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.

jambo its party time

Erik with a K on 04/07/15

jambo! This cigar lives up to its promise with rich flavors. Burns very even, makes a healthy ash. These are finger burners. Pick up a pack and enjoy.

Very good, but damaged wrapper.

John A. on 03/16/15

I discovered this one in the Montecristo sampler. Sadly, the wrapper fell apart on this otherwise very tasty and smooth cigar. Despite being med-full in strength, it was never harsh or overly spicy all the way to the end- where I got to enjoy the intact wrapper. Definitely worth another try.
