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.

So many people started to smoke Cubans with these Montecristo No.4's and they are, in fact, the highest selling cigars in the world. Why? Well they are devilishly reliable! Their excellent construction and masterful balance of power and flavour scream out quality. Quality means satisfaction and satisfaction guaranteed means wide scale success! The taste of the No.4 is so quintessentially Monte, damp earth and wood dominate the easy smoke. So delectable are these Monte's that they can be sampled at any hour of the day without spoiling the palate. My nephew swears by these, he is a little wet behind the ears in terms of smoking Cubans so I introduced him to the No.4 because they are like training wheels made of gold, and any novice smoker would love 'em. Reliable, reliable, reliable!
