Altadis USA Introduces Montecristo New York Connoisseur Edition

Officially launched at the Cigar Aficionado Big Smoke in Manhattan, these newest Montecristo cigars are crafted from leaves carefully hand-selected and flawlessly aged at the famed Tabacalera de García in the Dominican Republic under the watchful eye of legendary cigar maker José Seijas.

Featuring a gorgeous Ecuadorian Habano wrapper, the Montecristo New York Connoisseur Edition offers the aficionado a singular blend of unique flavors seamlessly woven into a luxurious smoke that is rich, complex and deeply satisfying.

An Altadis U.S.A. spokesperson summed it up: “We created this exceptional cigar to offer the true connoisseur a captivating smoke of unparalleled complexity and sophistication.”
