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

This is a rich and flavourful cigar, with the typical Montecristo profile. Burns well and not too fast, but certainly not a slow burner. A superb cigar for after dinner or late afternoon.

Beautiful smoke! I normally prefer the chunky cigars but this one was great for a light midweek smoke. It burned with a lovely consistency and not too much of a kick. Quite mild indact. I would definitely get one if these again. I love the montecristos and this is no exception.

Great cigar, nice smoke, great draw and a lovely sweet flavour. Given 4/5 however because the wrapper started to peel and there was a nasty gash on the side of the cigar, splitting the wrapper. Didnt effect too much however, was rather annoying. On the whole a lovely cigar!

Five months of cigar smoking experience, I have tried many and this is my favorite. For me this is a medium strength. I cant describe all the flavors well but they are interesting, pleasant and very enjoyable. I knew the draw was problematic as soon as I cut the end off. Fortunately I purchased a tool with my last order and I used it for the first time. It probably saved the cigar! A great day! I have found my main cigar and the tool that will solve many problems, avoiding disappointments.

I would like to start by saying that this is an exceptionally good cigar. I ordered it it multiple times in the past and loved it each time. The reason for bad review is that the one I ordered recently was awful. Not sure if it was just one off or there was a bad batch or some storage issues. The cigar was badly made, there was a thick lump of harden tobacco inside it and it barely smoked. In the end i had to cut it and remove 2/3 to be able to smoke what was left. Wondering if anybody else had such an experience with this cigar.

Ive never smoked this Vitola before but i am back to back testing the Especiales No.2 with cohiba's version on the Especiales.. So far this stick is lovely in the hand. I am a fan of big ring gauges but feel sometimes they can be a bit "bull in a china shop". This is lovely and delicate, a gentleman's smoke if you will... in the hand it feels sophisticated. I am surprised at the huge plooooombs its giving off amd the intense typical monte flavour which seems to be sweeter and more intense than any other Monte i have smoked to date. This is a lovely cigar. The aroma takes over and its quite simply the best Monte for flavour i have had. Def recommend for am evening smoke in the shed, as opposed to the windy park. And i cant wait to try cohibas version if this is anything to go by! 9/10
