Montecristo is one of the most hallowed and recognized names in the world of premium cigars. The brand was created in Cuba in 1935, and the name for the brand was inspired by the Alexandre Dumas novel “The Count of Monte Cristo.” Legend has it this was a popular choice for the lectors in the factory to read to the torcedores on the factory floor. When the Cuban government nationalized the brand in 1960, the brand’s owners fled Cuba and eventually recreated the brand in the Dominican Republic for the American market. They skirted international trademark law by creating the brand for the US, as we still do not recognize Cuban trademarks here. This new Montecristo brand quickly established itself with US Consumers as a top tier cigar and continues to dominate the market today through a wealth of marks bearing the Montecristo name.

The Montecristo Classic Series is a surprisingly flavorful blend that delivers more than one would expect from this blend on paper. It begins with a blend of well-aged Dominican filler and binder tobaccos. Topping this unassuming blend is a top quality, USA-grown Connecticut Shade wrapper that is golden brown in color and simply beautiful. This special blend features tasting notes of cedar, earth and pepper with hints of nuts and cinnamon. This Montecristo blend is captivating and will leave you wondering what other Montecristo blends deserve your attention.
