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.
