The Montecristo Volume Series – an exclusive for premium cigar distributor Santa Clara – is inspiring awe and excitement with its latest offering, in keeping with the brand’s namesake, the legendary novel “The Count of Monte Cristo” by Alexandre Dumas.
This latest addition,the Montecristo Volume 2: The Rendezvous, takes its name from a chapter in the second volume of the Dumas book in which the Count of Montecristo meets Albert de Morcerf, the son of his mortal enemy. The Count uses treasure and transformation to generate awe and inspiration from de Morcerf. Santa Clara’s latest offering from this iconic brand will surely amaze adult cigar consumers as well.
“We are proud to bring this latest exclusive Montecristo to Santa Clara,” said Rafael Nodal, Head of Product Capability for Tabacalera USA “The Montecristo Volume 2: The Rendezvous is a cigar as rich in history as it is in flavor.”
Handcrafted at the Flor de Copan factory in Honduras, the Volume 2 uses Honduran long filler tobaccos, a rich broadleaf binder and an Ecuadorian seed Habano 2000 wrapper. The result is a complex and well-balanced medium-bodied cigar with notes of earth, leather, cinnamon and oak. “With a $15.00 – $17.30 suggested retail price, retailers will be hard-pressed to find a better luxury cigar with such great margins and profit potential,” said David Joyce, director of wholesale operations for Santa Clara.
The Montecristo Volume 2: The Rendevous is available in three classic sizes:
5×52 Robusto (Box of 10)
6×50 Toro (Box of 10)
7×56 Churchill (Box of 10)
