Description

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.

So different and interesting! Have had four from the same batch now, and all behaved the same. Reddish Corojo, slightly rough construction and slightly tight draw. Light up is anise, but only for a bit. Perfumy with noticeable key lime, citrusy green and sweet. So often reviewers say "citrus" in cigars, but these have genuinely delivered green citrus. Slight barnyard hay. Transitions to green, bright jalapeno. Seems to cry out for Mexican food/drink. Rough burn, frequent touch ups.

Very flavorful- the unlit draw and flavors are completely different than the lit flavors- smooth draw on a V cut and a good match to a cup of morning coffee

If I have $300 to blow these are the cigars I would always get. When I talk about my favorite cigar theses are it. So smooth and burns evenly with a great flavor.
