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 when read by the Lector to the Torcedores (cigar makers) at the factory where it was founded in 1935.

The original Montecristo range of sizes was composed of a narrow assortment numbered from 1 to 5. Today it consists of a wide variety of vitolas to cover every level of the cigar enthusiast’s needs. In 2004 the 52 ring gauge Edmundo size was introduced in recognition of the trend for heavy gauge sizes, and a shorter version, the Petit Edmundo, followed two years later. Why Edmundo? It is the first name of Edmundo Dantes, the hero of Dumas’ novel.

2009 saw the introduction of a new Series, Montecristo Open, consisting of four sizes blended to a lighter flavour than other sizes in Montecristo’s range and aimed at a new generation of smokers, who enjoy the pleasures of outdoor pursuits.

Montecristo’s perfectly balanced blends are created exclusively with selected filler and binder leaves from the Vuelta Abajo zone, home of the finest tobaccos in the world. Both its original medium to full taste and medium flavour found in the Open Series offer a distinguished aroma and appeal equally to new and experienced smokers.

All sizes are Tripa larga , Totalmente a Mano  – long filler, totally hand made.

    Though I occasionally encountered a dud, most of these were creamy and tasty with notes of milk chocolate. A tip I’d recommend when smoking these is to draw on them gently to keep them from burning too hot. I found that the flavours were lost when drawing too deeply. All in all, for the price, these are very moreish.

    Great smoke when you don’t have a lot of time. Never disappoints but you have to draw gently lest it gets hot and tasteless. Good 15 minute treat.

    When you consider the price, flavour, construction, and consistency, these things are amazing.

    I tend to take it really slow on cigars and these things are just perfect for that. Not too small, not too large, great construction and good draw, not to mention a great price, and great service from this company! I do recommend!

    Great tasty little cigar. Burns hot unless you draw light, but it’ll reward you with some amazing flavors. Thoroughly recommended.
