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. 

The Open range offer Montecristo lovers a medium bodied smoke still offering Montecristos classic flavours. 

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

A small cigar perfect for lighting up when time is short. This size is produced for only one other Habanos, Hoyo de Monterrey, where it is called Le Hoyo du Depute. Enjoy its delicate flavour for around twenty minutes.


90 / 100

"...Rustic in appearance, this little smoke starts out with toasted coconut notes that warm to show plenty of robust earth and leather..."

I have just finished my first box of these cigars and ordered a replacement box of 20 from this website. Although there are various negative reviews of these cigars I have found them to be very enjoyable, and easily shared amongst my friends. A smooth, rich and complex set of tastes from beginning to end, I find these open juniors a very pleasant smoke, particularly after a meal.

The general consensus of this range has been negative but smoked my with an open mind. Not a patch on the other cigars in the Montecristo range. Found the flavours a little bland and uninspiring. Having said that it was enjoyable and smoked very well. If your new to cigars then this would be a very pleasing introduction to this brand, which I feel was the factories initial intention! As far as this goes the brief has been more than such sucessfully fulfuilled! Not my favourite smoke by any strech but would happily smoke one again if given one for example, so cannot be that bad. I think people are disappointed as Montecristo have set themselves such high standards to live up to but dont be put of, this is still a good smoke, though maybe not for the pureist or people who enjoy a fuller, richer flavour (such as myself).

Only had this in my humidor for a week so was pretty fresh. Was a bit harsh after lighting but totally mellowed down very quickly. First half smoked very well, slow burning and very even, very peppery and spicey with a hint of leather taste. Kept pretty cool down to the last third, produced an enjoyable ammount of smoke. Reminded me a bit like a montecristo no.5 but stronger! All in all an enjoyable smoke but definatly not one for the morning.

An OK cigar, nothing spectacular. The construction was quite light compared to other cigars that i have smoked of similar size. First few puffs were a bit harsh but then things mellowed out. Not a bland cigar, quite spicy but i was expecting a bit more considering the price and name. Maybe i had too high hopes for this.
