A while ago, Montecristo had a collaboration of Altadis' master blenders develop a cigar called Montecristo Epic, which became a huge hit. Playing off that, they approached another master blender, Nestor Plasencia, to create a very special follow-up to Epic, and here it is - Montecristo Epic Craft Cured.
The first thing you'll notice is a very silky Nicaraguan 2006 Rosado Oscuro wrapper, but what makes this a "craft cured" cigar is that all the component tobaccos are bundled in palm bark to aged and mature the leaf, creating a richer and more complex flavor. You'll find notes of sweet wood, roasted nuts, leather, and baking spices, with a hint of salt. These medium to full-bodied gems come in limited quantity boxes of 10 cigars, so be one of the first to grab your Montecristo Epic Craft Cured. You'll be glad you did.
