Montecristo Epic Craft Cured Toro is not your typical Montecristo cigar. As a matter of fact, it’s not a typical cigar, period! Unless you have been living under a rock since before cigars existed, you’re no doubt familiar with the Montecristo name. Further, it’s no secret that after the beloved original Dominican Montecristo came more than a dozen blends bearing the name, most of them Dominican as well. Then came Montecristo Epic, a bold edition to the brand utilizing Nicaraguan filler leaves. Fast forward nearly a decade, and Montecristo Epic Craft Cured is born, a phenomenal collaboration between Altadis USA and one of the biggest names in cigars, Nestor Plasencia. This blend not only includes Nicaraguan filler leaves from all 3 major growing regions, but a Nicaraguan binder and wrapper as well. The rolling happens at the massive Plasencia Cigars S.A. factory in Nicaragua. You read that right, a Montecristo that can be legitimately deemed a Nicaraguan puro! Further, all three component leaves undergo extensive curing in small basins called pilones prior to production. The result is an impeccably well-rounded flavor profile with immense balance and complexity. Don’t believe us? Maybe the prompt pair of 90 ratings in Cigar Aficionado will help convince you.


Bold packaging and loud labels set this blend apart from its subtly luxurious predecessors. Each vitola is expertly crafted and features a reddish brown wrapper leaf road-mapped with delicate veins. The draw is what most would consider to be ideal, lending to plenty of smoke production and a clean, sharp burn line. Massive notes of cedar and earthy raw tobacco greet the palate from first light, as hints of citrus and wheat join in soon after. A definitive nutty flavor is detectable throughout, as well as a mild burst of pepper here and there. The finish is clean and sweet, and the overall body is at the heavy end of medium-full. The 6” x 52 Toro is a beautiful vitola offering a lengthy, mellow smoking experience.


As was previously stated, this is not your typical Montecristo. Strong, rich, overflowing with flavor, and all the while beautifully balanced and smooth, Epic Craft Cured was made with the discriminating connoisseur in mind. Of course it pairs delightfully with scotch, bourbon, or cognac, but this may also be just the right cigar to choose when you finally decide to crack open that expensive bottle of craft beer you bought 3 months ago. While comparable to the original Montecristo Epic, this blend is more reminiscent of something like Plasencia Alma del Fuego or Aging Room Quattro. However your put it, there couldn’t be a more fitting name for such a phenomenal cigar as this. If you are a fan of unconventional ultra premium cigars and haven’t tried Montecristo Epic Craft Cured Toro, stop waiting and grab some, then thank us later.
