If you've been searching the globe for that one missing Edición Limitada from last year—the Montecristo Dantes—Habanos S.A. just announced that it will be arriving to "different points of sales worldwide in the coming weeks."
Though the term "coming weeks" is a bit vague, it's safe to say that these 6 5/8 inch by 48 ring gauge cigars are on their way. Called Hermosos No. 1 in Cuban cigar factories, the Dantes come packaged in 10-count boxes.
The official press release, however, is a bit curious, as it not only announced the release of the elusive Montecristo Dantes, but also the Trinidad Topes and the Romeo y Julieta Capuletos. Both have been available in the global market for months. And both the Trinidad and the Romeo y Julieta have been rated by either Cigar Aficionado or Cigar Insider.
Habanos characterizes the Montecristo Dantes as being medium to full bodied in strength.
