The brand of Montecristo is the single most popular brand of Havana cigars
The brand was started up by Alonzo Menendez and Pepe Garcia in 1935. Combining a brilliant sense of quality with some great marketing, Menendez and Garcia managed to rise to the top and become the standard that other cigars are measured against.
Inspiration for the name Montecristo came from The Count of Monte Cristo (or Le Comte de Monte Cristo) written by Alexandre Dumas and considered a literary classic, much like the cigars are a classic! Cigar factory rollers were (and still are) often read books by ‘El Lector’ and no doubt this book was one of the favourites. Perhaps, this may be because it is a splendid adventure story about a man who acquires a great fortune and seeks revenge on his oppressor.
The Taste: Now like with everything, it cannot just be marketing that creates such a successful brand. Perhaps even more so with cigars. Montecristo have that ability to satisfy every need, whether it is a morning smoke you are looking for, or a cigar late at night after a big meal, you will find a Montecristo to suit the occasion. These delicious, medium to full-flavoured cigars are very familiar to the palate as a result of their unique tobacco blend and their highly distinctive flavour. Montecristo cigars are hand rolled and of exceptional quality.
