Montecristo White Vintage Connecticut

Montecristo White Vintage Connecticut

“Cigar fans with a taste for Connecticut shade wrappers have a new, vintage-dated brand to look forward to. Altadis U.S.A. Inc., one of the world’s largest premium cigar makers has developed a cigar called Montecristo White Vintage Connecticut, and it features a Connecticut shade wrapper from a 2008 tobacco harvest, grown under mesh screens in the sandy loam of the Connecticut River Valley.

As the brand name suggests, the new cigar has original familial roots in the Montecristo White line of cigars, with a similar blend profile, albeit with a few significant tweaks. The wrapper for instance, is more akin to the Montecristo Classic line (Montecristo White uses an Ecuadoran Connecticut seed wrapper, while Montecristo Classic has a Connecticut shade wrapper grown in the United States—but without a specific vintage year). Along with Vintage Connecticut’s 2008 shade-grown wrapper, the cigar consists of a Nicaraguan binder with fillers from the Dominican Republic, Nicaragua and Peru. It’s made at the Tabacalera de Garcia factory in La Romana, the Dominican Republic, where most Montcristo cigars are produced.”
