Montecristo Pepe Mendez Pilotico cigars feature a rare strain of Dominican-grown tobacco developed and cultivated by famed Cuban exile tobacco grower, José "Don Pepe" Mendez, along with Altadis U.S.A's Grupo de Maestros in 2015. Named for both this intensely flavorful leaf and Don Pepe, himself, the blend consists of Nicaraguan & Dominican Pilotico fillers framed by a Dominican binder, and flawlessly rolled in an Ecuadorian Sumatra wrapper. The smoke is full-flavored, ultra-smooth, and offers a complexity that defies description. If you're an experienced cigar smoker, you'll notice the unique flavor profile immediately, which includes an amalgam of sweetness, spice, leather, and toasted almonds. But even that doesn't do it justice.
Montecristo Pepe Mendez Pilotico cigars are made in three shapes with attractive double bands, and presented in wooden humidor boxes, which alone are collector's pieces, fashioned with leather straps and a leather handle. In a word: Phenomenal! If you're looking for the ultimate in luxury cigar enjoyment, make these Montecristo Pilotico cigars a part of your prized collection.
