The Montecristo No.5 is an amazing Perla vitola, measuring 102mm in length with a 40 ring gauge; one of the smallest Montecristo proposals.
The numbered series is the line of cigars launched by Montecristo in 1935. They are hand rolled and filled with the finest tobacco leaves from the Pinar del Rio region of Cuba. They are then aged for two years before being released, making them an excellent smoke right out of the box.
Despite the compact size, the No.5 provides a mild-medium smoke with a mix of cocoa, toasted coffee bean and vanilla aromas and a dash of spicy and floral notes.
Its simple, yet rich and balanced profile, makes it an excellent option for novice smokers and aficionados alike.

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.
