The Madrid Zarzuela Hippodrome was the venue for the grand premiere, the world scoop of the new Montecristo Línea 1935.
A huge party that did not disappoint anyone: The grand premiere of Montecristo’s Línea 1935 was a genuine success. For the very first time in the world and before its launch, almost 500 people had the opportunity to taste the new cigars of the legendary Cuban brand.
The event took place in the Zarzuela Hippodrome, Madrid, where a select cast of premium products was offered to the public: delicious Gold Selection caviar, the best serrano ham and other Extremadura sausages from Señorío de Montanera; an exquisite selection of French and Spanish cheeses, such as Boffard, Caprice des Dieux, Saint Agur, Chaumes and Fol Epi; a sampling of the ever attractive Japanese cuisine from Sushi Artist; Pozo coffee; Lindt chocolates …
To drink, there were Codorniu cavas and Numanthia and Termes red wines. Lustau’s Jerez winery brought all its sherry wines and its new Palomino-grape vermouth. There were great brandies and harvest wines from Ximénez Spínola. There was also La Virgen artisan beer, Plymouth gin, Chivas whisky, and, of course, the best Cuban light rum, Havana Seleccion de Maestros.
The lucky attendees had the opportunity to taste the three new cigars of the Montecristo line 1935. Three full-bodied cigars that complete the Montecristo offer, which, until now, has been formed by the Classic Line, of medium-high strength, and the Open Line, of medium strength. Cigars will soon be available for fans in the best tobacconists in Spain.
