A Brief Insight into Quality Havana Cigars
When on the lookout for a quality cigar it can be incredibly important to know and understand exactly where to find the highest quality cigars available. Havana cigars such as Montecristo and so much more are not available to purchase in any old place. Knowing the various brands, how to light them, and how to store them is essential knowledge to have when on the lookout to buy. The first step to becoming a successful cigar connoisseur is to get to know those renowned brands and what it is that makes them so popular.
Possibly the best example to use is the Montecristo; this cigar is known to many as the world’s most famous cigar since before the 1950’s. The Montecristo brand accounts for approximately 50% of the Habanos company cigar sales. It is well known that the Montecristo name comes from the acclaimed novel by Alexandre Dumas, The Count of Monte Cristo, which is a favourite novel of the makers of Havana cigars dating back to 1935. Montecristo cigars come in an extensive range of shapes and sizes, which covers a lot of personal tastes and customer preferences. These cigars are made with a deep attention to detail; with each leaf being selected exclusively for each cigar and carefully rolled in the famous Montecristo cigar wrapping.
Cigars of a higher quality are almost always handmade, which ensures a consistently high level of quality control throughout the entire cigar-making process. Another sign of quality cigar-making are long-filled cigars as these cigars are filled with long tobacco leaves throughout. Those who are new to the cigar world will benefit from trying a medium to full bodied cigar, as they provide the user with a smooth, rich aroma that appeals to newcomers and veterans alike.
It is near impossible to finding Cuban-made cigars in the United Kingdom or United States; however, if you find yourself with one at your disposal, particularly the Montecristo, then you have in your hand the best cigar in the business. Even if you are a complete newcomer to the cigar world, simply knowing your brands is a fantastic place to start in order to forgive any faux pas you may make.
