Altadis U.S.A. has a new small format Montecristo.

The company has begun shipping the Montecristo Classic Mini Cigarillo, a 2 7/8 x 20 cigarillos vitola, in tins of 20. The cigar uses the same Connecticut shade wrapper and Dominican binder as the traditional Dominican Montecristo.

“The idea for a Montecristo Mini Cigarillo comes from our desire for a quality cigar experience even when time is short,” said Eddy Guerra, senior brand manager for Altadis U.S.A., in a press release. “I really look forward to enjoying this product when sipping my Café Con Leche coffee after my lunch break, for example. Just because you don’t have a lot of time, doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy a beautiful cigar experience.”

Pricing is set at $13.75 per tin of 20.

Altadis U.S.A. makes a slightly larger Montecristo cigarillo, the Montecristo Habanitos at 3 5/8 x 24. Habanos S.A. also makes the Cuban Montecristo Minis at 3 1/4 x 20.
