Presentation

Montecristo No 2 – 15 cigars comes in packs of 3 with Habanos Packing Code D-C-C/P-3-n-15

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

Buy this model, and thank me later , 5/27/2017

These are my favorite Montecristo. I have enjoyed the #4s for years, but the #2 are a fine 55 minute smoke that has a balanced flavor through out the smoke.

This was my first order from Cigar Terminal...actually my first mail order CC. I ordered something from another online place too...to see who delivered the quality goods.
Well - This order never made it to my address. All it took was an email from me and Ken and Mary were on top of it. Super polite and very efficient - they sent me a replacement order quickly and it was received with perfect gorgeous product! Cigar Terminal is awesome!
One of my all time favorites , 12/2/2014

I got two of these in my sample pack and they did not disappoint. I have smoked many of these in the past and it was every thing i remembered and more. Smooth from start to finish started off rich and strong and keep on going till the end. I shared these with my business partner at his Halloween party and you could taste the jealousy of the other guest as we happily puffed away. I will definitely make these a staple of my collection as time goes on.

The Cigar for Everyone , 7/20/2012
By Cigarologist
I steered clear of Montecristo for a lot of years, particularly the Montecristo No. 2 as I didn't want a cigar that was an "every man's smoke" because to me that indicated it was somewhere in the middle of the road; average. A few years ago I discovered that "every man" included myself as I found the Montecristo No. 2 to be very tasty! It is complex and full of flavor while not overpowering. They are about as good as your average fantastic Cuban cigar!

A note about my experience with quality:
When Montecristo is on, the cigars are absolutely world-class but when they're off, they are really off. I have not had cigars from any other maker with as many inconsistencies in construction (probably 10-15% failure rate in my experience).
