This is the SAME great Cigar, just packaged in the Green Plain Liberal Packaging with the ORIGINAL CIGAR BAND underneath.
Size: Toro 5 7/8" x 54
A great cigar that draws well, offering a heady combination of savory wood and nutty notes. The finish is sweet with marzipan an sassafras.
The Montecristo Open series consists of four sizes blended to a lighter flavour than other sizes in Montecristo’s range and is aimed at a new generation of smokers, who enjoy the pleasures of outdoor pursuits.
Montecristo is the best known and probably the most appreciated brand of Habanos throughout the world. It forms the benchmark for many Habanos smokers against which other brands are judged.
The name comes from the hero of Alexandre Dumas’ famous novel ‘The Count of Montecristo’, which was a firm favourite when read by the Lector to the Torcedores (cigar makers) at the factory where it was founded in 1935.
The original Montecristo range of sizes was composed of a narrow assortment numbered from 1 to 5. Today it consists of a wide variety of vitolas to cover every level of the cigar enthusiast’s needs. In 2004 the 52 ring gauge Edmundo size was introduced in recognition of the trend for heavy gauge sizes, and a shorter version, the Petit Edmundo, followed two years later. Why Edmundo? It is the first name of Edmundo Dantes, the hero of Dumas’ novel.
