Loaded to the hilt with flavor.
Montecristo Espada was the result a collaboration between Montecristo’s blending team, the Grupo de Maestros, and Nestor Plasencia. The blending team was given full access to Plasencia’s legendary tobacco library and his state of the art cigar factory resulting in the phenomenal Montecristo Espada cigar. Plasencia and Montecristo have again joined forces to bring a new extension to the Espada line, the Estoque, which takes its name from the special sword used by Spanish bullfighters..
Montecristo Espada Estoque features a wealth of rare and vintage tobaccos, and is a full-bodied gem packed with succulent flavors and complexity. Coming dressed in an upper priming 2013 Nicaraguan Cuban-seed viso Jalapa wrapper sitting atop a 2002 Nicaraguan Corojo seco Jalapa binder, and 2009 Nicaraguan Corojo seco Esteli, 2013 Nicaraguan Criollo viso Ometepe, and 2013 Nicaraguan Criollo viso Condega long-fillers. This is a special, super-premium cigar best reserved for those moments when you can take your time and allow the blend to fully envelope you.
Good news! Montecristo Espada Estoque has received a well deserved 91-point rating, noting: "A dark and picture-perfect torpedo with a notably pointy tip. Light notes of wood and black tea become heavier with caramel, cocoa and a warm toasty finish."
