In the cigar world, few names are as synonymous with timeless prestige as Montecristo, and with such incredible new additions to the lineup as Montecristo Espada Oscuro Guard, the tradition not only continues, but evolves to fit the demands of a growing modern market. This example is the product of a collaboration between Montecristo’s Grupo de Maestros, Rafael Nodal, and the world famous Plasencia family, known for growing and curing some of the finest tobacco on the planet. Rolled by the skilled hands at Plasencia Cigars S.A. in Nicaragua, Espada Oscuro is an extremely high-end Nicaraguan puro, meaning every single leaf used in the construction of the cigar has its origin in Nicaragua. The wrapper leaf, unlike the original Espada blend, is a dark, heavily aged Habano Rosado Oscuro leaf harvested from the Plasencia farms and stocked away in the depths of the family “library,” only to recently be discovered and used for this exciting new brand. The cigar has certainly taken off, quickly earning a pair of 90 ratings in Cigar Aficionado and becoming a “must have” for Montecristo fans worldwide.

The amazing packaging proves the folks at Montecristo spared no expense. Black wooden chests adorned with gold lettering contain the gorgeous vitolas, each one bearing extensively decorated double bands boasting the unforgettable Montecristo flour-de-lis above the opulent Espada logo. As would be expected, the construction screams “Plasencia,” with a seamless roll and a very productive draw. Bold notes of oak and nuts open the experience, soon followed by black pepper, bread, and spice. Notes of citrus and coffee linger in the background, along with a solid earthy presence from beginning to end. The finish is long and sweet, yet creamy and clean at the same time. Just a notch below full-bodied, Espada Oscuro is a rich, balanced masterpiece of a modern cigar. The very popular Guard size is a 6” x 50 toro offering the truest version of Espada Oscuro’s rich flavor profile.

This blend is not for beginners. However, experienced connoisseurs will delight in the strength, complexity, and unrelenting satisfaction offered by Espada Oscuro. Resting on the very heavy side of Medium-full-bodied, it pairs well with bourbon or tawny port and makes an ideal celebration cigar. If you enjoyed the original Espada release, but also tend to veer towards such cigars as Plasencia Alma Fuerte, this is most definitely a stick to get your hands on. “Espada” is Spanish for “sword,” and Montecristo Espada Oscuro Guard is definitely on the cutting edge of ultra premium cigar innovation. Get yours today and experience the latest and greatest that Montecristo has to offer!
