The first Montecristo cigar was handcrafted in 1935 using a signature blend of tobaccos, which remains the standard by which the brand still lives up to today.
Now, 85 years later, accomplishing a tribute of this magnitude required assembling a cast of some of the world’s leading tobacco experts. Working together, the famed Grupo de Maestros, Rafael Nodal and award-winning tobacco powerhouse AJ Fernandez have crafted the Montecristo 1935 Anniversary Nicaraguan. This precise and exquisite proprietary blend of aged tobaccos pays homage to the original tobaccos used in the first Montecristo cigar.
The result is an exquisite blend of the finest Nicaraguan tobaccos the region has to offer that reflect the classic characteristics, construction and balanced flavors of the original 1935 Montecristo.
