If ever one brand has come to dominate a particular vitola, this is it. The classic Pirámide or ‘torpedo’ size. Easy burning with a controlled release of faithful Montecristo flavours; many devotees look no further than this.
VITOLA: Pirámide RING GAUGE: 52 LENGTH: 6 1/8 inches - 156 mm FLAVOUR: Medium to Full

VITOLA: Sobresalientes RING GAUGE: 53 LENGTH: 6 inches - 153 mm FLAVOUR: Full
The largest of the three cigars that comprises Montecristo's new linea 1935, the Leyanda delivers an abundance of rich, flavoursome smoke over the course of the house and a half or so it takes to enjoy. Not a cigar to be hurried and perhaps best enjoyed after a hearty meal.
VITOLA: Maravillas No.2 RING GAUGE: 55 LENGTH: 6 1/2 inches - 165 mm FLAVOUR: Full
Named after Alexandre Dumas’ hero Edmundo Dantes in ‘The Count of Montecristo’, the Edmundo was one of the first extra heavy gauge, parejo sizes produced in Cuba in the 21st century. Big and rewarding.

VITOLA: Aromosos RING GAUGE: 56 LENGTH: 5 1/2 inches - 140 mm FLAVOUR: Light
Perhaps this cigar would have been better named Epicure No.3 as its presentation and style of taste are identical to the Epicure 1 & 2. Introduced in 2004, it was a timely anticipation of what smokers would face with smoking bans.
VITOLA: Petit Robusto RING GAUGE: 50 LENGTH: 4 inches - 102 mm FLAVOUR: Light
