More About Montecristo Cigars
The original Cuban Montecristo cigars debuted in 1935. The brand was named for the Alexandre Dumas novel, “The Count of Monte Cristo,” which was a very popular choice among the torcedores (cigar rollers) in their factory to have read by the lector on the rolling floor. Now handmade in the Dominican Republic and Nicaragua, Montecristo cigars remain one of the best-selling and most respected cigar brands in the world.
Montecristo Cigars (Original Yellow Box)
Featuring the finest of Dominican-grown, Cuban-seed tobaccos under choice Connecticut shade wrapper leaves, Montecristo cigars in the yellow box are recognized around the globe as the world's most famous cigar. Best Cigar Prices carries the full line of smooth, sweet, and aromatic Montecristo cigars, including the very popular Montecristo No. 2. Torpedo at the lowest prices online.
Combining a carefully selected Connecticut Shade Ecuadorian wrapper with a sturdy Nicaraguan binder and rich blend of Dominican and Nicaraguan long fillers, the Montecristo White is balanced, rounded, and refined in full flavor like none other. One of our best-selling Montecristo cigars, the Montecristo White serves up creamy flavors of sweet cedar and light spice in every delicious puff.
Montecristo Classic cigars showcase a flawless selection of American-grown Connecticut shade wrappers over ultra-flavorful Dominican binder and filler leaves, ultimately creating one of the finest cigars to ever bear the Montecristo name. More flavorful than one might assume, the Montecristo Classic blend conveys silky tones of cedar and earth with undertones of coffee and caramel that are sure to soothe the savage palate (or any other palate, for that matter.)
Montecristo Platinum cigars showcase an oily Mexican San Andres Cubano wrapper leaf around a supremely well-balanced blend of aged Nicaraguan, Dominican, and Peruvian tobaccos. The resulting smoke is rich and nuanced with amazing full-bodied flavor that has garnered numerous high industry ratings, including a noteworthy 92 from Cigar Aficionado.
Monte by Montecristo
One of the most deeply flavorful and complex offerings in the Montecristo cigar portfolio, Monte by Montecristo cigars owe their unique character in part to a combination of two different binder leaves - a zesty Dominican Olor and a bold Nicaraguan Corojo. Medium to full in body, the hearty, habano-wrapped Monte will enchant you with the same layered flavors of spicy cinnamon, sweet caramel and dark roast coffee that earned it an impressive 93 rating from Cigar Aficionado.
Strong and savory, the Montecristo Epic cigar injected new life into the legendary brand upon its release in 2012 with a bold blend of Nicaraguan and Dominican tobaccos under a peppery Ecuadorian Habano wrapper leaf. Leaning toward the full side of medium-full bodied, the Epic conveys a tasting profile that’s reminiscent of the Cuban Montecristo cigars of yore, offering creamy notes of sweet wood and earth punctuated by rich spice.
The smooth and toasty Montecristo Epic was recognized by Cigar Aficionado in 2016 with a stellar 91 rating.
Espada by Montecristo
Translating to "sword" in Spanish, the 92-rated Montecristo Espada carves out its own niche as the first Montecristo cigar made from 100% Nicaraguan tobaccos. The iconic brand’s Grupo de Maestros blending team was granted full access to Nestor Plasencia’s vast library of fine tobaccos to create this full-bodied masterpiece, combining select vintage long-fillers from Nicaragua’s Jalapa, Ometepe, and Condega regions to reach the ultimate balance of body, flavor, and strength. The resulting cigars are brilliantly rich, complex, and decadently tasty, boasting nuanced flavors of dark wood, creamy coffee, and subtle nutty sweetness before a spicy finish.
Montecristo White Vintage Connecticut
A sequel of sorts to the critically acclaimed Montecristo White cigar, the Montecristo White Vintage Connecticut owes much of its unmatched silky taste to a vintage 2008 Connecticut Shade wrapper grown in the sandy soils of the Connecticut River Valley. This golden-hued wrapper conceals a Nicaraguan binder and a lively trio of filler tobaccos from the Dominican Republic, Nicaragua, and Peru - a combination that delivers delicately balanced, toasty and creamy flavor that pays the ultimate compliment to a fine cup o’ joe.
