Presentation

Montecristo No.2 – 25 cigars comes in a dress box with Habanos Packing Code CB-UW-C/L-12,13-n-25

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

Montecristo #2 , 9/20/2017
By Thomas
Exactly what I expected what a great smoke I'm spoiled. I have been smoking 2 a day
Great Smoke
Perfect size and such a beautiful stick to smoke. , 9/7/2017
By Ian
Opening the box of these was an experience of its own. They look gorgeous, lovely oily caramel coloured wrappers and great aroma. Not a huge fan of the Piramide but once you spark up you no longer care what shape it is. Plenty of creamy smoke and a lovely mix of flavours. Nutty, woodsy tobacco that fills you pallet stays that way for almost the entire smoke. Burn was a little wonky occasionally but self corrected without any worries. Will be sitting these down and trying not to smoke them as long as possible.
Wonderful Cigar , 7/25/2017
By Mark
I got this as part of the sampler pack. When I tried the first one, only after a few days in the humi, I struggled with the draw. After 2 weeks in the humi, the draw was much better and the flavor was wonderful, full and creamy.

This is something I am definitely adding to regular cigar rotation.

I ordered this box of No 2's and it arrived within 7 days with a date stamped "Dec 15" and I thought I had won the lottery. But, it only got better. Every one of these sticks was shear perfection in taste and construction. I couldn't help myself and smoked 1 a day for 25 days before ordering 2 more boxes. Additionally, the fact that Cigar Terminal has had such strong inventory of No 2's is amazing. I was recently in Cuba and I couldn't find a box of this cigar anywhere.
Cigar Terminal and their staff are the "Gold Standard" of customer service! I couldn't be happier with them and they have a customer for life.
