Montecristo – Purito’s 5’s
Montecristo is the best known and probably most appreciated brand of Habanos throughout the world. It forms the benchmark for many Habanos smokers against which other brands are judged.
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.
The original Montecristo range of sizes was composed of a narrow assortment numbered from 1 to 5. Today it consists of a wide variety of vitolas to cover every level of the cigar enthusiast’s needs.
The cigars are individually wrapped in protective cellophane to help maintain their perfect smoking condition. Machine-made in Cuba. Tobacco originates from the same family as Cuban Minis and like them contain only the finest tobacco grown in the Vuelta Abajo region of Cuba, the best tobacco-growing land in the world.
