Presentation

Montecristo No 2 – 10 cigars comes in a dress box with Habanos Packing Code CB-UW-n-10-n-10

Dimensions:

Length: 156mm

Diameter: 20.64mm

Ring Gauge: 52

Shape: Pyramid

Appearance:

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

This cigar was out of stock buy the time I went to purchase, was a short wait time but it was worth the wait. Cigar Terminal is a great site , emails answered, great products, fast service with NO problems. I will be telling everyone about this site. Had this cigar on my bucket list and Cigar Terminal made it happen. Thank you.

This cigar has all the flavors that they talk about in the reviews, with the exception to my opinion of this cigar. This cigar is more like the first drink of a Dr. Pepper soda with a cream soda finish and each draw having that great same peppery cream taste. I would not know why anyone would smoke anything else!!

Unbelievable cigar, unbelievable customer service, lightning fast shipping. Switzerland —> East Coast in 7 days, during the holiday rush! Sticks arrived in perfect condition, perfect wrappers, perfect feet - no damage, and shrink wrapped w/ a Boveda RH pack. Dark, oily wrappers smelling strong of chocolate, oak and tobacco. I wish I bought more for aging. Do not hesitate to order. Cigar terminal will be my go to supplier from this point forward. Thanks again for the help, Mary.

This is the finest cigar I have had the pleasure to enjoy. And this Habanos version is even better than the DR model we have been relegated to here in the states in the past. The great flavors of vanilla, chocolate and oak are smoothly delivered from first light to final draw. And this is the one cigar I have enjoyed whose fine aromatic smoke has been noticed and has been complimented on by passers-by. Nothing better.
