In each box is a small note from Montecristo explaining the making of the Montecristo White Vintage.
“For generations, Connecticut Shade Wrapper has been highly sought-after by the world’s finest cigar makers. The leaves are grown in the sandy loam, unique to the Connecticut River Valley, under special tenting that filters the sun and elevates humidity to ideal levels. These conditions culminate in leaves that are prized for their silky texture, golden appearance, delicate flavor and flawless burn. The very finest of these leaves are carefully nurtured on Montecristo’s own farms and are reserved for Montecristo cigars.
Montecristo’s expert artisans have patiently aged leaves to create the MONTECRISTO WHITE VINTAGE CONNECTICUT cigar. The subtle taste nuances of the wrapper are married to a sensual blend of rich, hand-selected binder and filler tobaccos culminating in a sophisticated smoke – with complex flavor sensations. Created in limited quantities, this exquisite cigar is certain to delight the aficionado.
