Launched in 1935 by the H. Upmann factory as a tribute to the Count of Monte Cristo - the cigar smoking hero of Alexandre Dumas novel. Montecristo's balanced blend and distinguished aroma appeal to all levels of smokers, making it one of the world's most popular brand.
Along with the classic hand rolled appearance and the rustic flavor from Montecristo, these shorts also deliver a consistent draw with packed flavors. The Puritos offers a light flavour of hay mixed with a touch of leather, once lit flavours of sweet cream, coffee and toasted tobacco are up front with a dash of spice coming in halfway through. The best part of this cigar is its approachable size which makes it the perfect accompaniment for a cup of coffee in the morning.
