Montecristo is the best known and probably the most appreciated brand of Havanas throughout the world. It forms the benchmark for many Havana smokers against which other brands are judged.
The name comes from Alexandre Dumas’ famous novel ‘The Count Of Montecristo’ which was a firm favourite when read to the Torcedores (cigar rollers) at the factory where it was founded in 1935.
Montecristo’s perfectly balanced blends are created exclusively with selected binder and filler leaves from the Vuelta Abajo zone, home of the finest tobaccos in the world. Both its original medium to full taste and the lighter flavour found in the Open Series offer a distinguished aroma and appeal equally to new and experienced smokers.
