NAME: Edmundo Dantes Conde Belicosos (Mexico) 2016 n-10
PRESENTATION: The Edmundo Dantes Conde Belicoso is a 5 1/2 inches (140 mm) long figurado with a 52 ring gauge, a well-known vitola called the Campanas that is shared with such popular cigars as the Bolívar Belicoso Fino, Sancho Panza Belicosos and Romeo y Julieta Belicosos.
The Edmundo Dantes marca can be traced to 2007, when Max Gutmann, owner of IEPT, released an Edición Regional under the Edmundo Dantes name, the Conde 109, a 7 1/5 x 50 double Robusto with the signature 109 head. While it looks quite similar to the Montecristo brand, and Edmond Dantès is the central character in The Count of Montecristo, it is not because of a copyright issue with the Montecristo name in Mexico, as that brand is sold throughout the country. Rather, it is its own distinct brand and blend, though limited to retailers in Mexico.
A second Edición Regional, the Conde 54, was released in 2011. It was another double Robusto measuring 6 1/2 x 54, though in a standard parejo vitola.
