Montecristo Pepe Mendez Pilotico

Montecristo Pepe Mendez Pilotico is a very special cigar that honors the history of collaboration between the Mendez family, a family of renowned tobacco farmers in the Dominican Republic for three generations, and Altadis U.S.A.'s Grupo de Maestros. It is said that Pepe Mendez brought tobacco seeds in his suitcase when he left Cuba in the 60s and established himself in Dominican Republic's fertile Cibao Valley. Those seeds have now given birth to the rare "Pilotico" tobacco, a leaf that provides rich, bold, and elegant flavors and is only available in this cigar. The wrapper is Ecuadorian, with a Dominican binder and fillers from Nicaragua and Dominican Republic. The cigars are packaged in beautiful, handcrafted suitcase boxes.

About: Montecristo Pepe Mendez Pilotico Toro 6"1/4 * 52
Now this is a great cigar, I must admit that I was drawn to the quality of the design of the label and box. The cigar is even better!

Good smoke but theee are better values about there. I probably won't buy another for that reason.
About: Montecristo Pepe Mendez Pilotico Toro 6"1/4 * 52
If you are looking for a smoke with a unique profile, medium body, and elegant presentation, this one is for you. Named after Jose "Don Pepe" Mendez, and carefully blended by the Grupo de Maestros, its pedigree is a force to be reckoned with. A gorgeous medium brown Ecuadorian Sumatra wrapper encases a Dominican binder and delicate blend of both Nicaraguan & Dominican fillers, including the rare Pilotico tobacco grown in the Cibao region, famous for its nutrient rich soil. Flavors of leather, caramel and nuts dance with subtle spicy notes of cinnamon and clove throughout this cigar. The spiciness seems to ratchet up a bit during the last third. Also noticeable is a slightly salty, citrus like retro-hale. Good construction with a medium draw. I can't find anything I do not like about this one, and I doubt you will either. Pairs well with cafe con leche, a decent single malt scotch, or even a nice smoked porter. Cheers.
