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.

Always Monte

As with all Monte's no mater the blend or vitola, you can always count on a excellently crafted stick full of flavor. This one is no different, this guy has a bit of piquant flavor from the African leaf with a coco background. I have bought these in different sizes sand they are always a treat.

Nice mellow flavor and a very even burn

Shared this with a buddy who smokes 2-3 sticks a year, he was blown away and I was pleased as well. Great late afternoon smoke, burned for over an hour. Only tip would be to let them rest in the humidor for a few weeks before smoking.

Good burn and raw but the flavor was lacking. Kept getting hotter until half way down when I threw it away and lit up a La Gloria.Wavell..Much beter

Good smoke

Really enjoyed this smoke. It's great for a quick afternoon or evening puff. Definitely in my top 10 cigars as of now. Burns nicely, Jr ships quickly and cheaply
