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.

This Corona will provide you with a voyage you will not forget quickly. A lovely construction emphasized by a ‘facile’ draw, starts sweet and builds to a relatively strong Montecristo with flavours of spice and precious wood. A constant cigar, so easy to smoke that you will grow to love it. The Especial No.2 goes beautifully with the sweet and sour cooking of Thai and Cambodian cuisine and compliments nicely New World white wines that are fruity and floral in taste.
