History of MONTECRISTO

Distributed widely throughout the world and sold originally by Dunhill New York, the Montecristo brand cigar currently accounts for almost 50% of all Cuban cigars exported each year, making the Montecristo the most popular Havana cigar in the world. The Montecristo was originally branded in 1935 under the name "the H. Upmann Montecristo Selection". When appointed the British distribution agent, the John Hunter firm shortened the brand's name to Montecristo. The John Hunter firm also redesigned the brand's logo to its distinctive red and yellow box with the triangular crossed swords. These delicious, full-flavored cigars are highly recognizable to the pallate due to their unique tobacco blend, and their highly distinctive flavor. The Montecristo brand is also highly popular as the result of it's exeptionally consistent quality.

Directly from the era of Art Deco, this sensual Cuban cigar has all the slim line allure of a top model and the soul of a blues man. A twisted cap makes the Especial easily recognisable and adds to its intrigue and flare. It may be the picture of elegance but the Especial is as strong as an ox! Once again the trademark earthiness and wet wood aromas are full-bodied and powerful. Seductive whilst being strong, the Especiales is a cigar you can take out on a night out and show it off!
