MONTECRISTO 80 Aniversario. Special Commemorative Edition


26/02/2015

Montecristo 80 AniversarioMontecristo, one of Habanos S.A.’s most recognized brands around the world, has decided to present smokers with a special and one-of-a-kind vitola to mark its 80th anniversary.

Montecristo 80 Aniversario was specially selected by Habanos S.A. to commemorate the foundation of this larger-than-life brand back in 1935. The 20 habanos in this exclusive edition have been “completely hand-rolled with long filler”, following a selection of exquisite filler, binder and wrapper leaves from the finest tobacco plantations of Vuelta Abajo* (D.O.P.). 

The vitola and the blend, especially strong, have been designed for smokers who prefer intense tastes.

The Montecristo 80 Aniversario is unique, with special sizes unseen in any other product within the Habanos’ regular vitola portfolio, since it’s been specially devised to lure smokers who prefer thick ring-gauge habanos of exquisite, well-balanced and intense blend. 

This commemorative edition comes in an exclusively designed box made with Cuba’s finest softwood, featuring a fancy brown-glazed finish and all the edges beautifully beveled. The box lid sports the Montecristo round seal on top, inspired in the band design that stands out for its bright gilt shades.

This edition’s habanos also feature an exclusive and innovative presentation. For this occasion, the brand’s band is fully finished in gold, coupled with a second band that proudly depicts the edition’s motif: 80 Aniversario.

Montecristo is the best known and perhaps the most coveted habano brand, penciled in by many as the taste benchmark among all Cuban cigars. It was named after the character in “The Count of Montecristo” novel penned by Alejandro Dumas, a highly acclaimed literary work among cigar rollers at the H. Upmann factory in Havana, where the brand was founded in 1935.

Its exquisite blend is exclusively made with leaves hailing from Vuelta Abajo, the land of the world’s best tobacco. Its two blends –the original, featuring a mild-to-strong taste, and the mild strength of the Open line- deliver a distinct aroma that continues to captivate both the most seasoned smokers and those who are cutting their teeth in the realm of habanos.
