Picks of the Month!
from the city's best tobacconist
So many new cigars! This month's feature selections are:~ Montecristo Espada ~ Montecristo & Plasencia, a match made in heaven. The story of Montecristo Espada is seriously interesting. Montecristo and Nestor Plasencia struck a deal. This deal would gave Montecristo's blending team, known as the 'Grupo de Maestros,' unrestricted access to Plasencia's world-renowned library of tobaccos & state-of-the-art factory. The Grupo de Maestro's went to work, spending months creating the perfect Nicagaruan blend. And the results are exceptional.
Meaning 'sword,' Espada makes full use of Plasencia's unique tobacco archive and employs a gorgeous Habano wrapper from 2010 grown in Jalapa, Nicaragua. Underneath, an all-Nicaraguan blend of bold, well-aged long-fillers from Jalapa, Ometepe, and Condega were each specifically selected for their strength, flavor, or body. The result is an extremely well-balanced smoke that's layered with rich, hearty notes of wood, pepper, coffee, cream, nuts, and sweetness. Elegant, refined, and loaded with delicious complexity, Montecristo Espada is truly a world-class cigar. Really.
~ The Big Payback ~ Matt Booth, a jeweler by trade, created the Room 101 cigar brand to compliment his silver accessory line of the same name. Room 101 quickly became popular with cigar smokers around the world. And as a thank you to his supporters, Matt Booth created this, The Big Payback cigar.
In a word, this commemorative cigar is big – big in size, body, and flavor. As a Nicaraguan Puro, it is spicy, but balanced by a savory combination of bitter coffee, inviting wood, and smooth leather. Early reviews delight in the even burn and a slightly milder, smooth taste. You'll enjoy straight through to the luxurious finish.
~ Edgar who?! ~ Edgar Hoill is a photographer who is known as one hell of a crackshot with a camera. Now, he & Christian Eiroa of Camacho fame combine muscle to present Edgar Hoill cigars.
To craft Edgar Hoill, is an all-Nicaraguan medley of rich, potent, patiently fermented tobaccos. On the outside a feisty Habano wrapper, chocolate-brown and teeming with natural oils. Just beneath, a robust long-filler core. Together, this ensemble wrangles up a meaty and bold profile loaded with spicy-sweet nuances. All sizes are full-bodied and all quite tasty.
