Montecristo Pilotico Pepe Mendez is an unforgettable special addition to the Montecristo brand that commands attention. Nearly half a century ago, Jose "Pepe" Mendez discovered "El Cibao," a region in the Dominican Republic known for its rocky terrain and loamy soil, providing just the right drainage and high concentration of nutrients to grow the perfect tobacco. It was there he planted his prized Pilotico™ seeds. In tribute, Pepe's grandson, Siegfried Mendez, Tobacco Director at Jose Mendez & Co., replanted his grandfather's Pilotico in the Navarette region of the Dominican Republic, where the Mendez family has been growing in since the early 1960s. The overall result: Montecristo Pilotico Pepe Mendez. Pilotico's complex and robust smoke features an Ecuadorian Sumatra wrapper, Dominican binder, and both Nicaraguan and Dominican Pilotico filler.
