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.

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.
