Being arguably the most recognizable cigar brand in history, it's safe to say Montecristo has a smoking experience for every palate. On the more soft and nuanced end of the spectrum lies the Montecristo White collection, beginning with the Montecristo White Series and later evolving to include the exquisite Montecristo White Vintage Connecticut cigar.
This luxurious smoke begins with an increasingly rare tobacco ingredient: authentic Connecticut Shade. While the majority of today's Connecticuts are harvested in Ecuador, the Montecristo White Vintage Connecticut cigar features a vintage Connecticut wrapper that is exclusive to Montecristo, being grown on the company's own fields in the Connecticut River Valley. This aged leaf is exceptionally smooth in both taste and appearance, accentuating the cigar's Nicaraguan binder and multinational fillers of Nicaragua, the Dominican Republic, and Peru.
What does the Montecristo White Vintage Connecticut cigar taste like?
Like buddah, that's what this epicurean showstopper tastes like! The Montecristo White Vintage Connecticut cigar kicks off with a mild to medium intensity, soothing the palate with standout characteristics of clean cedar, citrus, touches of bitter hay, aromatic sage, and semi-sweet table cream through the finish.
