The nice chocolate wrapper is very oily to the touch and has an excellent sheen in the light. Firmly packed. The foot looks well bunched.

Smoking Notes:

Before lighting up

The cigar has aromas of oak, hay, coffee and earth. With the cold draw we get those flavors of coffee, cocoa, cream, hay and oak as well. There is a mild barnyard aroma to the wrapper. Simply lovely smell.

Burn/ Draw

The construction is just perfect - the ash stays on for 3 inches. The draw was very slightly firm, and produces plenty of smoke.

Initial third:

The first third greets you with typical Montecristo flavors. The dominant flavors are of cocoa, coffee; some nice smoothness is also there along with cedar and earthy notes. We also detect some nuts, toast and light spices in the first third. Those classic Montecristo flavors are at their peak with the No.2 vitola. The burn line is clear and slightly wavy, a nice creamy smoke is surrounding you in the initial third while the cigar is medium in strength for now.

Middle third:

The second third of the cigar is consistent with the first third. Still the flavors of chocolate, espresso, nuts, cream and leather. The smoothness is well balanced with some light spices and woods flavors by the end of the second third.

Final third:

The final third is wonderful. The smoke produced by the Montecristo No.2 is now full of aromas; the burn line is becoming more upright and the ash has a nice dark gray color. The flavors are still fairly similar to the first two thirds except that they are now more pronounced. This cigar delivers until the nub as some woody, leathery and spicy aromas are here to make sure you are still paying attention to it. The Montecristo No.2 is never overwhelming, and stays true to its medium body in strength.

In summary, this cigar is tough to beat. Simply the best!

Smoking time:

90 - 105 Minutes

My favorite cigar , 5/3/2018
By John
As most folks know, this beauty has been a highly rated cigar for decades. It is my favorite cigar. It burns cool, clean and even.
A very enjoyable smoke. I love everything about it.
The aroma from start to finish and the taste across the palate is fantastic. It pairs nicely with whiskey, scotch or a great Cuban rum. Treat yourself. You will not be disappointed. 5 stars.

What more can be said about this cigar, year after year constant quality. Pleasing to look at and a joy to smoke, always and easy draw, constant burn and satisfaction during and at the end of the smoke.
Not as consistent as expected , 12/20/2017
By John
To be honest the box that I received (stamped Sep 15) has kind of been hit and miss...the first few i had were great, but then a couple seemed to have rolled too tightly around the top of the cigar creating a very hard draw, making it difficult to keep lit and maintain an even burn, and diminishing the overall flavor of the cigar. Will see how the rest of the smokes go....
Awesome cigs , 11/14/2017
By Martin
I hadn't ordered any cubans in a while and based on my findings, Cigar Terminal was reported to be a good provider of authentic cubans. I received my order within 7-8 days and the cigars looked and smelled wonderful. Montecristo #2 is one of my, if not, the favorite cigars.

I wholeheartedly recommend purchasing from Cigar Terminal - they serve with integrity and are customer focused.
Perfect with Age , 10/25/2017
By Mark
I got a box dated Sep-15, over two years of age. Let it rest for a week then tried my first cigar from the box. This is definitely has fuller flavor than the other torpedoes, creamier than the Partagas P-2. I am going to be resting these and trying them out once every month or two if I can.
