Montecristo cigars were created in July 1935 and immediately became a huge success. Until 1969 the Montecristo brand of cigars produced only 5 different sizes, the No. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5. More sizes were added to the line as demand grew and Montecristo was established. With a medium body, these Cuban cigars are perfect 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 Purito.
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 – with the exception of the Puritos – are “totalmente a mano, tripa larga” – totally hand made, long filler.
