Casa de Montecristo & Stogie TV

A few months ago we had a guest at our Cigar Lounge who said he wanted to check out the store in the Chicago area everyone was talking about. Turns out it was Tobacco Kennedy from  We had a great time showing him around and was pleasantly surprised when he sent us the link to the video tour he filmed.  Really done well and great feel to it.  These guys do an amazing job, check it out all their shows at and watch the video below.

A tour of Casa de Montecristo by Jonathan Drew

Liga-LogoBack in 2010 Jonathan Drew was in town testing out a new Liga Privada blend at Casa.  Below is the video by Cigar Explorer featuring Jonathan Drew as your tour guide on a walk through our Cigar Lounge.  He was also getting people’s reaction to a new concoction he was working on for the Liga Privada line. It was called the JD-4 and people were impressed with what he had come up with.  The blend had to still be perfected over the next year and eventually was released exclusively at Casa de Montecristo as the Liga Privada UF-4.  This cigar’s profile may vary a little bit from year to year but the basic flavor characteristics have been maintained through the different variations.  With each year’s release it seems to gain more and more fans around the country and demand far outweighs our supply.  If you see these available make sure you grab them before they’re gone.

Drop into Casa de Montecristo

Opened in 2010, Casa de Montecristo is one of the premier cigar lounges in the country, if not the world.  With an enormous selection of brands and lines of cigars it boasts one of the best selections around.  We also age cigars in one of the first Vintage rooms in the country.  Lined with limestone walls and utilizing amber lighting and a state of the art humidification system the Vintage Room is maintained perfectly to age and store our Rare & Vintage collection.  The amenities include a public lounge, walk-in humidor, an Escaparate section, and of course the amazing V.I.P Lounge located on the lower level.  The V.I.P lounge has a private elevator, conference room, theater room, booths, lounge chairs, a B.Y.O.B bar, and humidified lockers. A must see if you’re in the area.
