The Montecristo Espada line was introduced to the market in 2014, and it was the first Montecristo made entirely of Nicaraguan tobacco in collaboration with the Plasencia family. Altadis has teamed up with the Plasencias once more for the Monecristo Espada Oscuro, a Habano Rosado Oscuro cigar with a dark Nicaraguan wrapper. The new Montecristo Espada Oscuro is made with the same tobaccos as the original release, with the exception of the dark, oscuro wrapper. Rafael Nodal collaborated with Pedro Ventura, the head of Altadis' Grupo de Maestros, a select group of industry experts within the company, and Nestor Andrés Plasencia, who manufactures the cigar in Nicaragua and supplied the tobacco. Despite being a full-bodied smoke, the cigars are extremely rich and complex.
