Montecristo

Montecristo is one of the most well-known brands in the world, and an icon in the cigar industry. Originally made in Cuba, the Dominican version of Montecristo made its United States debut in 1995—and at Deco Drive Cigars, we’ve never looked back.

The legend of the Montecristo cigar began in 1935, when Cubans Alonzo Menéndez and Pepe García first started production of the line. Traditionally, cigar rollers in Cuba were kept entertained during long days of production by having books read to them; as the story goes, the fact that one of their favorites was The Count of Montecristo served as the inspiration behind Menéndez and García’s decision to give their cigars the Montecristo name.

Today, after a long history of lawsuits and moving around of the company (at one point, after parting ways with Menéndez, García established the company in Spain’s Canary Islands), the Montecristos found in the United States are handmade in La Romana, Dominican Republic. This Dominican incarnation of the Montecristo is considered one of the finest cigars on the market.

Montecristo offers several distinct lines, including earthy White Label, rich Afrique, and spicy Platinum. The Montecristo White, which was produced as a response to requests for a mild and creamy cigar that retained the characteristics that have made Montecristos so popular, is a blend of select Dominican and Nicaraguan long fillers rolled in Connecticut Shade wrappers with a Nicaraguan binder; the Montecristo Afrique is a mix of African and South American tobacco, wrapped in a Cameroon leaf with an Ecuadorian Sumatran binder; and the Montecristo Platinum is a blend of Caribbean, Central American, and South American black tobacco, wrapped in a dark Mexican Cubano leaf with a Dominican binder. Each line is unique—but all are unmistakably Montecristo cigars.

Classic yet always imaginative, Montecristo cigars have consistently measure up to the legend of their name from the company’s early days to its present. Slow-burning, impeccably crafted, and packed with flavor, the Montecristo brand has something for everyone—and Deco Drive Cigars has the selection you’re looking for.
