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

90 / 100

"...There are a few gnarly veins to the wrapper of this otherwise attractive cigar. It burns unevenly, but draws well offering a heady combination of savory wood and nutty notes. The finish is sweet with marzipan an sassafras..."

The montecristo open eagle

After visiting Havana and booking into the same hotel where Ernest Hemingway stayed it was inevitable I would fall in love with cigars, oh and Cuba. After finishing the box of 25 montecristo no 3's recently I decided to explore the fine selection of cigars supplied by c.gars ltd. although I enjoyed the No3's I found myself wanting to try something milder. On a hot summers day I headed for Robert Graham in Cambridge. The guy in the shop was so helpful and after a un-rushed tour of the cigars he recommended the montecristo open eagle cigar. Now for the review. Without sounding over dramatic, I often find some foods,drinks and smells take me on a trip down memory lane. After lighting the cigar I was subconsciously transported back to Cuba. The 7 year old Havana club only enhanced my senses. What a fantastic smoke. I was so nervous that my first experience after the montecristo No3 would be an anti climax. I spent weeks reading reviews. Definitely an experience of coffee, but not just any coffee. I remember waking up in Havana after a hurricane passed through. The first thing I smelt was this amazing aroma of coffee. As I walked out of the hotel I decided to follow my nose. It took me into a small back street. There I saw an old lady at her table, rolling cigars. She puffed away on a cigar whilst rolling. I could just see the stove in the background where the coffee pot was boiling away. I didn't speak Spanish and she didn't speak English but she knew I was drawn by the smell of the coffee. She offered me a cup which I humbly accepted. I decided to light one of my montecristos and sat there for over an hour. Smoking the open eagle took me back to that day. I am so grateful to the guy at Robert graham for recommending this amazing cigar. Thank you.

Impossible to smoke. Plugged, yet again. No draw to speak of. Had to finish, due to absurd cost. I will never touch a Montecristo again. On my life, what are these Cubans playing at ? Allones specially selected and Bolivar Royal Coronas have never let me down, so Ill be sticking to them, I guess !

Tried my third one gifted to me at a wedding. Ive avoided reviewing any of the Open range so far as I felt I must have just had the worst luck imaginable with these. However I am now ready to add my thoughts. Utter garbage. Well rolled and presented inferior blends offering very little flavour and no complexity at all. Marketed to golfers of course - an easy target for flogging expensive junk to.

Really lovely smoke. Not really much else to be said other than get a box, try one and if you dont like it, send the rest of the box to me!

Well, just one week more in the Humi has transformed these big boys. Much firmer, and very much better. Rich, chocolatey, with an aroma of Jenny Agutters nearly new shoes.

Picked up a nearly full box of these in Spain from a friend who found them too mild. After 5 weeks in the humi, tried the first one. The construction is good, though loosely packed. I suggest the price reflects this low density. There is nothing offensive in this cigar and if that sounds like faint praise, it is. Its ok, but lacks interest. I would choose an Edmundo over this, every time.
