November 22, 2007

Habanos s.a. is proud to introduce the Montecristo B: A legendary size as the brand itself. Produced in limited quantities through the years, Montecristo B has always found a special place amongst the lovers of the brand.

Montecristo is the best known and probably the most appreciated brand of Habanos throughout the world. The name comes from the hero of Alexandre Dumas’ famous novel ‘The Count of Montecristo’, which was a firm favourite amongst the cigar rollers at the factory where it was founded in 1935. Montecristo’s perfectly balanced blend is created exclusively with selected leaves from the Vuelta Abajo region, home of the finest tobaccos in the world. Its distinctive medium to full flavour and distinguished aroma appeals equally to both new and experienced smokers.

Montecristo lovers will be pleased with having this Habano back, discontinued in the early 70’s of the past century. Now, in the shape of a beautiful Humidor with 50 cigars inside. The 50 Montecristo B in this humidor have been elaborated to commemorate the 100th anniversary of Compay Segundo’s birth, famed master of Cuban music and a faithful devotee to the brand Montecristo. This treasure is indeed a replica of an old humidor discontinued for over 30 years as well.

The Montecristo B, with a ring gauge of 42 and 135 mm in the length, offers consumers the flavour and the blend of a renowned premium brand in a mythic size. It will become an excellent choice for those who want to feel the real character of Montecristo.

This Humidor will be available at the Casas del Habano throughout the world and we are certain that Montecristo lovers will appreciate it, the way they have been doing for the past 72 years.
