A new size for Gilbert de Montsalvat Anniversary. This blend was originally developed by brand owner Raymondo Bernasconi for the 10th anniversary of his brand. The only size available was the 5¾x58 Anniversary. But now there is a new size. The Gran Robusto measures 5½x54.

The original release was such a success for the Swiss brand that is transformed from a limited release to regular production. And now with a second vitola, it is turning into a line. The cigars are made in the Dominican Republic. That’s also the origin of the binder. The filler hails from Nicaragua with an Ecuadorian wrapper. 

Ministry of Cigars - A new size for Gilbert de Montsalvat Anniversary

Gilbert de Montsalvat

In 1999, the Swiss author Thomas Brunnschweiler published his novel ‘Der Papst von Genf’ and introduced Gilbert de Montsalvat to the world. It is quite a sad story though, the main character, Gilbert de Montsalvat is unable to smell or taste. But the moral of the story is, trust your instinct and judgment. And when Raymondo Bernasconi read the book, the character touched him. So a decade later, when he founded his own cigar brand he had to name it after Gilbert. The Gilbert de Montsalvat cigars were born.

The brand is over a decade old now. And has several lines, and line extensions such as the Chunky. And the 10th-anniversary limited edition. Some of the cigars are made in Nicaragua, others in the Dominican Republic. The current lines are the classic, the Revolution Style, Anniversary, Treasure, and the Lounge edition. And the Anniversary is now back, with a new size for the Gilbert de Montsalvat Anniversary line. The cigars are available in several countries, including the United Kingdom and Japan.
