The Montecristo Epic line has just released an exciting new line extension called the Montecristo Epic Vintage 12 cigars. The name refers to the vintage Dominican long filler tobaccos used in this extraordinary blend that was harvested in 2012. These prized vintage leaves are rolled inside a Nicaraguan binder and a rich, flawless Ecuadorian-seed Sumatra wrapper. Vintage 12 is offered in two sizes: Blue Toro (6 x 52,) and Blue No. 2 an old world 6 x 52 Torpedo. These top-of-the-line Monte’s are expertly rolled at the company’s famed Tabacalera de García factory in the Dominican Republic. Tabacalera de Garcia Product Development Manager Pedro Ventura, a member of the iconic Grupo de Maestros, stated: “ To create our Epic line, we select only the very best seeds and let them grow in our most exclusive soils until we have a crop worthy of the Epic name”. Medium bodied, and oozing with ultra-smooth flavors of cocoa, cinnamon, sweet spice, wood, and leather, its safe to say that Señor Ventura and the rest of his Grupo de Maestros really hit out of the park with this second Epic offering! The original Montecristo Epic received a well-deserved 91-rating, and Vintage 12 is destined for the same greatness.
