Montecristo is one of the most beloved and trusted cigar brands in the world. Its origins date back to 1935 Cuba, when the brand was created by 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, the owners, Menendez and Garcia fled Cuba, and eventually ended up in the Dominican Republic where today's Montecristos are produced.

This unique blend promises to have all of the characteristics for which the legendary Montecristo brand is known and loved.

Handmade at the famed Tabacalera de Garcia factory in, Dominican Republic, these beauties are flawlessly constructed with a perfectly aged blend of long-filler tobaccos, a smooth binder, and an attractive, medium-brown Connecticut wrapper. It’s a slow-burning, mouthwatering smoke bursting with complex flavors and a pleasing aroma.

If you're a Montecristo lover pick up a box today. You won't be disappointed.

DUBS on 09/03/17

My first Montecristo purchase. Not worth the price. Poor draw and have to re light several times. Arrived hard and dry. Flavor disappointing.

Monte Red

Not my favorite montecristo but it definitely lives up to its name. I didn't get much out of this one though. Still tasty

Another good MonteCristo

JJONES135 on 08/03/17

I've always loved the MonteCristo cigars. I really like pretty much everything that they make. The MonteCristo Red is a really nice stick. The red is smooth like most of the the other MonteCristo cigars. Almost always consistent with the exception of a few. And unlike the Monte, and the 4x44 (light or dark) I've had lately they don't require as much time in humidor. They are somewhat like the classic with a little more spicyness and kick. I definitely recommend this cigar expecially if they are on sale.

Poor Craftmanship

BARILLOO7 on 09/12/17

I am so disappointed the way A.Fuentes family is allowing the poor construction of these cigars . The last 20 boxes of Monties Red that I purchased 7 out of 10 that's a complete box just burned very badly. I've been smoking for 40 years and love a fine cigar, but to pay for a fine cigar and get crappy craftsmantship is unacceptable. I've will no longer buy any reds, or monties for that matter. Classics aren't any made any better.

Great Great Little Surprise.

Happy Smoker! on 06/07/17

Great cigar, great flavor, great burn. I loved it since I smoked the first one. My wife loved the smell too. In fact, once she even got jealous, I was at a bar smoking one, I was approached by this lady and she said she could not resist the great aroma, a few minutes later, another lady approached me and said the cigar smelled delicious.

Monte Red is a Winner

Brian P on 09/17/17

This one is right up my alley. Same great construction and burn as other Montes, but with a little strength to it. Not overly done but just enough to make it a winner. Definately putting it on my list. Still not as good though as Monte White......but costs less too
