Montecristo Artisan Batch 1 is another creation of Groupo de Maestros. The inaugural edition put together the starts that conform this group from Tabacalera de Garcia: Pedro Ventura, Nestor Rodriguez and Joel Alvarenga from Flor de Copan. With their long lasting blending and manufaturing experience and using the most refined tobaccos, they created this Montecristo Artisanship Batch No. 1. Only one butcher and one experiesed roller were chosen to roll the 40,000 sticks produced for this release. The Montecristo Artisan Batch 1 are now available at Cuenca Cigars of Hollywood.
