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. 

Montecristo's perfectly balanced blends are created exclusively with selected filler and binder leaves from the Vuelta Abajo zone, home of the finest tobaccos in the world. 

Tasting Notes

92 / 100

"...Slightly pressed with a wrapper that's silky to the touch. The smoke layers the palate with an ample almond nuttiness met by notes of orange peel, oak and a coffee-like, Sumatra-bean finish..."

Classic Montecristo leather, pepper and coffee notes cigar but with a smoother and sweeter experience. David - C.Gars Ltd Cigar Ambassador
by Simon on Sunday 06 May, 2018
A delightful cigar, consistent from the first to the last lamented draw. Cedar, leather and pepper, along with a cool sweetness that is totally wonderful on the palate. When In search of the mythical never ending cigar, youd want it to be like this, never harsh and always communicating its provdence from every easy pull. So much so that despite being an infrequent cigar smoker, today I felt the need to smoke another cigar later in the day. Sadly it wasnt an Edmundo, but a giant slayer in the guise of a Jose Piedra, whilst not as sublime as the Monte, scratched the itch that it had left me with. Id give the Edmundo a 4.5, its not a No2 but it is an undeniably good smoke and one that should be a go to on a warm summers day when relaxation with no hassle is what is required. Some have said that the burn is a little uneaven, yes maybe slightly, but never did it canoe or become something that dominated the smoke. I know that I often say this, but Id urge you to try this wonderful cigar should you get the chance.

Reviewed by Stuart Dixon (December 2005) Last June (2004), whilst working in York, I tracked down the local cigar emporium in the centre of town. This small and well-stocked tobacconist provided 30-minutes worth of "Ooohs" and "Ahhs" as I pressed my nose against the glass door of the walk-in humidor. I decided immediately upon seeing them that one of the (then) newly-released Montecristo Edmundo's should grace my humidor with its presence, and so picked out the best example. Substantial in girth, the cigar is dressed in a mid-brown, sheeny wrapper. Solid the entire length, there is a certain toothiness about it, veins evident from top to bottom, and it's double-capped. It is excellently balanced and feels exceptional in the hand. On the nose, there is leather and fruit, and some pepper to the lips. It is altogether a very good-looking cigar. I did read that the cigar was a tad "green" back in the summer of 04 and that it required between 6 months and 3 years to age. I put this single onto the bottom shelf of the humidor and tried to forget about it. A year later, a trip to London with the Mrs, and a visit to Dick's Bar in the Atlantic Bar and Grill in Piccadilly in July (oh, yes, I am aware how this must look, but it was true!), seemed like the fitting occasion to smoke this majestic cigar. In the art deco splendour, with a Havana Club on the table in front of me, I pulled it out and began the ritual. It took two matches to toast the foot, the girth being so substantial, but I was in no hurry. I then lit the cigar proper and noted the toasted woodiness that wafted into the room. The opening draws were some of the very best I've had from any cigar. The pull was just excellent, producing bountiful amounts of thick aromatic smoke which were grandly exhaled towards the starry ceiling of the bar. The flavours were light - sharp cedar and spices, peppery and crisp. In the hand, the Edmundo feels just superb - significant, ample and generous all spring to mind - and it looks like a serious cigar. It is particularly imposing in its first inch or so, when it still has that square ash. Strength-wise, it is a gentle-giant and certainly no cigar beginner should be put off by this one. I found it quite mild, perhaps entering the medium spectrum in its latter stages. The burn was a little disappointing - it quickly became ragged and required correction - and the ash was initially good and square, but later coned, spoiling the "cut" of the cigar, but, these minor gripes aside, I enjoyed the smoke immensely. Into the final third, the cigar began to go out. I re-lit it once, but some bitterness was evident and I finally dropped it in a Piccadilly gutter, a glamorous end for any Cuban cigar. They are perhaps young and fresh still, but age can only add to their quality. This is - and will be - something a bit special. I found this review to be much too wordy for my tastes. I understand that surroundings can play a big part of smoking a special cigar but I would have preferred to have heard more about the cigar and less about the author's surroundings. There was really only the one, one-sentence paragraph that described the actual flavours o! f the cigar. And while the Edmundo is a cigar that I would still like to try, this review did not increase my desire much. Reviewed by: ScottyJ Score: 7 out of 10 (Would have been a 6 if I didn't think the author was really trying.) I like this review! It read like a story that drew the reader in. I liked the way he/she described the characteristics I want to know about, smoke volume and aroma, draw, weight, ash. Hints of "cherry" and "hickory bark" that are so prevalent in other reviews I can do without. I will try this cigar some day - because of this review. Reviewed by: Darry Rose Score: 9 out of 10 Written in more of a formal style, I liked the use of visual imagery but it did not enhance the description of the cigar and took focus away from the subject at hand. I did like description of the burn qualities of the cigar ..I could visualize exactly what was happening. Reviewed by: Chris Cacciotti Score: 6 out of 10 OVERALL SCORE: 22/30

My last Cristo was a Petit No.2 which I loved. Surprisingly the Edmundo I am smoking as we speak is falling way short of the Petit No.2. The main taste sensation I am experiencing is very very sweet and one dimensional. he burn of the first half was erratic enough to be annoying. A one off? I don't know.If this is a fair comparison of the two then count me in for the Petit No.2 every time. Disappointing considering all of the glowing reviews and the fact that the Edmundo is about 2 more expensive!

Absolutely lovely smoke. Perfect construction and very good draw. Plenty of smoke and complex flavours throughout. Be aware of the interesting spicy kick in the last inch.
