Montecristo is considered the most popular brand of Cuban cigars, and after smoking one of these, you’ll soon see why.
The Montecristo range contains the Montecristo No. 2, which is the most highly rated cigar from Cuba’s standard production, while the Montecristo No. 4 is widely considered to be the most popular Cuban cigar in the world, as it is a consistent bestseller.
The Montecristo brand is part of Habanos S.A., which owns and distributes all of the cigar brands in Cuba. They are sent over to the UK from Cuba and are checked and provided with a quality control EMS stamp when they arrive to ensure the smoke you get is perfect.
At Havana House, we also perform our own quality checks on the cigars we sell, so you can rest assured that the cigar you receive is a genuine Cuban smoke.
