    Brazilian cigars are relatively unknown to many smokers and have never caught on in the American marketplace. A small company named Tobacos Mata Fina is aiming to change this trend with its Monte Pascoal line. Translated into English, Monte Pascoal means Easter Mountain. The company has a manufacturing workforce of 25 employees which allows an annual production of approximately 500,000 units. Tobacos Mata Fina blends each of the six vitolas in the Monte Pascoal line with a different ratio of Mata Fina and Mata Norde, creating stark differences in flavor between sizes. If that isn’t unique enough each box of cigars is stamped with two dates; the date the cigars were rolled and the date they were boxed.

    The Monte Pascoal Corona has a dark brown wrapper that is very dry in appearance with a sweet tobacco aroma. It is well rolled and is very uniform in both geometry and density. The band has a colorful image of the company logo with gold coins on either side.

    The Mata Fina leaf lends a very sweet character to the smoke but never becomes cloying. Flavors of spice and nuts dominate through a background of earth and wood. The moderate finish is sweet and earthy, alluding to a faint presence of chocolate. The Monte Pascoal maintains a medium body and strength throughout.

    The little-known corona burns for an hour before becoming warm and furnishes the smoker with a trouble free, relaxing experience. I would reach for this cigar again when I crave something unique. It’s a shame Brazilian tobacco is not more widely utilized as it is very unique and has quite a bit to offer even the most jaded palates.
