The Montecristo Volume Series, an exclusive line created for Santa Clara Inc., a premium cigar distributor, is getting its second installment, The Rendezvous.
The new line uses an Ecuadorian habano 2000 wrapper, broadleaf binder and fillers from Honduras, and is made at the Flor de Copan factory in Honduras. The company describes it as “complex and well-balanced medium-bodied cigar with notes of earth, leather, cinnamon and oak.”
It is being released in three sizes:
- Montecristo Volume 2: The Rendezvous Robusto (5 x 52) — $15 (Box of 10, $150)
- Montecristo Volume 2: The Rendezvous Toro (6 x 50) — $16.10 (Box of 10, $161)
- Montecristo Volume 2: The Rendezvous Churchill (7 x 56) — $17.30 (Box of 10, $173)
According to a press release, the name comes from the chapter in the second volume of Alexandre Dumas’ “The Count of Montecristo,” where the Count of Montecristo meets Albert de Morcerf, the son of his mortal enemy, with The Count using treasure and transformation to generate awe and inspiration from de Morcerf.
“We are proud to bring this latest exclusive Montecristo to Santa Clara,” said Rafael Nodal, head of product capability for Tabacalera USA, via a press release. “The Montecristo Volume 2: The Rendezvous is a cigar as rich in history as it is in flavor.”
The Montecristo Volume Series debuted in January 2020 with Montecristo Volume 1: 100 Days.
