Please help me identify this Montecristo

A year ago I bought a 10 pack of montecristo cigars from the CI superstore in PA. The band was identical to the traditional brown band like this:

except the fluer-de-lis was red instead of white. I'd like to resupply, but I can't find it anywhere. I believe the cigar was a double corono or a lonsdale. It had a Connecticut wrapper. Does anyone know what this cigar was/is?

Well, after an exhaustive internet search by typing in "Montecristo Red" , I was finally able to unearth some information...

Under $4 at El Diablo’s.

huh. i'm surprised it isn't on the Montecristo website. Perhaps rolled for a particular retailer. Thanks.

I used to get those in a Dominican sampler from jrs when I first started smoking cigars I still have a bunch of them I always wondered what the difference was because they tasted the same as the other one I thought it was just a band change

More cigars = less stress

If you like them and got a deal that's all that matters. I generally avoid cigars from the Altadis portfolio of cigar brands...


The name you are paying for, as for the smoke if you find it pleasant I'd shop around for bundles and seconds because the non Cuban Montecristo is just a cute little marketed brand.


Again if you enjoy them great. But as your spiritual cigar advisor I'd say seek the non branded alternatives because they will be of comparable tobacco blends for less money
