The famous Montesino No. 1 features a wonderful blend of Dominican and Nicaraguan tobacco. These cigars are mild and are perfect for cigar enthusiasts looking to end the day on a good note. Connecticut Shade wrappers encase a Nicaraguan binder and a sweet, flavorful Dominican long filler, layered with nutty undertones and notes of wood. What is really exceptional about this cigar is the extended aging period each leaf undergoes, making for a much richer flavor profile.
Montesino No. 1s are 6 ⅞ inches in length and have a ring gauge of 43. You can get your hands on 25 of these cigars in a classy wooden box that helps retain the natural oils so essential to a good smoke. For a neutral pairing try smoking these with a cold soda, but for a more complex experience, accompany with a mature red wine. Every Montesino cigar is crafted by a master roller from incredibly well-seasoned tobacco. Over the years, they have acquired a number of honors including rating No.5 on Cigar Aficionado magazine’s list of 25 Best Cigars Of 2008.
