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.

A New Favorite

Well constructed cigar. Perfect consistent draw. Nice nutty, slightly sweet and rich flavor from the Cameroon wrapper (my personal favorite) and the unique blend of tobaccos for the binder and filler. A definite addition to my cigar rotation.

Very solid cigar. I've had the jambo jambo in the past and prefer that size over this one. Didn't have as much pepper and spice to it.

Solid Montecristo, great price

I am a Monte fan, so I knew this would be a winner from the first few puffs. A little flatter in flavor diversity than the Platinums or Whites but a nice rich and nutty smoke. Burned well and stayed reasonably cool.

This cigar will always have a place in my humidor. The woody flavors with hints of leather, chile powder and cocoa are amazing. The price makes these an affordable everyday cigar.
