Montecristo Announces B.R.M Humidor with Timepiece – Cigar News

Altadis U.S.A. has announced a new B.R.M Montecristo Humidor with a B.R.M Timepiece included. B.R.M stands for Bernard Richards Manufacture, a French luxury watchmaker. Only 32 of these Humidor and Timepieces will be sold.

Montecristo was already associated with a great French writer Alexandre Dumas. 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.

Frederic Gasser, President of B.R.M Americas

The humidor itself includes a watch winder and a selection of 40 limited edition B.R.M Cigars crafted by the Plasencia family. The cigars measure 6 x 52 and are described as a very rare blend. Each humidor is numbered.

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.

Rafael Nodal, Head of Product Capability at Tabacalera USA.

The blend uses an oily and extra aged wrapper from Jalapa, binder from Ometepe, and filler from Condega and Estelí. Each humidor has an MSRP of $11,00.
