de Maestros,’ unrestricted access to Plasencia’s world-renowned library of tobaccos and state of the art factory. There, the Grupo de Maestro’s went to work, spending months creating the perfect blend. A blend that’s unlike any other Montecristo ever before. A Nicaraguan puro that’s overflowing with flavor. A cigar that’s as near perfect as they come. A cigar that’s easily fitting of the Montecristo name, but with a level of flavor that’s surprising and welcomed. In short, Montecristo Espada is exceptional.

Meaning ‘sword,’ Espada makes full use of Plasencia’s unique tobacco archive and employs a gorgeous Habano wrapper from 2010 grown in Jalapa, Nicaragua. Underneath, an all-Nicaraguan blend of bold, well-aged long-fillers from Jalapa, Ometepe, and Condega were each specifically selected for their strength, flavor, or body. The result is an extremely well-balanced, layered with rich, hearty notes of wood, pepper, coffee, cream, nuts, and sweetness. Elegant, refined, and loaded with complexity, Montecristo Espada is truly a world-class cigar.

Montecristo Espada received Top 25 honors for 2015 (#20 overall) and a well-deserved 92-rating noting: " offering the spice of a gingersnap with touches of cinnamon that build to a sweet, spicy finish."

So far So good 😁
I have had two of these so far with no issues. I feel that they start out nice and smooth. They are not too mild, but nice. I kept looking at it and saying this is nice.

Great smoke every time
Even and consistent great smoke; great taste, long ash construction perfect. Only flaw is getting off the wrappers. I light it then forget about as enjoy the cigar and the current moment. I have high expectations for the Monti’s and this one met all expectations. Great smoke every time.

My new Go To!
Love these Montecristo Espada is a fantastic smoke! I evicted several other choices from my humidor when I started smoking the Espada, and decided to make it my primary cigar. My all-time favorite is the Partagas Serie D No. 4, but since I cannot get those in the US, this Montecristo has taken it's spot. Thanks for the great deal CI!

Great smoke -
As with most Montes this one tastes great and provides a nice break at the end of my day. Burns a little erratically, but worth the effort to keep it going.

Smooth
So for a full bodied cigar this is very creamy with a peppery finish. Its a high end cigar without the Pardron price tag.

Creamy Dreamy Delight
.... ok, this one of the best cigars I have ever tasted! ... no burn on the tongue, no bite in the aftertaste... just smooth as silk creamy, dreamy, coco and nutty flavor. There is no back end burning flavor... there was some speration of the wrapper and a small run in the leaf... it does not hinder the experience of this fantastic cigar... and this was just my first try of Espada. This is a must try for everyone, you will not be disappointed. The wrapper is awesome, even if it runs a bit. Super good! Yummo! Best monte yet. I will state that in my opinion, it’s better than the AJ. I still have to try the Pepe Mendez. The 93 rated Monte is not better than this creamy dreamy cigar. The Espada is my favorite... a bit high dollar, but worth it. Please try this smokie.

Espada
This is a great cigar with an abundance of rich flavor and smooth to smoke. The burn is even and the draw is light, a favorite with our N.W. Florida Back Porch Boys cigar club. Our rating would be higher if you had a higher number!

Love these sticks
First they come in a nice box for the collection. I admit to being a Monte fan. That aside, these cigars live up to the brands reputation for taste and quality. The flavor profile mentioned above is spot on. I can't recommend these enough is for looking for a medium-full smoke that is deep and not totally dark.

Must Try!
Hand down a great cigar. Very rich, creamy, flavorful and packs a nice punch. Perfect draw and burn, great outdoor smoke and will have you feeling very mellow after. You'll want to sit and enjoy this, and don't plan to do anything afterwords.

Worth the price
Good draw and burn. Starts off with a bit of a peppery kick, while not as in-your-face as other Nicaraguan sticks. Mellows out with notes of leather, espresso and a hint of cocoa. Great right out of the box, but try to restrain yourself and let a few age. Like the price, the investment of time is worth the wait.

A rockstar of a blend!
This is truly a special cigar. At first glance the appearance is very impressive at 56 ring and 7" long. Very nice wrapper, elegant box. I think the bands are excessive but still very nice. The texture of the roll is supple, with an oily wrapper and beautiful sheen. The draw is effortless, with the first phase burning a light blue smoke. It has complex flavor but very mild strength. It held a 3/4" ash at first light with very mellow blend of flavors. It is a great value for the quality of the smoke. I highly recommend this offering from Montecristo!

I can not get a good draw on some of the cigars that you sent even though I cut the end wider and wider to accommodate more air.

Customer Testimonials
Takes the sweet spot of a Cuban Montecristo, ramps it up to 11 and spreads it over the whole cigar! The experience opens with a flavor and strength somewhere between their Classic and Platinum lines with some good spice and a bit of a raisiny flavor. Part way through 1/3, that raisin taste is joined by a delicious sweet cream, almost vanilla. That flavor is what I'd referred to as very similar to the best part of a Cuban Monte but more of it! Things trade off between those flavors until it's own sweet spot where the two flavors marry and this becomes something really special. It's like berries and cream, but subtler, just enough to really get a good taste but not the syrupy sweetness of an infused cigar and combined with that typically delicious Monte tobacco flavor. Construction wise, I did have to relight after asking twice and there was a crack in the wrapper, no idea when that happened, but nothing unravels or flakes and it looks just as terrific as any Monte. The draw is absolutely perfect and produces a CONSTANT stream of smoke which I love! Monte fans should go ahead and buy a box! When I have the means, I know I will!
