Habanos Limited Editions are highly appreciated and anticipated by cigar enthusiasts every year, and even more so when this is a new vitolafrom one of the world’s benchmark Habano brands.
The Montecristo Supremos is the first of the much anticipated 2019 Habanos Limited Edition to be released in the UK. It is presented in a bespoke, Montecristo yellow box of 25 cigars and shares it’s dimensions with the ever-popular Romeo y Julieta Wide Churchill, measuring 5 ¼” (130mm) and with a ring gauge of 55.
This is the 10th time that Montecristo, the world’s best selling Havana brand, has been called upon to produce a prestigious Limited Edition and no other brand has produced more.
Within the Limited Edition series, which began in 2000 and can now boast of having over 60 releases, there are just three cigars with a larger diameter than the Montecristo Supremos.
This medium to full bodied cigar provides an hour or so of the classic ‘tangy’ Montecristo taste, with the dark wrapper providing a slightly sweet top taste to the blend and the extra ageing of all the leaves ensuring a rounded, smooth smoke.
FLAVOUR: Medium to Full VITOLA: RING GAUGE: 55 LENGTH: 5 1/4 Inches
The first and so far only time that Cuaba has been selected to produce a Limited Edition and, in a move that surprised many, the first time a Cuaba was produced that was not in the double figurado shape. A collectors idem for sure.
FLAVOUR: Medium to Full VITOLA: Piramide RING GAUGE: 52 LENGTH: 6 1/8 Inches / 156mm
An exceptionally well-balanced and rewarding cigar that delivers the medium to full bodied flavour associated with the Linea Classica, but is framed with a sweet top-taste from the aged wrapper. A delicious hour and a quarter of smoking pleasure.
FLAVOUR: Medium to Full VITOLA: Prominente RING GAUGE: 49 LENGTH: 7 5/8 Inches / 194mm
This is a remaking of one of the original Limited Editions from 2000. Full of ‘tangy’ Montecristo flavour in what has become the World’s most popular Havana cigar size. In 2009 the Montecristo Robusto was revisited once again when the lighter styled Montecristo Open Master was introduced to the standard portfolio.
FLAVOUR: Medium to Full VITOLA: Robusto RING GAUGE: 50 LENGTH: 4 7/8 Inches / 124mm
This was an entirely new size within the Habanos portfolio and was created to commemorate the 520th anniversary of the arrival of the Habano in Europe following Christopher Columbus’s discovery of Cuba in 1492. Montecristo was a fitting brand to choose given that it was and still is the best selling premium cigar brand today.
FLAVOUR: Medium to Full VITOLA: Maravillas No.3 RING GAUGE: 55 LENGTH: 6 1/8 Inches / 155mm
An eye-catching, blockbuster of a cigar that has a subtlety and nuance in the blend that belies its shape. A hugely popular cigar from the minute it arrived in the UK and with a 58 ring gauge, remains the widest Limited Edition ever produced.
FLAVOUR: Medium to Full VITOLA: Magnifico RING GAUGE: 58 LENGTH: 5 Inches / 127mm
Not strictly a Limited Edition as the tobaccos are not aged in the same way, the cigars are not dressed with maduro wrappers and they are not adorned with the second band. Nonetheless it is a fantastic cigar and a great way to mark the 80th anniversary of the world’s most popular Havana brand. This cigar is already a collector’s item and is, unusually, presented in boxes of 20.
FLAVOUR: Medium to Full VITOLA: 80 Aniversario RING GAUGE: 55 LENGTH: 6 ½ Inches / 165mm
A marked difference in shape from recent Limited Editions from Montecristo and, although it still has a ring gauge of 48, it has a decidedly slender feel to it. Nonetheless, all of the peppery tang associated with the brand very much remain in place.
FLAVOUR: Medium to Full VITOLA: Hermoso No.1 RING GAUGE: 48 LENGTH: 6 ⅝ Inches / 167mm
