Montenegro Cigars White Series Crucero
Introducing Montenegro Cigars. Vertically integrated, they grow, roll and import. Originally sold only in Beverly Hills in places like the Grand Havana Room, the brand decided to branch out and begin selling online. Here is the idea behind the brand. Ever wondered if some cigars were treated for flavor? Ever heard rumors that farms fermented tobaccos with coffee or rum, etc? Honestly I’ve heard it all. I’ve often wondered when tasting notes like tea or chocolate, how the tobacco could have been treated with these natural items to create a more deep flavor. Of course no one admits it if they do this. Well, now you get to see for certain, what pure natural tobacco tastes like. Think of Montenegro as the NATURAL cigar company. No additives, no flavors, no tricks. Not even pesticides. This is what the company stands behind. I, for one, love this concept. What an opportunity to know you are tasting pure tobacco, the way nature intended. The wine industry is beginning to see alot of this as well. Natural wines are pretty great. Try one if you get a chance. Now that you understand the brand message, can we talk about how great this shape/vitola is? When I first saw the cigar I knew I had to have it in the club. The issue was the price. How the heck am I supposed to tell a company that sells a cigar for $25-$40 (you heard me) that they should sell it to us for regular cigar prices? The entire box is that price! Honestly it took 1 year and 1 month but I finally convinced them. Their white label means the tobaccos are aged 5 years. This is another thing they firmly stand behind. Being that the tobacco is natural and naturally fermented, they have peak moments in time where the tobaccos change flavors. Typically this happens every 2-3 years. They feel that 5 years is the perfect timing, weather permitting. The cigars are then rolled and aged another 6-12 months. This means the tobacco in this cigar is about 6 years aged by the time we get it in our monthly boxes. I really think we should all take the time to thank @mspcigars or even email them at firstname.lastname@example.org and let them know how grateful we are for supporting the Privada movement.
