Montecristo No. 2: One of the Most Sought After Cigars

Submitted by Alex on July 22, 2013 – 7:38 amNo Comment

It is easy to review the next cigar on my list, the Montecristo No. 2.  Everybody likes it. Not surprisingly, I like it myself. So, what this cigar has that others haven’t?

It is safe to say that the Montecristo No. 2 is a big cigar. With a 52’ring gauge and a 156 cm length, you will be busy with this stogie for 90 minutes or so. And while there are some cigar smokers that prefer their smokes to be short, I like my cigars long and thick to fully enjoy their flavor.

And in the flavor department, the Monte No. 2 certainly delivers a lot. At the beginning, it is quite mild, but you are in for some elaborate woody and cedar flavors closer to the middle. The woody flavor becomes even richer towards the finish. Overall, the smoke is delicious and there is lots of it.

The Monte No.2 is rather on the medium/strong side. Many newbies don’t like their cigars this strong, but the smooth burn and creamy taste can compensate for this.

There is, however, one issue I’ve heard my fellow cigar smokers complain about – the up-and-down construction. Some of them were unlucky to purchase the Monte No.2 with a construction that was not up to par. Personally, I have not encountered as I bought my cigars from a trustworthy source – – and asked them to inspect my cigars prior to shipping. But, as far as I heard, these unfortunate cases are rarer these days as the construction has improved over the years.

Despite the above said, I’d recommend this cigar to everybody who knows a thing or two about cigars as this is probably the best Cuban torpedo I’ve ever tasted.
