    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 Monte’s launched in 2013 it took a while for those in the know to catch on. Where most Dominican Montecristos are mild-medium, with Connecticut-seed wrappers, the box pressed Monte edition is blended with an Ecuadorian wrapper, Dominican long fillers and binder leaves from the Dominican and Nicaragua. The result is a well balanced medium-full bodied stick with a Cuban styled spice to light up your palate. In 2015 , when the #2 size pulled a 94 rating and was named one of the top 25 cigars of 2015, the secret was out.
