Montecristo Open Master – Singles
Length 4 7/8″ or 124 mm by 50 ring gauge. Robusto size.
The most popular Cuban cigar on the market. Medium flavour. At last this popular size is included as a standard size in Montecristo’s range. A good 40-minute smoke, medium strength, typical of this new lighter range of Montecristo.
2009 saw the introduction of a new Series, Montecristo Open, consisting of four sizes blended to a lighter flavour than other sizes in Montecristo’s range and aimed at a new generation of smokers, who enjoy the pleasures of outdoor pursuits.
Introduced in 1935 by the H. Upmann factory, Montecristo appeared first in just sizes described by numbers not names. The name comes from the hero of Alexandre Dumas’ famous novel ‘The Count of Montecristo’, which was a firm favourite when read by the Lector to the Torcedores (cigar makers) at the factory where it was founded in 1935.
Montecristo’s perfectly balanced blends are created exclusively with selected filler and binder leaves from the Vuelta Abajo zone, home of the finest tobaccos in the world. Both its original medium to full taste and medium flavour found in the Open Series offer a distinguished aroma and appeal equally to new and experienced smokers.
All sizes are ‘Tripa larga, Totalmente a Mano’ – long filler, totally hand made.
