Montecristo No.2 - The Epitome of Cuban Excellence:
Crafted by the Alonso Menendez Company in the 1940s, the Montecristo range has become synonymous with outstanding quality and craftsmanship. The Montecristo No.2 cigar, with its length of 6 1/8" and a ring gauge of 52, offers a robust and satisfying smoking experience. This strong cigar delights the palate with hints of nut, caramel, vanilla, and cocoa, creating a truly exceptional taste profile. Montecristo is the go-to choice for discerning cigar smokers, from the smaller No. 5 to the famous No. 2 torpedo.
Unveiling the Essence of Montecristo:
To fully appreciate the Montecristo No.2, a minimum ageing of three years is recommended. This allows the cigar to reach its greatest potential, revealing its complex flavours and nuances. However, even fresh out of the box, Montecristo cigars are meticulously crafted and aged, ensuring an enjoyable smoke from the moment you light up.
A Legacy Rooted in Literature and Tradition:
The name Montecristo pays homage to Alexandre Dumas's famous novel 'The Count of Montecristo.' It was a beloved story among the torcedores (cigar makers) at the factory where Montecristo was founded in 1935. Since then, Montecristo has become a symbol of excellence and sophistication in the cigar world.
The Finest Tobacco Selection:
Montecristo's perfectly balanced blends are created exclusively with selected filler and binder leaves from the Vuelta Abajo zone, renowned for producing the world's finest tobaccos. The original medium to full taste and medium flavour found in the Montecristo No.2 offer a distinguished aroma and appeal to both new and experienced smokers alike.
