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. 

Medias Corona literally translates as “Half Corona” and the size was first introduced in the UK back in 1907 by an English cigar importer who wanted to stop keeping his wife waiting for him at the theatre while he enjoyed the last of his Corona sized cigar.

The Montecristo Medias Corona represents the second time that this format has been used and, at just 3 1/2 inches long, it remains the shortest long-filler handmade Cuban cigar you can buy.

Tasting Notes

The taste that has made Montecristo the world’s most sought-after premium cigar is often described as “tangy”. Certainly the flavour is distinctive. 

Other words commonly used to describe the taste include ‘coffee’ and ‘cocoa beans’, ‘pepper’ as well as ‘orange peel’, ‘cinnamon’ and ‘vanilla’, all of which lead to the conclusion that a delicious bitter-sweet, spicy taste lies at the heart of Montecristo’s success combined, of course, with the perfect balance of its tobacco blend.

"...Enrobed in a veiny, wrinkled wrapper, this small corona offers a salty, nutty smoke fortified with notes of coffee bean and earthy underpinnings. It tastes better than it looks..."

Fabulous Small Cigars, great for winter in the UK when its too cold to sit outside for any length of time. Medium to Full flavours, around 20/30 minutes of real pleasure! Im about to stock up and buy another 5 boxes!

I had this cigar at 10am with my morning coffee and I was very pleasantly surprised. My ash dropped off just as I was finishing up my smoke, lovely bright ash. Im quite new to cigars so Im still in the early stages, however I would certainly recommend. For me it was an earthy taste and it wasnt over powering. I use a punch and the draw was excellent.
