Montecristo Craft Cured Headed To Retail

Montecristo Craft Cured, a new blend from Altadis USA that is said to wear an 11-year-old wrapper, is now on its way to cigar stores.

The cigars began shipping yesterday, though they were initially scheduled to ship mid-December. The three sizes—measuring 5 inches by 52 ring gauge, 6 by 52, and 6 1/8 by 52—come in boxes of 10 and cost between $14.65 and $16.50 per cigar.

The all-Nicaraguan Craft Cured is made by the Plasencia family using a wrapper leaf grown in 2006, binder tobacco from the island of Ometepe and filler from Estelí, Jalapa and Condega.
