Habanos SA releases the Montecristo Open line

Habanos SA launched their new extension line to the Montecristo brand, called the Montecristo Open, earlier this year, and the Vancouver Cigar Company is happy to announce that we have received our first boxes.  With an overall Golf theme behind the Open line, each cigar is banded with the signature brown/cream Montecristo label, and also with a new green label with gold type. Each size comes in boxes of 25.

The Montecristo Open line consists of 4 new sizes: the Eagle at a large 5 7/8″ x 54 is similar in size to the Cohiba Siglo VI but slightly thicker, the Master at 4 7/8″ x 50 is basically a robusto-sized cigar, the Regata is 5 1/3″ x 46 and has a tapered end making it a thin belicoso, and lastly, the Junior is a quick 4 1/3″ x 38.

The intention of Habanos in launching the Montecristo Open line is to attract a new, young affluent clientele who enjoy the finer things in life, including sailing, golf, and of course smoking fine Cuban cigars. The Montecristo Open blend has a slightly milder flavor than the regular Monte’s, and early reviews indicate that they tend to burn faster, and with more smoke that many other Cubans. It is a great new concept by Habanos to encourage us all to enjoy our smokes in nature’s Open places.
