In the world of Cuban cigars, Montecristo stands as a hallmark of excellence, a brand by which all other Habanos are compared. The name Montecristo, inspired by Alexandre Dumas’ renowned novel “The Count of Monte Cristo,” is more than just a brand—it’s an embodiment of a rich story read to cigar makers at its founding H.Upmann factory in Havana, 1935.
Over the years, Montecristo has expanded from its original five numbered vitolas to a wide range that caters to the most discerning tastes, from the grandeur of the Montecristo A to more compact formats. Notable additions such as the Montecristo Edmundo and Petit Edmundo, launched in 2004 and 2007, have further amplified the brand’s appeal.
Montecristo cigars are hand-crafted using meticulously selected leaves from Cuba’s Vuelta Abajo region, famous for the finest tobacco in the world. The rich, nuanced aroma and flavor of these cigars have charmed both seasoned smokers and newcomers to the Habano world.
In 2007, the Montecristo Reserva, featuring three years aged leaves, was introduced, paying homage to the classic Montecristo No. 4—the world’s best-selling Habano. In 2009, the Montecristo Open Line was launched, designed to be enjoyed in open spaces, introducing four new vitolas: Eagle, Master, Regata, and Junior.
Over time, Montecristo continued to innovate with new launches such as the first Gran Reserva made in Montecristo—the Montecristo Gran Reserva Cosecha 2005, and Montecristo Petit No. 2. In 2015, to mark its special 80th anniversary, Montecristo released an exclusive vitola and Montecristo Churchills Añejados, followed by the introduction of Montecristo Línea 1935, featuring three premium vitolas -Maltés, Dumas, and Leyenda.
Today, Montecristo stands as a testament to eight decades of unparalleled craftsmanship in the cigar world. Embrace the luxurious experience of Montecristo cigars—a taste steeped in history, a brand steeped in legacy. Join us on this journey of pure Cuban elegance.
