In 1935, a cigar maker named Alonso Melendez purchased a ‘particulares’ factory. How Melendez came up with the name sounds like it comes straight from a storybook, thatâ€™s because it does. Many of the cigar rollers in the factory happened to be illiterate. As a means of trying to increase productivity, a book was read aloud to the workers. There happened to be one book that proved extremely popular by the cigar rollers. That book was called â€œThe Count of Monte Cristoâ€ by Alexander Dumas. The book that each cigar roller loved is how the Montecristo name was born. The Montecristo No.4 cigar is the most popular and sought-after. Their earthy and rich flavour is what draws people in time and time again.
Copa Habana allows you to experience that same feeling with the Montecristo line.
