Montecristo, one of the most famous brands in the world, is made today in the Dominican Republic and Nicaragua, although it is still made in Cuba as well.
The Montecristo White Series is manufactured by Altadis USA, at its Tabacalera de Garcia factory, located in La Romana, Dominican Republic, considered the largest premium cigar factory in the world. This series is one of the most emblematic of the brand, and since its release in the market, it has been an important part of many humidors.
The blend uses a beautiful hand-selected Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper harmonized with a Nicaraguan binder and a combination of the finest Dominican and Nicaraguan long-fillers. The White Series was made to respond to the desire of the followers of Montecristo, to have a cigar with a soft-medium intensity, capable of offering them a creamier smoke, but that would remain within the standards of the abundant and rich flavor of the brand.
The cigars have a rather attractive appearance and, although the wrapper is quite smooth, it is not without veins and the occasional bump; aromas of nuts, wood, and raisins emanate from it in abundance. The large amount of smoke it produces has a creamy texture that is smooth on the palate with a fairly crisp and moderate finish. This combination is what has attracted all types of smokers to the Montecristo White Series, perhaps the most requested among the many that Montecristo offers.
It is sold and distributed in the US through Altadis U.S.A., a subsidiary of Tabacalera USA, which, in turn, is owned by British tobacco giant Imperial Brands PLC. Behind the making of Montecristo cigars, Altadis luxury brand, there are experienced masters with full knowledge of the market, the industry, and the reputation of a classic brand that, like Montecristo, demands high-quality standards to continue enjoying a recognition that is almost 100 years old.
It is interesting to note that non-Cuban versions of Montecristo have been gaining the approval of both specialized magazines and consumers in the United States, so it is easy to predict that, if one-day Cuban cigars enter the country again, they will meet a tough battle for the market that may be difficult for them to win.
