Cigar News: Monte by Montecristo AJ Fernandez Announced

The new Monte by Montecristo AJ Fernandez is a robust, medium to full-bodied cigar. Cloaked in a Dark Ecuadorian Habano wrapper and bound with a Corojo ‘98 binder, it delivers a stout, chocolatey aroma. A Criollo ‘98 and Piloto Cubano Dominican filler yield a nutty and caramel sweetness.

Robert Holt’s years in the making has paid off well especially for us flavor forward cigar lovers.
