Selected by Cigar Aficionado as the 2015 #20 Cigar Of The Year – Rated 92

Montecristo is a brands synonymous with the cigar industry. Its reputation alone is enough to propel the cigar well into the future of the market, but Altadis is not content in using the name alone. The #20 Cigar Aficionado cigar of 2015, Montecristo Espada Quillon is the new blend that has a lot of first for this time-tested brand. Most notably this is the first Montecristo made in Nicaragua as well as the first collaboration with the famed the Placensia Family. This is not your grandfather’s Monte as it plays off the much stronger and fuller-bodied Nicaraguan tobaccos. With a 4-year aged Habano Jalapa Nicaraguan wrapper, a 5 year aged Habano Jalapa Nicaraguan binder, and aged Nicaraguan fillers from the Jalapa, Ometepe, and Condega growing regions, Montecristo Espada truly showcases the best of what Nicaragua has to offer.


Greeted with a slight variation of the classic Montecristo band and wrapped in both a foot band and secondary Espada band, as soon as you pick one of these up you know it is going to be a special smoke. A flawless mocha-hued wrapper greets your senses first but it is the amazing woodsy aroma that makes you want to take your first puff. With each draw your mouth will fill with tantalizing tastes of leather and spice with an astounding nutty finish. As you would expect from a name like Montecristo, construction with a smooth draw and razor-sharp burn.

When a name such as Montecristo teams up with one of the foremost respected Nicaraguan tobacco manufacturers like Plasencia, the cigar world needs to take notice. This is an amazing full-flavored smoke like nothing you have ever tasted out of Montecristo. Perfect for after a nice meal. Monte by Montecristo and the Montecristo Epic are also great different flavor profiles from this classic brand.
