Montecristo Espada Guard Cigar Review

This 6×50 stick features a dark brown buttery soft wrapper with a firm even pack, minimal veins, tight invisible seams, large double cap and faint wood aroma.  First light reveals a good draw with decent medium bodied smoke showing a nice sweet wood an the draw followed by a short general tobacco finish.  The first third develops the sweetness to a fleeting caramel joined by a deep earth on the draw.  The finish is long with a substantial pepper bite that holds to the next draw.  Burn is perfect with a razor sharp line, tight ash and great draw.  Hitting the 1/2 way point at 45 minutes the burn is very slow and perfect, keeping the same flavor profile.  Ending at 1:45  the last third just brought in a bit of strength to the mix matching the body at medium.

    Really enjoyed your thoughts about why you are in the garage doing you review. So very honest and true. Common sense!

    Thanks for that review BG! Really enjoyed your input on this stick that I’ve had my eye on for a while. Definitely going to be picking up a box soon. I called it on fb about a review in the near future when you posted the pic (while doing the review) lol. Keep up the fantastic work!

    What’s with the header at the top of the page blocking a portion of the video? It’s annoying enough that I stopped watching the review.

    • I have no idea what you are talking about and no one else have ever complained about anything like that.

        When I open CO the Cigar Obsession banner is large (estimating it’s about 2 inches wide) and comes down far enough to cut off the top of the video. To make that banner smaller (to where it’s about 1/2 an inch), I have to scroll down to a point where the top of the video is once again cut off.

        • You must be viewing on a very very tiny screen?

            Sorry about the delay. Zoom was on 125% so my old eyes can see better. Works if the zoom is reduced to 100%
