  • Montecristo White


    When this Cuban brand was launched in 1935, the world of Premium Cigars changed forever. Their #2 Torpedo became the world’s biggest selling cigar. I’ve had a few of them over the years and can honestly say they were ok. But that’s just me.

    Altadis acquired this iconic name decades ago and began producing many sizes and styles available to all of us. When this edition appeared in 2017, an entire new group of smokers discovered this brand for the first time. Many of those folks that gravitated to mild to mellow tasting cigars now had a Montecristo to call their own. The addition of tamer Nicaraguan fillers with Dominican leaves and encasing it with an Ecuadorian grown Connecticut seed wrapper yields a smooth, lighter smoke with a tiny bit of crispy spice that’s enjoyable for everyone. The Court corona sized tubes are one of my favorites.

    Macanudo Cafe


    Literally everyone knows the name. What most folks don’t know is that Macanudo was originally the name of a brand style made in Guatemala by the makers of the Punch Cuban cigars . In 1971, General Cigar, which had acquired rights to the name outside of Cuba, introduced Macanudo as a stand alone brand and the rest is cigar history! It was originally made on the Island of Jamaica under the supervision of Master Blender, Ramón Cifuentes, a veteran of Cuban cigar maker Partagas. Production shifted from Jamaica to the Dominican Republic in October 2000 where it remains.

    It’s hard to believe that a handmade product can remain so well made and impeccably consistent for almost 50 years. The proprietary, selected blend of these cigars is a benchmark for the overused term, mild. Yes, they’re mild but also have a smooth and crispy character that has been universally accepted by millions of smokers. Over the years I have recommended the 8 count box of Glass Tubed Crystal Cafes more times than I can remember.
