Montecristo

Montecristo is undoubtedly one of the most famous cigar brands in the world, so much so, that roughly half the cigars exported from Cuba in any (normal) year bear it's quite simple brown, white and gold label. A number of the very well known Cuban brands can trace their histories all the way back to the 1840's, but it was only in 1935 when Alonzo Menendez and Pepe Garcia created a selection as the H Upmann Montecristo Selection. It was to be the 'Grande Marque' of the recently acquired H Upmann brand and was limited to just five sizes. The change of name simply to Montecristo was due to the British firm of John Hunter, who was appointed to be British agent, wanting to differentiate the brand from H Upmann which rival company Frankau handled.

These days Montecristo are available in just about every country in the world, apart from the United States (where a cigar of the same name, but produced elsewhere, is sold). They are rich and flavoursome with an almost creamy mouthfeel. In the run-up to the festive season, we have selected Montecristo's at a very keen price. Best stock up just now whilst you can!

Montecristo No 2 - Single

52
Cuba
RING GAUGE
Medium - Full

Voted the World’s finest cigar in 2015 by the cigar journal and Cigar Aficionado. Legendary is an over used word but not in this case. The ‘ Monte 2’ is certainly full-bodied but not overwhelmingly so. Brimming with aromas of leather, spice and cinnamon the flavours are sweet and gentle.

"The undisputed king of torpedoes is the Montecristo No. 2. The stately smoke with the pointy tip is known the world over ... extraordinary, teeming with rich but not overwhelming flavors of leather, such sweet spices as cinnamon and nutmeg and the cigar's trademark tangy wood note. They have enough flavor and power to satisfy those who smoke cigars on a regular basis without overwhelming those who puff less frequently." - Cigar Aficionado, Jan 2014
