Is there anything AJ can’t do?
Messing with an old-school brand like Montecristo takes some serious cojones (that’s the technical term, I believe). I mean, you don’t mess with success, right? And Montecristo is more than successful. Luckily for us, ever since the folks behind Montecristo let AJ start tweaking with the brand and crafting new blends, it’s been hit after hit, and this newest collaboration is another notch in the “Win” column. Welcome, Montecristo Nicaragua.
The fifth addition to the ‘Core Line’ Montecristo, Nicaragua joins the ranks of White, Classic, Original, and Platinum. Big shoes to fill, no? Luckily, AJ does what he does best here, delivering a Nicaraguan powerhouse that’ll keep you coming back for more. 100% Nicaraguan tobaccos bring about a rich, flavorful profile, featuring plenty of classic Nicaraguan spice, backed by a characteristic sweetness that we can’t get enough of.
Good news! Montecristo Nicaragua has received an outstanding 93-point rating along with being named the #10 Cigar of the Year in 2018, noting: "A dark, woody cigar that unfolds dense, hearty layers of chocolate-covered coffee bean and dried fruit with every puff. Rich and balanced."
