Montecristo is the best known and probably the most appreciated brand
of Habanos throughout the world. It forms the benchmark for many
Habanos smokers against which other brands are judged.
The name comes from the hero of Alexandre Dumas' famous novel ‘The
Count of Montecristo', which was a firm favourite amongst the Torcedores
( Cigar Makers) at the H.Upmann factory where it was founded in 1935.
Today the range, which was originally composed of a narrow assortment
strictly numbered from 1 to 5, covers every level of the cigar
enthusiasts' needs from the majestic Montecristo A to the tiny Joyita.
Montecristo's perfectly balanced blend is created exclusively with
selected leaves from the Vuelta Abajo region, home of the finest
tobaccos in the world. Its distinctive medium to full flavour and
distinguished aroma appeal equally to both new and experienced smokers.
All Montecristo sizes are now and always have been ‘totalmente a mano, tripa larga' -totally hand made, long filler.
