Altadis wanted to do something big for Montecristo's 80th anniversary, and they did! This delicious cigar is the pure essence of Cubanesque, very appropriate when celebrating a brand that originated in Cuba in 1935. This very limited edition of Montecristo is made with a cuban-seed tobacco called "Pilotico", grown and cured by the Mendez family in Dominican Republic. The wrapper is a flawless Ecuadorian Sumatra. A medium to full bodied smoke that is nutty, leathery and sweet.
