Montecristo Open Cigars

Montecristo Open

A New addition to the Montecristo Range

Hello,
Looking for a cigar?
Because we offer such a wide range, let's have a look at the choices.


Now, what sort of cigar do you have in mind?

"Inside the Humidor", Sizes range from the very large Double Corona or Churchill, through Corona Extra or Robusto, to the standard Corona, Petit Corona, Half Corona and Demitasse.
It all depends on when (and where) you're going to smoke.

Time: That Churchill may look inviting but if you only have 20/30 minutes available you will have to rush it and abuse all the nuances of this wonderful cigar. It will smoke bitter, harsh and hot if smoked too fast.
For such a short time a Half Corona may be a better choice.
When in doubt about the size for the length of time available choose shorter, not necessarily thinner. A long thin cigar should
actually take longer to smoke than a short thick one.

An option - If you don't have the time to finish your cigar comfortably, and it is still enjoyable, then "Doggie bag" it.
Cut it off just below the ashline (for cleanliness), blow through it (to expel remaining smoke), and put it in a tube (or wrap it) to complete the enjoyment later.

Occasion: For many, a Cuban cigar is too heavy for the morning or before a meal. This was also
evident at some blind tastings. When the anonymous cigars were smoked early in the evening,
the lighter Dominican cigars achieved high ratings, whereas when the blind tastings were after
some food and a preliminary cigar, the rich Cubans rated high on the score card.
When in doubt choose lighter, not necessarily shorter or smaller.
Amongst the cigars in the humidor you will find the light, mellow cigars typical of the Dominican
Republic, and the richer Honduran or matured Maduro cigars.

Price
: Such a range - from a relatively inexpensive single Dutch or bundled Cuban cigar,
to the luxurious Cohiba Esplendidos.
And there are substantial savings when you buy a box or bundle.

Try a variety - different brands in the same size, or different sizes of the same type.
See our packs of selections. Keep visiting -  they change regularly.
Enjoy experimenting.

Checklist for preserving your Cigars

"Outside the humidor" there is a comprehensive range of the smaller Cheroots.
There is a time, place and item for everything in life. Cheroots are no exception.
They can fill empty minutes, accompany a cup of coffee, follow a light meal or avoid Road Rage.
In the heydays of the Carlton Centre I used to enjoy a medium cigarillo on my 15/20 minutes drive home.
Under the new restrictive laws this would still be permissible.

Special Matches Thicker, longer - ideal for lighting cigars
