This is perhaps the most unique Montecristo ever released. Montecristo along with the famed Plasencia Family have collaborated to produce the Montecristo Espada. The collaboration between the Montecristo blending team and the Plasencia Family is known as the Grupo de Maestros. They have combined the knowledge of centuries, the expertise of growing superior tobacco and the art and passion of handcrafting the finest cigars. This is the first Montecristo comprised of 100% Nicaraguan leaf.
Meticulously harvested and made entirely of specially aged vintage tobaccos by the Plasencia Family, Montecristo Espada offers a rich, majestic, complex and deeply satisfying smoke.
The Montecristo Espada is beautifully packaged in a marvelous hazel suede-covered box of ten that screams elegance.
(Note: The Estoque is a limited edition size made with a darker wrapper)
