The Montecristo line is all about history and tradition. When you have such a long storied brand, it makes sense to pay homage to the people who helped create what you are. In 2016, Altadis USA decided to craft a premium smoke that would take its name from the family that has cultivated their brilliant and legendary Dominican tobacco. It has become one of their signature lines and helped propel the company even further into the modern era.

 The Mendez family is one of the most respected tobacco growers in the Dominican Republic. They are responsible for most of the Dominican tobaccos used in Altadis USA cigars, including Montecristos. The Montecristo Pilotico uses an array of filler and binder tobaccos including the legendary Pilitocio strand of Cuban seed Dominican tobacco grown at the Mendez farm. The finishing touch is an exquisite Ecuadorian Sumatra wrapper.

 This complex, medium to full body smoke has wonderful notes of leather, cocoa, pepper, cedar and sweet spice. It has a smooth, nutty aroma and top notch construction, as any Montecristo does. They come in 3 sizes and are packed in wood and leather boxes. The outstanding Montecristo Pilotico is available right now at Serious Cigars.
