The Montecristo A is a Gran Corona vitola, the largest in regular production. Measuring 235mm with a 47 ring gauge, this rarity impresses for its unusual size and elegance. 

Producing the Montecristo A isn't easy; it requires a large enough tobacco leaf to wrap the roll in its entirety and an exceptionally skilled 'Torcedor', to be able to fully wrap the binder and filler to an unusual length.

Long and fine, this gigante offers an aromatic profile of earth and undergrowth notes. The second third, rounder, offers nice creamy puffs, supported by cocoa touches.

This is a complex smoke, meant for a seasoned smoker who can dedicate the time and patience to allow it to unfold and fully appreciate this 2 hours smoking experience.

Montecristo is one of the most recognized Habanos brands in the world; its Montecristo No.4 being the best-selling Habano in the market. Its name is clearly an homage to the Dumas’ novel “The Count of Monte Cristo”. The tobacco store reader used to read the novel to the Torcedores (cigar makers) at the H.Upmann factory in Havana, where the brand was founded in 1935. Such was the acceptance that it was decided to give the name of the novel’s protagonist to the new brand. Although initially it was composed by five unique vitolas, numbered from 1 to 5, the brand progressively completed an offer that currently covers the tastes of the most demanding smokers, from the majestic Montecristo A, to smaller formats. With its distinguished aroma and its long filler vitolas, made exclusively with leaves from the Vuelta Abajo zone, this brand has captivated both experienced smokers and those new to the world of Habano.
