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

Honest impression 7 sticks into a box... , 1/24/2020
By Zach
Picked up a box, CT was great with shipping. I really appreciated the Boveda packet they included in the shipment. Cigars arrived without any damage whatsoever.

THE CIGAR - Let these mellow a few weeks post travel in a very well kept humidor. NOT my first box. Really wanted to love these, but I’m seven deep into the box from various positions in the box and I can say with a high degree of certainty that these are NOT up to par with what we’ve all come to expect and enjoy from the Montecristo brand. Burn issues every time, five have had serious plugs smack in the last third which means there’s no “pushing past it” to enjoy the rest of the cigar. Maybe I got a bad box. It happens. Not fun when you shell out $300 (after shipping) for them. If they somehow improve I’ll update my review. I’m not here to complain or pout. This is a genuine, fair assessment thus far. As we all know, one or two duds can happen in a box. Seven duds in a row? Eesh. Likely won’t purchase again. Taste wise, they’re meh. I’d say light to medium with no change from first light to nub, if you can even stick with it that long. I do because I’m stubborn and these weren’t exactly a bargain. Giving them a 3 because they don’t have any splits in the wrappers and the color is pretty consistent throughout the box.

A career smoker's humidor should never be without them, and CT is the place to buy them from - last shipment got stuck in customs, Julian replaced the order without missing a beat.
Quality? It's all been said before, the hype is real - hundreds of cigars, dozens of no 2s, always a treat. One holds history in their hand with this noble stick.
