This Geek Critique has been generously sponsored by 05Venturer (Kent)

The Cigar: Montecristo Pilotico Pepe Mendez Toro (6.2 x 52)

The Specs:

Country of Origin: Nicaragua
Wrapper: Ecuadorian Sumatra
Binder: Dominican
Filler: Nicaraguan, Dominican

The Hype:

Montecristo. Groupo de Maestros. Though it may sound like an off-beat Spanish boy band, the Groupo de Maestros is the name of the blending geniuses behind many of Montecristo’s best blends. Combining for hundreds of years of tobacco experience, the Groupo de Maestros are more than capable of delivering a mind-alteringly good blend, and the Cuban-esque Pilotico really drives that point home.

Handmade in Nicaragua, the Montecristo Pilotico Pepe Mendez honors a man who changed the world of tobacco twice-over. You may have not heard his name, but Pepe Mendez is responsible for getting better consistency and cleaner flavors out of tobacco for years. An Ecuadorian Sumatra wrapper brings around leather, caramel, and walnut. While it does come with a high-price tag, Pilotico Pepe Mendez is one of the best releases this year, and I highly recommend you grab some for a special occasion.

Due Date: February 25th., 2017

The Reviewers:

Active members only please. Reviewers cannot have done a geek critique in January or February 2018 or be scheduled for one in April 2018.
Three Veterans and two Newbs will be chosen via a random number generator.

Shipping Restrictions: To be determined

1. shakinghorizons (Colin)
2. bstessl (Brian)
3. Deener27 (David)
4. freakydeakydutchman (Steve)
5. McBryde (Emerson)

Note: A reviewer who posts their review late will receive neutral feedback. A reviewer who does not post at all will receive negative feedback. There are always exceptions to the rule and a reasonable excuse for tardiness or a no show will be respected and thus not counted against the reviewer. Our sponsoring members and our administrators make the choice of who is to participate in any particular Geek Critique and can be better informed of their choices with this initiative in place.

Thanks again to Kent for taking this one on and providing the cigar. THANKS!! And happy smokin'

I will give everyone about a week to put their name in this thread to be considered.
Then will do 2 random number generators, 1 for Vets or better and one for those below veteran status.
( FYI, the OP should read 3 vets and 2 newbs, not 3 of each)
Let me know in this thread if you are interested.

I was thinking the same thing. I'm with Brian...would love to have an opportunity for an early year critique. I'd be in if not selected for April.

For those on the fence about the March/April GC lotto's, If you make it into Kent's March review, in all fairness you will not be eligible for the April review. Hey, it is a lotto so chances are good for one or the other and good luck to all of you

With my luck, I would get skunked on both

I just enjoy cigars and being incredibly critical of everything. So this just melds those into a neat little package.
