TASTING NOTES: One of the most awaited announcements
during this year’s Habanos Festival was the introduction of
a new series in the original Montecristo family.
Although there has been a number of new sizes in the Montecristo
brand, it has been 74 years since the last new line came out.
The new cigars, called Open, will be easy to recognize as they’re all equipped with a second green band under the usual Montecristo band. The second band has two golden strokes, the golden Open label and white name printed on it. The cigars are targeted mainly at the occasional smokers, who are only smoking cigars during special events like celebrations or other free-time activities. Habanos would like to get them more involved in the cigar culture.
