The Montecristo brand dates back to 1935, and one of its original sizes, the Montecristo No. 2, remains one of the world's most popular cigars. (It was also Cigar Aficionado's Cigar of the Year for 2013.) Sometimes old brands, successful or otherwise, could use some changes to add excitement, so Cuba's Habanos S.A. created the Edmundo line extention to Montecristo in 2004. Fat and distinctive, Edmundo was an immediate hit, prompting new sizes such as the short and plump Petit Edmundo in early 2007 and this Double Edmundo (which is longer, but not fatter, than the Edmundo) in 2013. With gorgeous color, hints of oak and leather, the cigar seems to get better with each puff, culminating in a chocolatey finish.

Montecristo is the best known and probably the most appreciated brand of Habanos throughout the world. It forms the benchmark for many Habanos smokers against which other brands are judged.

The name comes from the hero of Alexandre Dumas’ famous novel ‘The Count of Montecristo’, which was a firm favourite when read by the Lector to the Torcedores (cigar makers) at the factory where it was founded in 1935.

The original Montecristo range of sizes was composed of a narrow assortment numbered from 1 to 5.  Today it consists of a wide variety of vitolas to cover every level of the cigar enthusiast’s needs.  In 2004 the 52 ring gauge Edmundo size was introduced in recognition of the trend for heavy gauge sizes, and a shorter version, the Petit Edmundo, followed two years later.  Why Edmundo? It is the first name of Edmundo Dantes, the hero of Dumas’ novel.
