This year marks both the 85th anniversary of the Montecristo marca and the 30th anniversary of the La Casa del Habano brand. And Habanos S.A. has one cigar to honor both anniversaries: the Montecristo Herederos.
The Montecristo Herederos is a 6 3/8 (162mm) x 47 parejo that will be sold in humidors of 20, exclusively at La Casa del habano stores around the world. As is the case with many LCDH-exclusive releases, the cigar will feature a secondary band marking that it is an exclusive release for the LCDH franchises.
La Casa del Habano is a special designation given to select stores around the world, currently around 90. These stores are considered by Habanos S.A. to be premier retailers of Cuban cigars in their respective regions. Stores carrying the designation are required to meet an extensive list of qualifications, including have ample amounts of aged stock. In return, they are able to use the LCDH name, get access to exclusive LCDH product and are guaranteed to get the first shipments of new releases in their respective countries.
