Montecristos are fine Cuban-style cigars, handcrafted in the Dominican Republic. The brand is now owned by Altadis. There are a lot of different premium cigars available under the Montecristo brand family. These include Montecristo Classic, the Platinum Series, Montecristo 75th Anniversary, Montecristo Afrique, and Montecristo Espada cigars. These and other Montecristo cigars are all constructed of vintage filler tobaccos and different wrapper tobaccos. With an aged Dominican tobacco blend in the filler, a Dominican binder, and a silky smooth Connecticut shade wrapper these mild-smoke cigars have an interesting mix of flavors.
The 75th Anniversary line of cigars is a Limited Edition blend. The finely aged combination of Nicaraguan and Honduran long-leaf filler is tied with a Nicaraguan binder. The cigars have a brown Ecuadorian Habano wrapper. The Platinum Series has an exquisite blend of vintage Dominican, Nicaraguan, and Peruvian long-leaf tobaccos, a Dominican binder, and a rich San Andres Cubano wrapper. The Afrique line has a unique filler blend of choice Cameroon and Tanzania tobaccos, along with Nicaraguan and Peruvian tobaccos. The Cameroon wrapper adds to the taste and aroma of this cigar, making it a spicy, rich and creamy smoke. The Espada line is constructed fully of Nicaraguan tobaccos. A select blend of different Nicaraguan tobacco leaves is bound together using a Jalapa binder. The wrapper is also Habana tobacco grown in the rich Jalapa region of Nicaragua. This particular cigar has a complex flavor profile of earth, wood, spice, nuts, and coffee, a rich and pleasantly sweet smoke.
Whichever line of Montecristo cigar you pick, you can be assured that the cigar is handcrafted using the best and finest vintage of tobacco leaves, and constructed with care to provide a long and delightful smoking experience.
