There’s another collaboration between Atladis U.S.A. and AJ Fernandez coming to market–Monte by Montecristo AJ Fernandez. Montecristo’s history dates back to 1935 when Alonso Menéndez, the owner of Particulares Factory in Cuba, was inspired by the book The Count of Montecristo. Since then, the Montecristo cigar brand has gained worldwide recognition. The new Monte by Montecristo AJ Fernandez will have an official launch at this year’s International Premium Cigar & Pipe Retailer show (IPCPR) trade show and convention in Las Vegas this July.
“The Monte by Montecristo line was launched in 2013 to add new dimension to the traditional Montecristo portfolio—a stronger cigar at an affordable price point,” Altadis U.S.A. explained in a press release. “ Today, we’re building on its success with consumers by partnering with AJ Fernandez to deliver the new Monte by Montecristo AJ Fernandez, crafted to appeal to the adult consumer demographic with a taste for stronger, bolder smoking experiences.”
