Montecristo is the best known and probably 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 when read by the Lector to the Torcedores (cigar makers) at the factory where it was founded in 1935. 

The original Montecristo range of sizes was composed of a narrow assortment numbered from 1 to 5. Today it consists of a wide variety of vitolas to cover every level of the cigar enthusiast's needs. 

Today, Montecristo is the best selling and most well known premium cigar brand in the world and recently celebrated its 80th Anniversary. To mark the occasion, a commemorative cigar was unveiled aptly named the "80 Aniversario" but unforeseen circumstances delayed its launch. However, this much anticipated cigar has now arrived much to the delight of the many Montecristo enthusiasts around the world. It is an entirely new size within the Habanos portfolio (6 ½” (165mm) x 55 ring gauge) and is presented in commemorative boxes of 20 cigars. The cigars are also dressed with a second band and limited production will ensure that these cigars will be extremely sought after.

Bought and smoked one of these in Barbados from Sandy Lane. Would recommend but given the hype I heard about the texture etc. I found this to be a lot drier and plain compared to the standard of Montecristo. Would smoke another as I'm a firm believer in re trying after a bad experience but will update once I've smoked it. (Smoked with a V cut) So will try again with a standard cut this time.

Whilst i admit that the hype for this cigar is warranted, what i find is that this particular cigar, whilst milder and mellower than other cigars in the Montecristo family it does not strike one as a cigar of passion and of memories. A special occasion calls for a special cigar and that is exactly what i did for my birthday over the weekend. A lovely little spot in Zurich, good company and the end of day's celebrations. Very courteously i was granted permission at the Lounge to smoke this cigar (always best to ask when taking one's own cigar). Very good construction from Montecristo, with a very clean draw. Cutting the cap was flawless and the lighting was even easier, although one can assume with a 55 ring gauge it could all change. Tasting notes in the first 3rd were somewhat mixed, sour berries and a sweet grass (which i find with younger cigars-think the Club Allones EL 2015 when it first hit the shelves) 2nd 3rd-development of the flavours- more cherries (soured) and a mellower finish on the retrohale. although the finish on the palette was still rather light. Final 3rd- flavours mellow out and considering the mild nature of this cigar at the start the strength and the body has definitely increased. i would class this as an overall Full Body and Full Flavour. however for the price and the consideration i still think a canonazo is a better vitola and a better cigar, the Siglo VI is around the same price (if not cheaper) and a much more enjoyable experience. Not to say i didn't enjoy this cigar, i did. But it really wouldn't be a cigar i would purchase again.

I was lucky enough to try one of these a month ago, it's a lovely cigar. If you like the milder MC's then this one s for you. It mild, mellow and relaxing. I had mine on a Sunday morning which was perfect. Don't be fooled by the size, it's not strong so if you like any kind of hit this one is not for you. It's pricey, but of course, if you are a MC fan, you're going to try it aren't you. I think you will enjoy.
