Montecristo Open Regata
Origin: Cuba
Strength: Medium
Ring Gauge: 46
Length: 5⅓”

Released as part of the 4-cigar ‘Open’ series in 2009, the Montecristo Regata could be described as a ‘petit Belicoso’ with a tad less length (5⅓”) and sleeker 46 ring gauge than a standard ‘Beli’. The Open series is a tad stronger than those in the Classic, Especial, or Edmundo series, and characterized by distinct woody and peppery notes that are generally minimal within the brand. Definitely worth a try for the Cuban connoisseur.




Brick House Mighty Mighty Natural
Origin: Nicaragua
Strength: Full
Ring Gauge: 60
Length: 6¼”

The Brick House brand of cigars tend to get great ratings in Cigar Aficionado magazine, and no wonder: the blend combination of specially aged Nicaraguan filler with a complex Havana wrapper leaf makes for a fine smoke indeed. Oh, and at 6 ¼” x 60, it’s fully satisfying in size as well. The all-Nicaraguan filler leaf makes for a nicely cohesive experience, and offers rich flavours like cedarwood, coffee, and toasted nut.
