Montecristo Pilotico Pepe Mendez

Pepe who!?

Montecristo. Groupo de Maestros. Though it may sound like an off-beat Spanish boy band, the Groupo de Maestros is the name of the blending geniuses behind many of Montecristo’s best blends. Combining for hundreds of years of tobacco experience, the Groupo de Maestros are more than capable of delivering a mind-alteringly good blend, and the Cuban-esque Pilotico really drives that point home.

Handmade in Nicaragua, the Montecristo Pilotico Pepe Mendez honors a man who changed the world of tobacco twice-over. You may have not heard his name, but Pepe Mendez is responsible for getting better consistency and cleaner flavors out of tobacco for years. An Ecuadorian Sumatra wrapper brings around leather, caramel, and walnut. While it does come with a high-price tag, Pilotico Pepe Mendez is one of the best releases this year, and I highly recommend you grab some for a special occasion.

Beautiful
Like many things these days, we tend to like in-your-face bombastics. This is not that and it’s refreshing! Some reviews basically complain about a “ho-hum” cigar but I find the flavors melded perfectly. Delicious medium smooth complexity in a perfectly burning, one-light, delightful stick! Medium strength. Humidored 3 months.

Save your money
These felt like a budget cigar with a name brand on them. Burned hot and uneven. Outer wrap peeled while smoking.

Good, but not great.
Decent cigar, But not a great value. The Montecristo name. I would not recommend. Will give mine away as fishing cigars.

Another excellent Montecristo
Great smoke; smooth, clean, even and great flavor. Good enough for special occasions, but I think I'll be slipping these into my regular rotation.

Awesome Monte
I don’t have a bunch of tasting notes or description but I can tell you that this was the best recent Montecristo tastings including the new epic. All the epic was not so epic this Cigaro was outstanding medium bodied very smooth very flavorful and Rich. Highly recommended!

Monte Pepe Mendez
This is an excellent cigar. It has everything one expects in a Montecristo; great construction,beautiful wrapper,perfect draw. Cool smoke with an easy retrohale,with just the right touch of leather. The only problem is the price. I got these on sale and will buy again, if on sale. For the regular price I’ll buy Opus X or Padron 1926. Still, it’s a fine cigar.

Great buy!!
I bought these simply because it sounded like a deal. What a surprise! These have beeen excellent, probably the cigar in my humidor that I look forward to the most. The smooth delivery beginning to end, coupled with the great taste make these a mental vacation every time I light one up. I would recommend these to anyone looking for a top-notch smoking experience.

Pepe Mendez Toro
Good flavors. However, three separate batches way too moist, even after a month in the humidor. Very disappointed in an otherwise expensive cigar.

This is a very nice cigar, the low price does not reflect its quality.

Very Epic Smoke
This was one of the best cigars I have smoked to-date. I’d place it right up there with the 96-rated Oliva Serie V Melanio.

Great tasting cigar!!!
I'm an occasional cigar smoker and like to try different smokes, after the first one or two draws I knew this was a great tasting smoke. Its tasted lasted throughout the burn, the only drawback was it was it was a harder draw than normal and needed a couple of relights (but I tried it on the golf course) but the flavor could not be beat. I will savor the remaining order for special smokes.

A very nice cigar
A very nice cigar, a strong medium with an even burn and very good construction, which I have not always found in Montecristos over the past 15 years, despite being a favorite cigar brand of mine. This is a departure from their original and milder cigars. I would describe it as more "modern" in its taste and notes. It is both appealing looking and tastes consistent throughout. An very upscale golf cigar that is a nice change. I would recommend you try it, for sure.

Another Monte winner!
I never hesitated when offered a chance to buy these excellent cigars from a favorite brand at a special price. To me, these cigars are among the best from a legendary brand. To date, they are possibly eclipsed only by the spectacular Espada for premium flavor offered by this line. (Now to just get some Espadas at this price!)

Ho hum
Draw is too tight so I had to shove rods through them to get adequate smoke output. Flavors are boring. Nothing horrible about them but they're unmemorable, unremarkable and unsatisfying. They merely exist.

pretty good!
I've smoked 3 of these cigars so far. High quality cigar from construction to draw to flavor. Very smooth! If you got the bucks,,they have the cigar!

No impressed.
Agree with the tight draw. The first 3rd I had to draw 3-4 times to get any smoke out of it. Put it out halfway through. Would not purchase again.....seriously disappointed considering the price.
