Review #132: This cigar has always fallen into the "good but not great" catagory for me- until now. A FEB 06 box has been a revelation. Has the blend changed. This Monte #2 is stronger, richer & earthier tasting than any previous version I've had. Incredibly complex for such a young cigar. It doesn't matter how they will age, because they won't last long! - Submitted by Bassman on December 16, 2006


Review #131: LLN SEP04 right out of the box after 7 day journey (thank you Jackie). One of the smoothest, most well rolled and constructed cigars that I have ever had (next to maybe the aged Davidoff Anniversario No 1). Dark oily wrappers. 2 hours of enjoyment. The flavor profile was on the mild/medium side and did not really change at all thoroughout the smoke (with change of flavors, being and attribute that I most appreciate in my cigars) but that may be due to 7 days of travel at less than optimal temperatures. There is only one step up to go in my mind so if it reaches a 10 down the road I will write again. These can only become more flavorful and refined as they settle and age- One of the finest looking boxes I have ever seen. LLN, Jose Marti has some talented people! - Submitted by Dr. Wu on December 8, 2006


Review #130: I have to say that I sort of share the same feelings as review#128. Not that this is a bad cigar. However, first things first: in my smoking career (I think we can all call it so by now) I tend to stay away from buying boxes of Montecristos. The reason behind this is that I realize that this is the most popular cigar name in the world (even to nonsmokers) and I have a feeling that the number of Montys rolled per year is extremely high. Take a look at how many reviews this cigar has (I see 26 pages of reviews) compared to other cigars on this website. In my humble opinion (and to keep this short) the chances are much higher to end up with a box that will end up being a waste. So when it comes to Montys, I stick with buying singles. Now, taste is not bad in this cigar, not bad at all, but sort of dull? But again depends on the individual. Personally, I would definitely pick a Bolivar Belicosos Finos over a Monty2 anytime. (Do note however that aged Monty2's are said to be phenomenal - on the other hand which Habano isn't?). - Submitted by PDL on November 23, 2006


Review #129: **I wish more reviewers would offer the full factory and date code for what they are reviewing - it's both helpful and nice/interesting to know... Box from GKI 2004, only 5 sticks left now. What a great smoke. Smooth draw giving mouthfuls of creamy, flavorful medium bodied smoke. Great aroma. An hour and a half of relaxation and enjoyment. Man are the wrappers on these silky smooth! Great cigar, that like most every habanos I have smoked, they have a life of their own. This one can, if you are lucky, smoke thick and rich, full bodied when right out of the box 3 or 4 months from production date, then go dull for awhile and after 2 years from production they blossom back to a mellower, more refinded smooth, rich, flavorful smoke. For those newer to the delights of smoking good cigars, you have to learn what you like and to catch your cigars when they are in your "stage". Don't waste them when they are not. Means only one thing: You gotta keep procurring and rotating - a costly habit! (For fuller bodied cigar than these try Bolivar Belicoso Finos.) - Submitted by Dr. Wu on November 20, 2006


Review #128: I realize that this is a VERY popular cigar but I honestly just don't get it... Not a bad cigar by any means but just boring in my opinion. To each his own I suppose. I'd get get a Partagas SerieP#2 or even an Upman #2 over this Piramide any day. Again, I'm not saying that I don't like it, just that I find it dull. Cheers. - Submitted by newbie on November 4, 2006
