Montecristo Connoisseur was developed as a line extension for Brick & Mortar cigar store in four cities in America. The four cities were NYC, Las Vegas, Texas and Chicago. Altadis-USA developed one size only for stores in each one of the cities (including "Texas"). Consequently the Montecristo Connoisseur line includes four frontmarks in one size each and they are all variations of a big gauge Toro. Today the company released a special collection box of 8 cigars with two of each of the four versions. This VERY limited edition is available now at Mike's Cigars while supply lasts. Each one of the four different Montecristo Connoisseur has its own characteristics. The New York is rich & aromatic with notes of cinnamon, nuts & sweet caramel with coffee finish. The Texas is a robust smoke with hints of chocolate, Las Vegas is a bold, earthy smoke and Chicago is a stunning savory powerhouse. All in all a tremendous collection of super small batch that will run out.
