Introducing the newest addition to Montecristo’s core portfolio: Montecristo Nicaragua Series.
The robust collaboration combines the craft of today’s most revered premium cigar maker, A.J. Fernandez, with one of the world’s most iconic cigar labels, the Montecristo brand! This incredible new offering debuted at the 2018 IPCPR tradeshow in Las Vegas as Montecristo’s most prolific new offering— garnering much buzz around the annual expo of cigar enthusiasts.
Aside from being produced in association with one of the industry’s leading cigar makers, the Montecristo Nicaragua Series took notice for being a full-production series for the brand, serving as the fifth addition of Montecristo’s core lineup— holding the unique distinction of being the first collaborative release to join the popular Montecristo Classic, White Series, Original and the Montecristo Platinum Series in the core lineup of non-Cuban Montecristo cigars.
Following in the success of the tandem’s previous premium release, the top-selling Monte by Montecristo A.J. Fernandez, the Montecristo Nicaragua Series is a full-bodied Nicaraguan puro, crafted by A.J. Fernández and produced at Tabacalera A.J. Fernández Cigars de Nicaragua S.A., in Estelí, Nicaragua. The release uses only hand-selected Nicaraguan tobaccos for its wrapper, binder and filler blend, culminating in a luxurious new extension of the time-honored brand.
Each Montecristo Nicaragua Series cigar is impeccably crafted by hand, and is adorned with an eye-catching black band that features the brand’s iconic fleur de lis logo. In the spirit of Montecristo’s other core offerings, Montecristo Nicaragua Series cigars will wear an additional second band, letting smokers know the distinction of their premium cigar selection.
Montecristo Nicaragua Series promises to be one of the most exciting releases of 2018, and a staple of the brand’s renowned portfolio for years to come. The lineup comes presented in four hefty vitolas, perfect for big-ring enthusiasts: 54 x 5” Robusto, 54 x 6” Toro, 52 x 6.125” No. 2, and a 56 x 7” Churchill—with each variety packaged in attractive 20-count boxes. Each Montecristo Nicaragua Series Cigar features an MSRP of $11.75 – $13.70, and is available now at Casa de Montecristo!
