Flavor has a new name, and it is the Montecristo Epic Craft Cured. Thanks to the long-forgotten, arduous, time-consuming method of curing the tobaccos, the wrapper, binder, and filler tobaccos produce flavors that are deeper and richer than traditionally cured leaves.
The Montecristo Epic Craft Cured received an impressive rating of 90 in the October 2018 edition of Cigar Aficionado Magazine!
The unique curing process used in the Montecristo Epic Craft Cured cigars also allow the choice of tobaccos to harmoniously blend in a symphony of flavors that are unlike anything else on the market. Handcrafted by the legendary Plasencia family in their Nicaraguan factory, the blend of Esteli, Jalapa, Condega, Ometepe and 2006 Rosado Oscuro Nicaraguan tobaccos are aged for a minimum of 10 years. It uses a uniquely small Pilon fermentation technique, enhancing more harmonious marrying of flavors.
This is a very full flavored cigar that begins as a medium bodied smoke and evolves to a full bodied stogie which is quiet enjoyable. You can feel and sense the meticulous details they put in constructing the Epic Craft Cured, when you receive one of these beautifully packaged rustic wooden box that comes sealed with an authentic warranty seal and Candle wax stamp to showcase the pride and diligence put into every piece.
Designed for serious cigar smokers, this flavorful smoke imparts a balanced array of warm spices, cocoa, nuts, and coffee nuances. The flavors are evident in every draw from this beautifully crafted cigar.
