The Montecristo cigar brand has its origins in Cuba and dates back to 1935, when the brand was created by Alonso Menendez and Pepe Garcia in Cuba.

When Fidel Castro's communist government took over the Montecristo brand along with the rest of the Cuban cigar industry, the owners of Montecristo, Menendez and Garcia fled Cuba, and eventually ended up in the Dominican Republic where today's Montecristos are produced.

A classic brand with a spicy twist—The Montecristo H2000 cigar is hand made in the Dominican Republic, with Dominican binder, and filler tobaccos encased in a Nicaraguan-grown H2000 wrapper. This peppery wrapper leaf helps make this blend into an immensely satisfying cigar for the more experienced smoker who desires a bit more flavor from his cigars.

MONTECRISTO HABANA 2000 ESPECIAL NO. 2

Steve Nathan, Training Manager

Simply put, with a shape and blend for every type of smoker, the Montecristo selection is staggering. I chose to review a smoke from the classic Habana 2000 line, which features a wrapper produced by blending Cuban Corojo and Connecticut shade tobacco to create a flavor very close to a genuine Cuban cigar.

Each cigar is beautifully packaged in a yellow cardboard yellow sleeve, making this 5.00 x 40 Corona very appealing right from the start. Interestingly, this little beauty performed more like a maduro than a classic shade Connecticut and, upon lighting, I noticed an immediate aroma and taste of dark chocolate and leather.

With a delightful airy draw that enhanced all of the flavors effortlessly, I found that the spicy-sweet bouquet further added enjoyment to the overall smoking experience. This is definitely a robust little cigar complete with a pleasing zesty taste that lingers. Its burn was incredibly slow, going on for as long many larger-ring-gauge smokes. This Monte definitely has a special place in my humidor and is consistently part of my smoking rotation.
