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.

From the first draw of this beautifully constructed cigar, you will understand where Habanos are coming from with the new Montecristo Open line. Fresh and flavoursome, these cigars are for outdoor, relaxed smoking. Very different from the classic Montecristo's, the Open line have added another dimension to the family. The Master (evoking Master's Tennis series) will certainly be very popular with the bigger ring gauge smokers.
