The most famous of all Havana brands started only as recent as 1935 as a new brand of Menendez, Garcia y Cia, who were the owners of the H. Upmann brand at that time.
Legend tells that the name of the brand was inspired by Alexandre Dumas’s novel ‘Le Comte de Montecristo’.
Due to the powerful marketing skills of the London-based cigar merchant Alfred Dunhill, this brand became the most popular of all Havana cigars and in fact its medium strength cigars are the standard to which every other Havana cigar is now judged.
