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 go to smoke , 2/27/2019
By Rocco
I have smoked Behikes, Cohiba Piramides and I have to say the No.2 is my favorite cigar. It's a smooth smoke with earthy tones through out the entire cigar. I received my 25 box on 02/27/19 and the box was dated Jun 18. Cigar Terminal shipping was spot on and they where very well protected. I will only buy from this vendor in the future
Excellent cigar , 2/21/2019
By John
This is the benchmark Cuban cigar. It is superbly constructed, offers ample smoke, and has a wonderful and elegant aroma from the very start of the smoke.
THE point of comparison , 12/24/2018
By Scott
There is a reason this cigar is considered one of the finest out of Cuba. While I enjoy other torpedoes/Piramides, this is the basis for comparison...lighter or heavier than the Montecristo No.2...spicier or less spicy...greater or less smoke....stronger or lighter aftertaste...this is the cigar upon which the comparisons for this viola are made. I will always have it in my humidor (2 boxes right now).
Lives up to its reputation , 12/17/2018

I purchased a box of 25 of these cigars for a wedding present (and kept a couple for myself). I finally got around to smoking this wonderful cigar. It does, indeed, live up to its reputation. Construction is near perfect. Draw is very good. Flavor is subtly complex and creamy. No spice to speak of. Mild on the nicotine. The flavor does transition from very mild to somewhat stronger. Overall, I need to smoke this cigar, side by side, with the Romeo y Julieta Wide Churchill to determine which is the best cigar ever. I know its a tough job; but, someone has to do it! :-)

I've been a fan of this cigar for years. Very difficult to obtain in the US until I found this site. I use to get them in Aruba - but the prices are outrageous - the quote i got a month ago was unbelievable - the store in Aruba wanted almost $700.00 for a box of 20. Cigar Terminal is an awesome vendor and I'll continue to buy from them 1st! The Montecristo No.2 is the most satisfying cigar I've found to date. Regardless of your status in cigar smoking - you won't be sorry! Enjoy! Joe
