Montecristo Espada Oscuro

Espada goes Oscuro.

A few years ago Montecristo’s famed blending team, the Grupo de Maestros, reached a deal with the Plasencia family of tobacco growers. The deal gave them unlimited access to all the Plasencia’s finest leaves, and the resulting cigar was known as the Montecristo Espada. The success of the original was so undeniable, the Grupo de Maestros once again scoured Plasencia’s stock to create a follow-up that ups the ante even on the first nearly-perfect blend: The Montecristo Espada Oscuro.

The Espada Oscuro replaces the 2010 Jalapa Habano wrapper with a vintage Habano Rosado Oscuro leaf, that’s several shades darker and a fair bit stronger. The all-Nicaraguan components work together to produce an intriguing mélange of complex flavors, and rich, peppery notes of earth and leather. Espada is Spanish for sword, and the Grupo de Maestros were razor-sharp when they blended this gem. If these end up as popular as the original Espada, you’ll want to grab a box today and strike while the iron’s hot.

Solid Flavor but difficult pull
The flavor of these cigars certainly lived up to my expectations. However, the pull was difficult and I actually had to use my draw tool. Additionally, I struggled to keep the burn uniform.

Geat smoke
Smooth and classic smoke. Worth every penny.
