close to smokable upon arrival. 48-72 hour sit, then they were ready to go.

Montecristo used the same approach with the Espada as it did with the Epic. Blended by the "Grupo de Maestros" and the Placencia Family, it is a work of beauty! For starters, this is the most handsome cigar box I have ever seen. The cigar presentation with deluxe banding makes you want to just look at it for hours. When you do sit to smoke it, just sit back and relax. It has just a bit of an acidic start, but evens quickly, great aroma, large smoke plume and even draw throughout. When the Epics are no longer available, this will be my sacred smoke!
