Montecristo

As one of the most famous brands in the world, this Dominican version of the Montecristo has a golden Connecticut wrapper that encases a medium bodied blend of premium long filler tobaccos.

In old Cuba, it was common place for cigar rollers to be entertained with the reading from stories and books to break up what was typically a long day. One such story that was a favorite among the factory workers was the tale of the Count of Montecristo. Legend has it, that the reading of this story is what paved the way for the Montecristo brand. Relatively speaking, Montecristo is a newer brand, making its start in Cuba in 1935.

The Dominican version debuted in the United States in 1995, during the peak of the cigar boom. They are medium bodied with a moderate finish. As one of the most recognizable names in cigars, this newer Dominican version lives up the prestigious reputation set forth decades ago, combining an enticing aroma with flawless construction. This cigar is an icon in the cigar industry.
