The pearl of Monte’s eye
Since its inception in Havana, Cuba, Montecristo has been pleasing palates across the world. Sure, it’s gone through a ton of different releases and looks throughout the years, but no matter what type of cigar bears the Montecristo name, you know they’re gonna be good. Today, we welcome one of the newest Connecticut releases from this historic brand, Montecristo Perlado.
Made in the style of Montecristo White Vintage, this Dominican handmade features a true Connecticut leaf up top. Underneath, you’ll find a mixture of Dominican and Nicaraguan long-fillers. The combination produces an exceptionally smooth blend that you won’t soon forget — toasted nuts join cream and slight spice in a pleasant and mellow profile that never overwhelms.
The true hidden gem
After the success of the new fan-favorite Romeo y Julieta Perlado and Montecristo Perlado, it was natural there’d be a successor to the throne. Today, we welcome that new cigar… sort of. Feast your eyes on the H. Upmann Perlado, a new blend that’s sure to get some attention. The bad news? This cigar was crafted in a single size, without boxes, meant to be used only for promotional purposes and special events. The good news? We got our hands on a ton of them, and in true CI fashion, we’re delivering them straight to the people.
Featuring a Sumatra Java wrapper leaf overtop US and Dominican fillers, this ultra-smooth Perlado comes in a little fuller than its brethren. Things never dip above a medium-bodied profile, though. The flavor is excellent, delivering a smooth sipper of a cigar that’s charming all the way down to the nub. In short, if you loved either of the last two Perlados, or just appreciate a good, Cuban-esque blend, you’ll find plenty more to love here.
