One of today's most popular brands with cigar aficionados, Montecristo dates back to 1935 Cuba, and the two men who created it, Alonso Menendez and Pepe Garcia.

When Fidel Castro's communist government took over the Montecristo brand along with the rest of the Cuban cigar industry, Menendez and Garcia fled Cuba, where they eventually ended up in the Dominican Republic and re-established their Montecristo brand in the mid-1970s. This new location enabled them to re-release their Montecristo brand, and sell it directly to the U.S. market, where Cuba's rights to the brand aren't recognized due to the trade embargo.

The Montecristo Afrique is a unique traditional cigar expertly handcrafted from mostly African cigar tobaccos from Cameroon and Tanzania, it has a wonderfully distinct and entrancing flavor with an exotic, spicy core. Indescribably rich and creamy, this one-of-a-kind luxury blend is an absolute must-try for all cigar aficionados.

Worth the Wait

It had been quite a long time since I last smoked the Jambo Jambo but it was just as good as I remembered it to be. Good combination of spiciness balanced the typical smooth and creamy nature of Monte's. The draw and burn were excellent and I did not have to relight this cigar one time while dealing with 30 mph winds on the golf course.

This was my first try with a Monte and I was not disappointed. Great draw and a smooth taste. I will be back for more
