Santa Clara Cigars has announced the second installment of its Montecristo Volume Series, Montecristo Volume 2: The Rendezvous. It’s a series that revolves around the Montecristo brand’s inspiration, “The Count of Monte Cristo” novel by Alexandre Dumas.
Montecristo Volume 2: The Rendezvous, is inspired by a chapter in the second volume of the Dumas book in which the Count of Montecristo meets Albert de Morcerf, the son of his mortal enemy.
The Montecristo Volume Series first made its debut in 2020 with the Montecristo Volume 1: 100 Days. Like Volume 1, what is unique about Volume 2 is that it is a Montecristo cigar produced in Honduras at Flor de Copan.
The blend feature an Ecuadorian Seed Habano 2000 wrapper over a Broadleaf binder and Honduran long-filler tobacco. Montecristo Volume 2: The Rendezvous is offered in three sizes: Robusto, Toro, and Churchill. Each size is presented in ten-count boxes.
“We are proud to bring this latest exclusive Montecristo to Santa Clara,” said Rafael Nodal, Head of Product Capability for Tabacalera USA in a press release. “The Montecristo Volume 2: The Rendezvous is a cigar as rich in history as it is in flavor.”
“With a $15.00 – $17.30 suggested retail price, retailers will be hard-pressed to find a better luxury cigar with such great margins and profit potential,” added David Joyce, director of wholesale operations for Santa Clara.
Santa Clara Cigars is the brick and mortar distribution arm of JR Cigars and Casa de Montecristo.
