Edmundo Dantes El Conde 109
Posted: November 6, 2007
It may look like a Montecristo at first glance, but don't be fooled.
This is the Edmundo Dantes El Conde 109, the new Cuban regional-edition cigar rolled exclusively for Mexico. True, the band resembles Montecristo and the name alludes to a character in The Count of Montecristo, but the Edmundo Dantes is its own brand altogether. It is the result of a collaboration between Habanos S.A. and Max Gutmann, Habanos importer for Mexico.
Some collectors may recognize the tapered head that was modeled after the Partagas 109 cigars found in the 150th Anniversary humidor, a favorite of Gutmann's.
