Quillon I did not like this cigar at all I could not even get past the first quarter. Flavor was very strange I could not even place it. Reminded me of a “corked” bottle of wine. Good draw construction was nice just took it off of my wish list. 3 5 1
Quillon smoke these and fall inlove this cigars smoke so well and are so easy to enjoy 5 5 1
Quillon In general I have found Montes to be overrated and over priced. This cigar proves the point to me again. I have had much better smokes for half the price. The only positive that I have is that the draw was excellent. The burn and flavor just so-so. 3 5 1
Quillon A very good stick. Fuller bodied than most other Montes I've smoked. Draw and burn were very good. I'll definitely grab more of these! 4 5 1
Quillon We were down in San Diego in the gas lamp district. Went into a cigar shop and purchased one these Cigars. I loved it! Delicious flavor it smoked well good draw 4 5 1
Quillon Perfect size to showcase this blend. Wonderful flavor and construction is absolutely perfect. There is a reason it gets such high scores 5 5 1
Quillon The jallapa binder is delicious and pairs grait with a cup of coffe in the morning 4 5 1
Quillon Montecristo Espada never disappoints classic brand and great cigar ring and taste of the Padron cigars a really amazing 4 5 1
Quillon One of the highest quality cigars available. Great rich flavors and smooth transitions from note to note. If you haven't had this one yet go get one. 4 5 1
Quillon Really disappointed in this cigar. For its fancy labeling and heritage I would never buy another one 2 5 1
Quillon This is one of the best montecrisco has to offer. its very smooth and creamy and switches between leather and coca to me. 4 5 1
Quillon Very good cigar. One of the better Montecristo that I've had. Great smooth medium flavor with an easy draw. 4 5 1
Quillon Exquisite cigar. Well constructed with good burn. Exceptional flavors from start to finish. Well worth the price. 5 5 1
Quillon Tasty treat. Starts out nice lots of interesting and enjoyable flavors. Builds as you spend time with it. Stays nice but can be a bit strong as you get to the halfway point. I personally like the wood and coffee flavors. 4 5 1
Quillon Great cigar it that I save for special occasions. Excellent construction and flavor. Truly special 5 5 1
Quillon The Espada is an excellent cigar. Construction taste consistent and aromatic. All of which make a great cigar. 5 5 1
Quillon Spicy wrapper with creamy smoke makes this cigar by monte Cristo a great one. Good draw too 5 5 1
Quillon I could tell you about the earthy tones and the peppery taste from time to time but I would rather just say this is as great cigar! If you are not a Monte fan you still need to try this one. I keep these in that special part of my humidor. The Espada is my favorite early evening cigar! 5 5 1
Quillon You can never go wrong with a mont. nice cigar to sit back and have a nice cold one with. Play in a kickball leash and bought these for after every game we go to bar and smoke one. 5 5 1
Quillon Definitely worth every cent. Almost too cheap if you ask me. Perfect burn & flavors start to finish. If you're a Montecristo fan this is a must. 5 5 1
Quillon I know you're going to think I'm crazy but I'm not a Monte Cristo fan. but this cigar is an exception this is outstanding. absolutely amazing pick one up today if you haven't tried one you'll be glad you did. 5 5 1
Quillon This a fantastic cigar for the novice smoker. However once you’ve honed your tastes this quickly becomes a thing of the past. 5 5 1
Quillon This is a good cigar with great flavor. Burns Evan and is well made. No surprise as this brand makes many fine cigars. Worth a buy and trying 5 5 1

Quillon Great cigar. If you haven't tried this yet go get one. You won't regret it. I always have a box in my humidor. 4 5 1
Quillon Montecristo Espada is absolutely positively one of the absolute best cigars that Monte makes. These things are absolutely delicious. No doubt you'll enjoy this beautiful awesome cigar. 4 5 1
Quillon A nice change from classic Montes. Bolder with some spice. Great construction as you would expect. If you like Montes but are looking for something a little different give this a shot. 4 5 1
Quillon An inconsistent boring cigar that is overly blended and only give subtle washed out flavors. Don't waste your money 2 5 1
Quillon Good cigar. About what you would expect from this Monte line. Flavor and burn were fine. 4 5 1
Quillon The construction of the Montecristo Espada plays into my overall thoughts on the cigar. While the smoke had a nice woody profile and the last third was the most enjoyable. However the burn issues of the first two-thirds were just too much to overcome. I might give the cigar another chance from a different box but for now this is a cigar that I just can’t recommend. The only saving grace for me was the last third of the smoke. 3 5 1
Quillon Earthy creamy overall big flavors great enjoyable smoke. Enjoyed this one big draw and full of flavor great smoke 4 5 1
Quillon This is a great cigar im telling anyone this is a must buy for cigar smoker for sure 5 5 1
Quillon Another gift of the gods. This Monte has it all. From the time you fire it up to the finish the deep complex flavor is heavenly. The drawburnash and smoke is outstanding. 5 5 1
Quillon Very nice smoke this one is a keeper. This one is the first out of the box for me and just like any other Monte it is a great smoke. I typically smoke the white labels and found the construction draw and burn to be equally as good. I did find it just a tad bit harsh till it warmed up for me but after that it was a pleasure. One of the better box presentations for a smoke at this price and has the wow effect if you decided to gift these. 4 5 1
Quillon Great size and great cigar. This is medium to full flavored. It has a nice aroma and taste. 5 5 1
Quillon This one is like the rest. Good flavor even burn. Had a great flavor with a mild to medium flavor 5 5 1
Quillon The Espada line is right up there with my favorite lines from montecristo. Love those great glover notes we have come to expect from these guys with a little punch from the new wrapper . If you have the chance light one up! 5 5 1
Quillon A really great stick. I purchased a 5 pack of these and I can’t wait to smoke the others. 4 5 1
Quillon Quillon? Ok. It's a great cigar. Actually good anytime of the day. All my buddies enjoy them too. 5 5 1
Quillon love a creamy cigar with tons of smoke output, I recommend this cigar with coffee or bourbon late in the day, buy a whole box 4 5 1
Quillon The Quillon nice medium beginning third. Cocoa and leather. Smooth all the way thru. 5 5 1
Quillon Great cigar this one is definitely one of my favorites as it has a good flavor and smell too 5 5 1
Quillon Monte’ for my humidor is definitely a plus. This baby right here is a must try and a must have . Creamy, light spicy, smooth 💯 and plenty of flavor throughout. As expected 5 5 1
Quillon The Montecristo Espada Quillon have some really rich Aroma and a lot of good flavor 5 5 1
Quillon I have tried these! Like must of the Montecristo Espada, they are too strong for my enjoyment. For me they are good or better in all areas except strength. If given one I’ll smoke it, but to buy I need mellow to medium. 4 5 1
Quillon Good cigar. I recommend buy from jr like always. Good prices and shipping on all items with the cheap yearly membership 5 5 1
Quillon Fantastic cigar great draw full flavor awesome burnn will get again with out a doubt 5 5 1
Quillon I believe already posted a review for this one but I'll say it again as always no better smoke none more complex refined and enjoyable 5 5 1
Quillon I understand JR's parent company owns Monte and needs to rebrand it to a younger demographic, but fancy banding on a creamy, uninteresting cigar is not earthshaking. Well made, expensive, morning cigar made to be unveiled to impress golf buddies. 5 5 1
Quillon I usually smoke cheaper cigars but splurged on this. I very thankful that I did this. This will be my go to quality cigar. 5 5 1
Quillon I truly enjoyed this smoke. Full of flavor and easy full draw. Enjoy your experience!!! 5 5 1

Quillon Flavorful, consistently throughout. This one is a commitment but worth you taking your time to enjoy. By the end of the first third, really great earthy, leather notes, stays consistent, thick smoke, very nice mouthfeel. Great construction, only minor corrections to burn. Enjoy! 4 5 1

Quillon Anything by montecristco is good this is definitely one of their best. This fantastic smoke 5 5 1
Quillon I really enjoy this stick. Everything from the construction to the draw to the flavors to the experience is fantastic 4 5 1
Quillon Wonderful draw from this cigar. It pulls with great ease. It’s a lovely treat on a hot summers night by the fire. 5 5 1
Quillon It’s good but the ash is really flaky and the burn is uneven! A flaky ash cmon 5 5 1

Quillon Slow burn...amazing taste and definitely worth the money! The hints of leather and spice is nice. 4 5 1
Quillon I absolutely loved this cigar the taste is sublime throughout the entire smoke i will definitely buy again 5 5 1
Quillon After trying several darker cigars and realizing that they werent for me i went the route of more mild and i am glad i did. Smooth flavor throughout and great construction, ashed really nicely and burned nice and slow 5 5 1
Quillon My first impression of this cigar was a peppery, spicy, earthly flavor of coffee and cream . Very enjoyable smoke with a great burn and a great aroma. 4 5 1
Quillon Lots of smoke with hints of ginger and maybe a touch of cinnamon to give it a somewhat spicy flavor across the pallet. 5 5 1
Quillon Great addition to the montecristo line. Expected a delicious well made cigar and that’s what I got. 5 5 1
Quillon This is a cigar I smoke once in awhile when I'm having a late night out drinking some whiskey 3 5 1
Quillon So good I wanted to smoke the labels. Friend brought these in a similar size to golf and loved them. 5 5 1
Quillon Mmmmm. Montechristo delight. Another great offering from one of my favorites. Great draw, and construction. 5 5 1
Quillon Solid smoke as MOST Monte's are. 5 5 1
Quillon This is one of my favorite cigars. Smooth draw. Great flavor. 10 of 10 will always go back to this one. 5 5 1
Quillon Espada, the best way for me to do this justice would be to blow smoke out of my review. A lot of bang, espada means fire. 3 5 1
Quillon Ranked the #20 Cigar of 2015 by Cigar Aficionado eith a rating of 92. But do t just take thier word for it. This is an awesome smoke, probably my fave from Montecristo 5 5 1
Quillon The Montecristo Espada Quillon is one of my go to cigars when entertaining. One of my favorites in my collection. Solid flavor, draw, composition. Built to last. I truly enjoy this cigar. 5 5 1
Quillon the Espada was enjoyable from start to finish. A perfect draw, lead to notes of cedar and mild floral notes upfront and finishes with fresh earth and espresso. The burn was also consistent throughout, only have to touch up the cigar once (probably my fault when toasting, I was having a blast in the moment). 5 5 1
Quillon Espada quillian is a way of salutation made by people who have respect for each other's opinions and ideas about how the world works. This cigar embodies that spirit of galanti gigantes quillian..big hearted and generous with a solidified oaken finish. 5 5 1
Quillon Just like the rest of the series, absolutely excellent. I always keep a couple of these in the humidor. slight earth and espresso with a hint of natural sweetness. 5 5 1
Quillon I am a big monte fan. I usually enjoy all the different types, however, I was a little surprised when I had this one. I was a little indifferent with this one. It was just ok. I probably wouldn't buy it again. If I was offered it, I would take it, but I probably won't purchase it. 3 5 1
Quillon A bit heavily of a draw and not overly impressive. But I don’t necessarily hate the cigar. Bold flavor up front, bland in the middle and a bitter end. 3 5 1
Quillon Hello, I love this cigar. Classy I live the art display. Beautiful. And smokes super duper. Love it so kuchhhh. 3 5 1
Quillon Montecristo Espada is the first Montecristo line to made as a Nicaraguan puro. It is available in 3 sizes. This review is based on my first experience with the blend. 5 5 1
Quillon Yes never passed one up when you open a Box of actually a great buy will get you by. 5 5 1
Quillon This cigar really surprised me at how smooth it would be. From the draw to the finish, a quality smoke that burned consistently. Great find. 5 5 1
Quillon This smoke turned out to be an enigma, when I first slowly lit it, I had quite a bite. As I got into it it became much better. The only other complaint was a very coarse ash. Those things aside I enjoyed this cigar. Slightly toward the bold side, but mellow and smooth. I will probably buy it again, but I have had other cigars in this price range that seemed to burn a little better. Overall I was say it is a pretty good smoke. Wished I could say it was perfect. 4 5 1
Quillon The wrappers are all cracked, I assume from drying out. The little bovada pack included in the cigar box was completely dried out so I would guess these were not handled correctly somewhere along the line. 1 5 1
