Traditionally, Altadis has manufactured its Montecristo cigars in the Dominican Republic. Their 2014 release, Montecristo Espada, is their first Montecristo made in Nicaragua by the Plasencia Family. The cigar is made with especially aged tobaccos grown by Plasencia, and offers a rich and complex smoke. The Montecristo Espada wrapper is a Habano Jalapa Vintage 2010, binder is a Habano Jalapa Vintage 2009, and fillers are Habano Jalapa Seco, Habano Ometepe Viso and Habano Condega Ligero harvested in 2008.
Double Coronas are usually 6.75 to 8 inches long by a 49 to 54 ring.
This cigar is 7 inches long, or 177.8 mm.
Most cigars are manufactured in the Caribbean and Central America.
Cigar Ring Gauge
The cigar ring gauge corresponds to the diameter of a cigar, this cigar has a ring gauge of 56, so his diameter is 56/64 inches or 22.35 mm.
Cigar wrapper color varies from green (Double Claro or Candela) to black (Maduro or Oscuro) with a full range of browns in between.
Natural wrapper, also known as Colorado Claro, is light brown in color.
Handmade cigars are completely made by hand from start to finish.
The Plasencia family has been in the tobacco industry for six generations. With two factories located in Nicaragua, Nestor Plasencia Sr. grows and cures tobacco, and makes millions of cigars every year for renowned brands such as Rocky Patel and Gurkha.
The wrapper is the last tobacco leaf to be rolled on the cigar, so it is the one the smoker will see.
Nicaraguan cigar wrappers are produced mainly in Esteli and Jalapa, both lands with volcanic soil and excellent climate for growing tobacco. Wrappers grown in Jalapa have sweet undertones. Corojo, Habana2000, Criollo, and Maduro wrappers are all produced in Nicaragua.
The binder is a full tobacco leaf that is used to roll the cigar, binding the filler tobaccos together.
Filler is the term used to describe the tobacco inside a cigar or the "guts" of the cigar.

I was looking for a Montecristo with a little more punch and spice than more usual classic series. These were the right fit. Right out of the box the wrapper was nice and peppery. More suitable for those that like a stronger cigar profile. The draw on these are a little more tight than what Montecristo usually puts out. Still, a nice deviation from my usual classic series.
Let me tell you first I'm not a big Montecristo smoker, I was trying to find a MC that at least medium in body for me to enjoy. I have had mild MC a while ago and I liked the aroma just wanted more body/strength. The Espada appearance is stunning! Pre-light taste was very bitter, not peppery zing but just plain bitter. Unfortunately the bitterness stuck all first half of the cigar and then went down somewhat. With burn problems, had to touch up 3 times, (did keep it in the humi at least 2 weeks) not sure I'd come back to this cigar... But again, not a big MC smoker, so take this for what it's worth.
At first glance you notice the beautiful presentation from the multiple banded and oily wrapper that covers the Monte Cristo Espada. The Espada stands out due to its detailed bands which stand out from the actual cigar. The cigar has notes of leather, oak, and nutty flavors. The Espada has been beautifully constructed giving a smooth draw that'll please one's palatte. Through out my smoke session I had an even burn not needing to do any correcting. There weren't any cracks with the wrapper. This Espada had been sitting in my humidor for about a month at 75 RH. It was perfect for my liking not too soft. I would expect this cigar to age perfectly. I paired this fine cigar with an espresso and on the second trial with a glass of Glenlivet 12 scotch whiskey. The coffee brought its notes of cocoa and the whiskey amplified the nutmeg flavors. I look forward to another trial of the Mone Cristo Espada.
An excellent cigar..as is to be expected from Monte.
