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

It's one of the best for a reason , 7/1/2022
By Enrique
This is just an amazing stick. I love the creamy flavor that you pick up right away. As long as this stick is older than 6 months, you will love it. It truly does get better as it ages. I hope to pick up another box soon.
The true Cuban classic of all time , 1/28/2022
By AXK
Probably the most well-known Cuban cigar in the world, the Montecristo No.2 is an outstanding cigar with notes of coffee, spice, cedar, and that characteristic "tangy" note that Montecristo cigars typically have. I recommend putting the full box down for a deep sleep in a humidor for 3-4 years before smoking, as these cigars really benefit from having some age on them and become truly great after several years of aging.
The gold standard in which all others have to compare. , 1/17/2022
By gerald
The number one cigar in the world and all others have to attempt to live up to this magnificent cigar. After 12-18 moths this cigar continues to improve to provide an unbelievable smoke. You will not be disappointed.
Best cigar on the market. , 5/19/2021

The Mont #2 is my favorite cigar. Great burn with a smooth retrohale. The flavor gets more pronounced at the last 1/3.
