MONTECRISTO MALTES One of the fine new cigars out for 2018 in the Montecristo line. Only the finest quality of tobacco goes into these special edition cigars to celebrate the brand’s creation in 1935. These came out in 2015 but only more recently have become more readily available. Super smooth and full in this chunky cigar, they are a lovely cigar for the BBQ seasons.
The Ecuadorian Sumatra wrapper of the Montecristo MALTES has a medium brown color. On the surface is a light coating of oil on it. This is a smooth wrapper with any visible veins on the thin side and the wrapper seams barely visible.
The primary band of the Montecristo MALTES consists of the classic Montecristo brown band. On this band is a gold fleur-de-lis surrounded by a white ring. Above the white ring is the text “MONTECRISTO” in white text. There is an outer gold ring surrounding the white ring and text. The remainder of the band contains gold and white adornments.
There is a secondary band made of cloth and white in color. On the band is the text ” SUPERMOS” in the dark brown font. To the left of the text is a dark brown star. Below the text is the “55/250” in red font. This indicates that the cigars I smoked were from box #55 of the 250 box allocation.
