The Montecristo Supremos is the first of the much anticipated 2019 Habanos Limited Editions 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) with a ring gauge of 55. This size is known as a Montesco in the factories of Cuba.
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, so this release seems sure to satisfy smokers who prefer heavy ring gauges.
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.
