One of the most esteemed cigar brands in the world is Montecristo. Just mentioning the name exudes thoughts of quality, luxury and above all reliability. From their Cuban roots to their mass popularity coming out of the Dominican Republic, Montecristo will always be a staple of the cigar community. Montecristo offers a variety of different lines for different flavor and style preferences. Yet there is one Montecristo that almost everyone has tried, and most have enjoyed. It is the epitome of the mellow smoke and one of the best selling cigars in the world.
The Montecristo White has been around for over a decade. Since then they can be found on the shelves of almost any cigar shop in America. They are hand rolled at the Tabacalera de Garcia factory located in the city of La Romana in the Dominican Republic. It uses aged Dominican and Nicaraguan long filler tobaccos to give a rich and flavorful center, however, it is the Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper that gives it that signature taste of cream, vanilla, and coffee.
What the Montecristo White Series did, was show the world that you can have a high end mellow cigar that was still flavorful. It also showcased that Connecticut wrappers that are grown in Ecuador just have flavorful and premium as those grown in the US. This was one of the first major releases to utilize an Ecuadorian Connecticut leaf, and it helped that particular tobacco become as popular as it is.
The Montecristo White Series is a rite of passage. It is not only the perfect, high-end beginner smoke but also for a seasoned aficionado who just prefers something more in the mellow to medium range.
