Fans of the original Montecristo will appreciate the Montecristo Platinum. With a rich, full body and flavor, the Platinum's complex mix of premium tobaccos leave a long finish on the palate. Montecristo is recognized as one of the most popular cigars in the world. The brand was born in Cuba in 1935, the origins of which stem from a popular tradition in the old Cuban cigar factories where tales and stories were recited to the cigar rollers during the long work day. A popular story of the time was 'The Count of Montecristo', which was so popular the name became a brand all its own. The non-Cuban version of this cigar was introduced into the U.S. during the peak of the cigar boom in 1995, and has since been a best-seller.
The Platinum line is one of the most popular Montecristo line extensions. Unlike its original counterpart, Platinum has a spicy and full-bodied flavor thanks to the Mexican binder which sits below its smooth Nicaraguan Habano wrapper. With a long finish and perfect burn, the components of this blend are among the finest available. Montecristo Platinum is yet another addition to a brand that has earned the highest marks for quality and flavor in the cigar industry.
