Montecristo was born from humble beginnings in Cuba in 1935. At the time, there was a tradition of reciting stories to the cigar rollers over their long work days. One of the most popular of these was The Count of Montecristo. So popular, in fact, they named a brand after it. Since that day, the Montecristo name has become one of the most popular cigars in the world. Today they set standards for quality, flavor, and consistency among the top manufacturers. Montecristo now operates out of the Tabacalera de Garcia factory in the Dominican Republic. From mellow-bodied, Connecticut Shade-wrapped blends like the Montecristo Classic, to the bold, rich flavors of Montecristo Epic and Montecristo Media Noche, this brand is available in a variety of premium handmade blends for all palates.
