There is a particular Montecristo cigar launch this summer named Montecristo Cincuenta, and it observes the 50th anniversary of Tabacalera de Garcia, Altadis U.S.A.’s cigar factory in La Romana, Dominican Republic. It is a huge cigar factory, among the world’s largest, and house to these important Dominican brands including Montecristo, Romeo y Julieta, and H. Upmann.
The anniversary smoke is supposed to start in the International Premium Cigar and Pipe Retailers trade show in June. This was previewed earlier this month in the Tobacconists’ Association of America convention in the Dominican Republic.
The 6 inch 50 ring gauge Toro can send in a slick, piano end 10-count humidor box.
Rolled having the Ecuadoran Sumatra wrapper, a Dominican binder leaf and filler tobaccos from Nicaragua and the Dominican Republic, Montecristo Cincuenta can come in 2 eye length formats. The very first edition, a 6 inch by 50 ring gauge Toro, boats at a slick, piano end 10-count humidor box. Just 8,000 boxes will probably be published.
The next variant is now a 6 inch by 52 ring gauge box-pressed figurado named Box Press No. 2. The cigar is only going to be offered in a habit 100-count humidor created by Elie Bleu, the French maker of luxury humidors and luxury lifestyle accessories.
Based on Rafael Nodal, head of product capacity at Tabacalera USA (the parent firm of Altadis), just 75 Elie Bleu humidors will probably be published. They will not be economical –every Montecristo Cincuenta Elie Bleu humidor is going to have a suggested retail price of $10,000 for your humidor and 100 cigars inside. The cost per individual cigar hasn’t yet been announced to the Cincuenta Toro or Box Press No 2.
“The MSRPs will likely be declared along with the launch in the IPCPR,” Nodal informed Cigar Aficionado.
