The Habanos Festival is underway this week and as cigar smokers from around the world make their way to Havana, thanks to the Internet we are already hearing new cigars that are being announced.
We are hearing that Montecristo (one of our favourite brands) are releasing a Petit Number 2 and a Double Edmundo.
At last, all the joy of a number 2 in a smaller cigar which can be enjoyed in the UK, and all the goodness of an Edmundo doubled up into a Montecristo Double Edmundo so there is more to enjoy.
Completely rolled by hand with long filler, the ring gauge will catch on among smokers because of the easy grip and good burn that makes each puff a thrilling moment. For its part, the midsize length enables us to love every minute of it.
The exquisite blend of tobacco, exclusively rolled with filler and binder leaves hailing from Vuelta Abajo, guarantees faithfulness to the original Linea Clasica’s mild-to-strong taste and captivating scent that enthral both seasoned smokers and those who are now cutting their teeth in the realm of Habanos.
The Edmundo line grows on with the coming of Double Edmundo, also featuring the new Montecristo band and bigger size. This Habano of Dobles factory vitola delivers this blend’s classic scent and taste for approximately a one-hour-long smoke.
Though featuring thinner ring gauge –large enough the delight passionate smokers- its length guarantees slow pleasure and intimate contact between smoke and spirit. In a word, this is a great opportunity to grab all the taste Montecristo has to offer… unhurriedly.
There have been screams of excitement at CTC towers today with this news as the number 2 and Edmundo are some of our all-time favourite cigars so we will be buying as soon as these cigars hit UK stores… or whenever we get to Cuba (whichever comes quicker)
As soon as we get our hands on them we’ll post a video review
