Montecristo Double Edmundo
Montecristo fans have long dreamed of larger format cigars, and with the announcement of the Double Edmundo in 2013, those dreams became a reality.
The Montecristo Double Edmundo delivers more of the signature Montecristo body and taste than any Montecristo cigars that have come before.
Montecristo Double Edmundo Overview
With the exceptions of the pyramid shape Montecristo No. 2 and lengthy Montecristo “A”, really big cigars were mostly absent from the regular Montecristo lineup. The Robusto-size Edmundo was launched in 2004 to satisfy the demand for larger ring gauge cigars. The Petite Edmundo followed, paving the way for the longer 6.1” x 50 Double Edmundo.
Cuba’s Vuelta Abajo region of the Pinar del Rio province provides the tobacco for Montecristo Double Edmundo. The larger size means the richness and complexity of the tobaccos have more time to evolve during the smoke, making for an experience that offers more body, more taste, and just more of everything. It’s intense and not for beginners, but that’s part of the appeal to many.
Smoking a Montecristo Double Edmundo
The Double Edmundo’s savory tobacco blend and larger size combine for a highly entertaining sensory escape. The complex cigar body and taste unveil secrets throughout a smoke best enjoyed without time constraints.
Montecristo Double Edmundo Appearance
The Double Edmundo is a handsome cigar covered in a dark and leathery Colorado wrapper leaf with Cuba’s famous triple cap.
The cigar’s appealing look matches the tobacco’s aromas and cold draw notes of coffee, oatmeal, chocolate, earth, and cedar
Montecristo Double Edmundo Aroma
During and after the cigar lighting process, the cigar’s initial aroma intensifies and is joined by scents of nuts, mocha, and honey, transported by thick plumes of smoke.
Montecristo Double Edmundo Body and Taste
An easy-going medium-bodied start gradually builds towards medium-full with flavors of hazelnut coffee, toasted oak, cocoa bean, pepper, leather, spice, and blackberry. A steady earthiness keeps the smoke balanced and lively throughout the experience.
Montecristo Double Edmundo Finish
The Double Edmundo’s body and taste continue to grow as it nears the end. This is a cigar you want to smoke right to the end, a journey of well over an hour. The finish is bursting with the full spectrum of flavors, a complex and satisfying finale.
The Montecristo Double Edmundo smokes unlike any other Montecristo and is ideal for the sophisticated aficionado with an affinity for large-format Cuban cigars.
Montecristo Double Edmundo Cigar Value
Are Montecristo Double Edmundo cigars cheap? No. But these cigars are far from the most expensive Cuban cigars and offer a lot of smoking time for your money. The Double Edmundo’s larger size simply delivers more of the legendary Montecristo character than any other.

I smoked most of a box of these closer to when they were released. The wrappers were lighter than usual than expected from a typical Monte. They were relatively bland offering a weak profile with minimum flavor. I just purchased another box and the first thing I noticed was the wrappers were darker and reminded me more or less of a typical Monte. Before I smoked the first of the new batch I pulled one I had saved to compare. Already after a few months in my humidor I tasted enriched flavors. The burn was ok and the draw still a little loose. So I pulled out one from the new batch. The wrapper looked darker and more familiar and it wasn’t to spongy or tight. Right out of the gate I noticed the difference in the complexity form the first batch. A light spice some toast and woody flavors and a light creaminess and taste of nuts. A good cigar as it sits now but will look forward to enhanced flavors from aging in my box
smooth cigar Very good smooth cigar. Construction was very good nice wrapper steady burn. Montecristo Double Edmundo is my favorite cigar so far. Thanks Luxury Cubans for great product!
This excellent cigar is consistently well rolled, providing a fine draw, a broad range of flavors and a rich flow of smoke.
Delivery was better than before; cigars were fresh and in good condition. Good job.
I have left a voicemail as well as sent an email last week. I hav NOT received my order ???
nice cigar i have smoke and ales good condition i revived
pleasant smoke good, but not great especially if you’re a Monte #2 fan. But definitely worth the smoke!
I was very pleased with the quality of the product and its timely delivery.
Full rich flavor. A most have for the cigar aficionados.
I purchased a single to try out. It arrived in excellent condition. Flavor is great, nice and tasty. Nothing to complain about but the Montecristo #2’s are still my favorite. Hope they come back in stock soon.
I have been smoking these a few years now and enjoy it more and more every time.
Fast delivery. Perfect condition. Great cigars.
Picked up a couple of these from luxury Cubans, and I want to order more!
This is an incredible stick with lots of cedar notes, milk chocolate, and is super smooth. Reminds me a lot of the Monte No.2
Delivery was on time and packaged nice. Sat in my humidor for 2 weeks and smokes very nice. The flavor is good, and so is the aroma. Good cigar. Can’t wait until more are available. They keep selling out.
Very Good Cigar…Needs a Little Aging
Great shipping and communication. Top notch product matching my humidor Cubans of the same Double Edmondo’s. Nice cigar, good flavor and fresh. Nice even burn. extremely satisfied.
This box of double Emundos arrived in perfect, unformed color and construction. Being a huge fan of Edmundos, bought a 3 pack of double Edmundos to test them out in duty free a while back and wasn’t disappointed. So I went for the entire box of 25.
As a beginner, I tried as many as I can! Great Condition when I received it
Received my order after 12 days, very satisfied. The cigars are genuine and very well packed. Thank you Luxury Cabans
My favourite cigar and it arrived before scheduled and in mint condition!
These get better with age. Yahoo
Love the MC Double Edmundo. But does anyone else notice frequent knots at the halfway or last third point in the cigars? Thanks to Bill who provided excellent customer service.
cigars are great be patient the delivery time was close to 3 weeks. I will be ordering again soon.
Cigars were excellent!
Very good cigar. Not quite as good as the Montecristo #2 but definitely a solid alternative and great smoke.
Can be considered a harsh cigar for new smokers but overall a very good flavorful cigar to the very end. Smoke with a glass of your favorite whiskey or cognac.
