Details of Altadis’ Montecristo B.R.M Edition, a project done in conjunction with Bernard Richards Manufacture (B.R.M.), have been released.
Montecristo B.R.M. features a luxury humidor along with a custom-made watch by B.R.M – both incorporating Montecristo design elements. The humidor also features a built-in watch winder for the timepiece. In addition, the humidor comes with 40 Montecristo B.R.M. Edition cigars featuring a blend designed for this project. The humidor comes with 40 cigars and a total of 32 humidors have been produced.
“Montecristo was already associated with a great French writer Alexandre Dumas,” says Frederic Gasser, President of B.R.M Americas. “It’s a great privilege to add a French name to that legendary cigar and we are looking forward to a fantastic adventure by launching this exclusive timepiece combined with some special cigars and this truly amazing box. We also look forward to adding to this exclusive Montecristo B.R.M collector’s collection in the future,” added Gasser.
Produced at the Plasencia factory in Nicaragua, the Montecristo B.R.M. blend is a 100% Nicaraguan puro featuring an extra-aged and oily wrapper from Jalapa, a binder from Ometepe, and tobaccos from Condega and Estelí. The cigars come in one size, a 52 x 6 Toro.
“We are very proud of the rare blend that was used for the Montecristo B.R.M Edition cigar. It represents the highest-quality, 100% Nicaraguan tobaccos from the exclusive Plasencia family reserve,” says Rafael Nodal, Head of Product Capability at Tabacalera USA.
Pricing for the Montecristo B.R.M. set that includes the humidor, watch, and cigars is set at $11,000.00 per unit. A preview of the Montecristo B.R.M. will take place at a series of Casa De Montecristo charity dinners taking place in Texas this week. The cigar is also being showcased at TPE 2021.
