The Montecristo No. 4 is unrivalled in consistency and worldwide sales. For any lover of quality, this is the go–to cigar. In terms of popularity and flavour, this truly is the benchmark against which all other cigars are judged...
As the name suggests, the Montecristo No.4 was the fourth in the initial Montecristo Cigars range created by the Alonso Menendez Company in the 1940s. The name Montecristo comes from the hero of the famous novel ‘The Count of Montecristo’. During the 1970s and 1980s this range of cigars grew in popularity and quickly became one of Cuba’s top lines.
Nowadays, it’s the most popular handmade cigar in the world. The construction is firm and well made – as expected from a fine Cuban cigar – and it requires a minimum ageing time of at least three years.
When lit, the cigar produces a smooth and lush smoke, pungent with the scents of roasted-coffee, caramel, vanilla and cocoa, which blends seamlessly with the medium-strength tobacco. This cigar is not too full-bodied but not too light, providing a perfect combination. It offers so much flavour without being too overwhelming or sharp, making it perfect for novice smokers too.
