The Montecristo 1935 Anniversary Nicaragua is gaining a new vitola as an exclusive for Casa de Montecristo’s retail stores and lounges. The 52 x 4 ½ size “Exclusivo” is available now.
This cigar was a great addition to the Epic line from Montecristo, maybe the best yet. I was a big fan of the Epic Craft Cured, a cigar that I thought went kind of under the radar. This is just as good as that or better. The flavors were harmonious and left me wanting more and more. I really dug the caramel sweetness combined with the on an off oak flavor. The burn and draw were perfect the whole time and just added to the great experience. I will be picking up some more of these for myself, I think you should too.

"This was a strong cigar from the very first puff and they had me a bit concerned. Thankfully, the strength gradually lessened and allowed me to enjoy the power and not overwhelm my palate. At the finish, this cigar was firmly in my wheelhouse and had me ready to light another. For an experienced smoker, I’d recommend this…for a rookie, I’d be cautious. Personally, I loved it!" -Jason H. (Jokey Smurf)
"I was leery about the first third, hoping it may have some complexity of this blend, however i was delightfully surprised bu the last two thirds. A menagerie of roasted and tasty charred flavors intermingling with sweet caramel and chocolate flavors made this end up being two thumbs up for me! Paired with flawless appearance, construction and burn made it all the better. Top notch med-full bodied smoke!" -John A. (Bostoneo)

Every year we put together a list of our Top 25 Cigars of the Year. Our list is a bit different from some other lists, it is not simply a rehashing of our top scores from the year, or one person's opinion. We gave each of our panelists 10 votes to cast how they please for what they enjoyed the most in 2019. The order of their votes matter, so their #1 pick is worth twice as much as #10. The cigars do not have to have been reviewed by Blind Man's Puff, but the panelist must have smoked it.
