The Montecristo Linea 1935 Dumas is the smallest size of the line and is similar to that of a classic Robusto, although it has a slightly smaller ring-gauge (49 instead of 50) and is slightly longer (130 instead of 127 mm). The size is called “Prominente Corto” and currently the Dumas are the only cigars in the Cuban portfolio with these dimensions.
Announced in 2017, the 1935 Line only reached the market in mid-2018. This line was created to commemorate the birth of the Montecristo brand and the cigars are packaged in particular 20-count lacquered boxes.
The filling is generous and the cigars are dressed in a Colorado shaded wrapper, that is slightly rough to the touch. Construction is flawless and the cigars present three rings.

Montecristo Linea 1935 Dumas: unlit, hints of earth and cedar wood. The opening reveals vegetal notes.
Overall, the Montecristo Linea 1935 Dumas is a cigar with a good flavor intensity. The profile is not among the broadest, but it is balanced, especially in the second and final third, when the light bitterness disappears. Better than the Leyenda (click here for the review), but they don’t reach the performance of the Maltes (click here for the review).
