The Montecristo No. 1 is the longest cigar in the series of numbers (which currently consists of five examples, from 1 to 5) and has been produced since before the Castro revolution. In all these decades, it was presented in numerous packaging, including a 100-count Cajon.
It is currently only sold in a 25-unit dress box.
Visually it is dressed in a Colorado wrapper with brown reflections. Sometimes, the wrapper can be as dark as Maduro. To the touch, it is smooth without too-marked veins. The filling is unifrom and, at times, the draw can be slightly tight, but nothing that could compromise the smoking mechanics.
