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.

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.
Montecristo's perfectly balanced blends are created exclusively with selected filler and binder leaves from the Vuelta Abajo zone, home of the finest tobaccos in the world.

In 2009 the Montecristo Robusto was revisited once again when the lighter styled Montecristo Open Master was introduced to the standard portfolio.
