Review #164: Definitely much more flavors than an Edmundo (which I smoked yesterday). Unique flavors, probably best described as strong leather and cedar flavors make it very different from the No. 3s, No. 4s, and No. 5s I typically smoke. Smooth nevertheless; smoked it to 4cm long and it was not overwhelming nor overly intense but with a hint of spice. I've yet to try a couple more, perhaps the flavors will grow on me. - Submitted by mtec on June 8, 2007


Review #163: I managed to "forget" one of these in my humidor for 8 months. Yesterday, however, I finally decided that the time was right to introduce it to the flame. First things first - this cigar always draws like a dream. My worry every time I prepare to smoke a Monte#2, however, is that I don't know what to expect. Will this be the real blockbuster it is supposed to be (as the benchmark of all piramides) or will it be "one-dimensional" as occurs much too often? Fellow cigar smokers do not take me wrong, I am not accusing - I am hoping that my comments will serve as constructive criticism. The Cuban cigar industry should realize that there are a handful of smokes that we have become accustomed to consider as the "ambassadors/representatives" of Cuban cigars. One such cigar is the Montecristo #2. I remember reading an article a few years back how they were just rolling these like crazy to keep up with the demand. Well, should I say once again what the result of this is? A huge number of dull, "one-dimensional" sticks in the market. If it were any other cigar, I probably wouldn’t spend a minute thinking about it, not to say sitting to write about it. I am hoping that better days are coming – judging from yesterday’s cigar, I am getting a few hints that this may have started to occur already. Yesterday’s cigar caressed the palate with masses of rich Cuban smoke leaving hints of earth, spice, dark chocolate, and just the right amount of leather accompanied with sweet cedar. Every puff ended with a fresh creamy aftertaste that kept me longing for another draw. It reminded me how a Cuban cigar is supposed to taste like and the romantic affair that should develop between cigar and smoker every time. Just how one of the most precious products in the world is supposed to taste like. Always! - Submitted by PDL on May 29, 2007


Review #162: These are among the best cuba has to offer. They are also are among the largest in counterfeits. Be very careful. A true aged #2 should never have draw problems nor be lacking in flavor. I age mine for over 5 years. - Submitted by carter on May 25, 2007


Review #161: I would consider myself a beginner smoker only having sampled 1 or 2 cigars from each of the various cuban brands.I Just smoked my first #2 and I have to say I was extremely disappointed. I felt that it was a struggle to get a decent draw from the first half and not much flavour at all. Relit it halfway through and there was much more smoke and flavour but I never got the bang of satisfaction I was expecting. I would like to sample another one after reading some of the positive reviews here but until I do this one only gets a rating of 2 in my book. - Submitted by Swi on May 7, 2007


Review #160: This was the first cigar i was ever privaledged to smoke and i must say, it knocked me right on my ass. It is a true thing of beauty and has quite a nice strength. They are quite a big cigar so be prepared for a nice long relaxation time with this Habana beauty. Sometimes i can find the draw to be a bit weak but all in all it is a very fine smoke. - Submitted by wesciante on May 1, 2007
