Probably the most famous and the best selling Cuban cigar brand, the Montecristo name comes from the hero of Alexandre Dumas’ famous novel ‘The Count of Montecristo’. This was a firm favourite when read by the Lector to the Torcedores (cigar makers) at the factory where it was founded in 1935. The original Montecristo range of sizes was composed of a narrow assortment numbered from 1 to 5, which is still alive today and extended to meet the new needs of cigar smokers everywhere.
The Montecristo brand became incredibly popular worldwide and to this day accounts for roughly one-quarter of Habanos SA’s worldwide cigar sales, making it the most popular Cuban cigar in the world. The number 2 is the most popular cigar in the world market, so it is definitely one to get your hands on.
