These top-of-the-line Monte’s are expertly rolled at the company’s famed Tabacalera de García factory in the Dominican Republic. The Montecristo Epic 12 began with an abundant crop of Dominican and Nicaraguan tobacco that proved to be one of the finest harvests the countries had ever seen. Recognizing that they were witnessing something unique, the tobacco was gathered under the blessed omen of an actual blue moon. It was then aged to perfection for eight entire years. To create the Montecristo Epic Vintage 12 line, only the very best seeds were selected and let them grow in the most exclusive soils until they have a crop worthy of the Epic name.
