Edited: Mar 25, 2017

Product Information:

With its rich history and reputation, Montecristo has become one of the most popular cigars in the world and the standard by which all other cigars are judged. Meticulously hand-crafted under the watchful eye of cigar master Jose' Seijas at the Tabacalera de Garcia factory in the Dominican Republic, Montecristo cigars are available in a variety of premium blends for all different tastes.

With counterfeit cigars filling the humidors of unwitting smokers each year - it's difficult to tell which are real and which are fake.

Many experts believe there to be millions of counterfeit cigars in just the United States alone.

Look for the new Montecristo band. The new Montecristo band's has a gloss, whereas Montecristo's once had dull paper bands. The new band is shiny and quite smooth to the touch and the color is more milk-chocolate brown, whereas the old version looks grayer.

The two white dots that separate the words "Montecristo" and "Habana" have grown larger, and the Fleur-de-lis has been sketched in more elaborate fashion.
