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

Cigar Terminal’s customer service is second to none. I called twice prior to my first 6 box order which included my favorite cigar...the Montecristo #2.
It’s a very personalized shopping experience and if you have any questions about anything from cigar taste, quality and shipping just call. Shipping to the US was quick and packaging was perfect...just as promised!!
Now onto this Montecristo #2. Box was fresh, draw and taste outstanding. What a good experience.

First off, Cigar Terminal’s customer service is second to none. It’s a very personalized shopping experience if you have any questions about anything. Mary has been fantastic to email with, and very timely responses. Now onto this Montecristo #2. Just wow. This was my first order with CT and will NOT be my last. I’m not a regular smoker but I appreciate quality when I do light one up. The flavor, draw, quality, and “experience” with this cigar was worth every penny. My friends lucky enough to have shared in smoking one with me absolutely rave about how good they are. I purchased them last fall and stored them in a refrigerated humidor and I swear they have only gotten better. Every single cigar has been perfect, no defects, no complaints and absolutely genuine without question. My next purchase will be soon in time for golf season. Looking at Cohiba Robustos SLB 25. Stick with what works right? I’ll post a review of those once I’ve ordered. Also, shipping was super quick... I think it was a week from order until delivery to NE US. They were well packed and received in perfect condition. Thanks again Mary and the entire CT team!
Not a good draw , 5/12/2019

Only issue I have with the Montecristo #2 is the draw. 3 of the first 5 or 6 in the box after a week in the humidor was very tight and needed punched a few times.
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.
