MONTECRISTO

Montecristo

Montecristo is the most well-known and perhaps most popular Habanos brand in the world. It sets the standard according to which many Habanos enthusiasts evaluate other brands.

The name is a tribute to the famous novel “The Count of Monte Cristo” by Alexandre Dumas. This novel was very popular with the torcedores, when the reader read it out to them in the factory. This brand was launched in 1935.

Originally Montecristo had a small portfolio of cigars numbered No.1 to No.5. Today the wide product range offers everything the cigar smoker heart desires. In 2004, a cigar with a band size 52 was launched named Edmundo. This was prompted by the aficionados increasingly demanding larger band sizes. Two years later, a shorter version came out named the Petit Edmundo. Edmundo is the first name of Edmundo Dantes, the hero of Alexandre Dumas´ world-famous story.

In 2009, the new line Montecristo Open was launched with four different formats with a lighter taste than that of the classical Montecristo cigars. These cigars appealed to a new generation of aficionados.

The perfectly balanced Montecristo mixtures consist of select fillers and binders from the tobacco cultivation zone Vuelta Abajo, the home of the tobaccos which are some of the best in the world. Both the original Montecristo cigars with their medium strong to strong taste as also the cigars from the range Montecristo Open with their lighter taste address new and experienced smokers equally.

All formats are tripa larga, totalmente a mano – long fillers completely manufactured by hand.
