Montecristo Cuban Cigars
Montecristo cigars were created in July 1935 and immediately becamea huge success. Until 1969 the Montecristo brand of cigars producedonly 5 different sizes, the No. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5. More sizes were added to the lineas demand grew and Montecristo was established. They have an amazinglystrong reputation. With a medium body, Montecristo Cuban cigars areperfect for any occasion.
Montecristo is the best known and probably the most appreciated brand of Habanos throughout the world. It forms the benchmark for many Habanos smokers against which other brands are judged.
The name comes from the hero of Alexandre Dumas' famous novel "The Count of Montecristo", which was a firm favourite amongst the Torcedores ( Cigar Makers) at the factory in Havana where it was founded in 1935.
Today the range, which was originally composed of a narrow assortment strictly numbered from 1 to 5, covers every level of the cigar enthusiasts' needs from the majestic Montecristo A to the tiny Joyita.
Montecristo's perfectly balanced blend is created exclusively with selected leaves from the Vuelta Abajo region, home of the finest tobaccos in the world. Its distinctive medium to full flavour and distinguished aroma appeal equally to both new and experienced smokers.
All Montecristo sizes are now and always have been "totalmente a mano, tripa larga" -totally hand made, long filler.
