Created in 1935 in Havana by Menendez Garcia y Cia., Montecristo is a mainstay of the Cuban cigar portfolio. From the diminutive and ubiquitous Montecristo No. 4 to the stately and shapely Montecristo No. 2 (a former Cigar Aficionado Cigar of the Year), Montecristos have a wide variety of sizes and flavor profiles. Newer additions include the Edmundo Series and Montecristo Open, and in February 2017 Habanos announced the creation of Montecristo Linea 1935.
