Review #285: ---   Just finished my first ever no 2. Although I am quite acquainted with its sibling, the no. 4, I found this one to be quite different. To start with, the appearance of all the no 2's I got from Cayo-Coco's duty free (a box of 10) is flawless: they all appeared to be supremely well constructed. The wrapped is rather pale, quite different from the same size but darker looking Partagas Serie P no. 2. Easy to light and burning evenly, the first third was surprisingly light flavored, probably due to the rather tough draw. In contrast, the no 4 usually start medium-full up-front with cocoa and spice quite present to boot. Not so with the no 2, it was more etheral in the beginning. Things got more serious in the second half with clear cocoa, coffee, spices (nutweg?) and pepper. Those traits climaxed in the last third with a dominance of pepper, earth and a perfect hint of acidity. Overall, a very interesting and serious puro; I think though it needs to be revisited once aging has performed its act. Still, as far as it goeas, I'm more attracted to the the no 4 which I find more balanced throughout. As and indication to my tastes, my preferred vitolas of last are the Trinidad Robusto T (classy, complex, perfect!) and the Cohiba robusto Maduro Cinco Años (que bueno: chocolaty!): the Maduro I smoked in Cuba, with a nice aged rhum in a lounge, while the excellent musicians played some nice classic jazz... no 2 : 8/10 but a better/aged sample will score better. Serious cigar, commands all your attention... - Submitted by Coolzen1 on May 22, 2010

Review #284: AUG 08 Wow, I had on of these last night and this smoke is a serious contender for the Heavy weight title. Lots of Coffee & Cream, Leather, and honey flavors here. The draw was really great as the Cigar burned perfectly throughout. Last half got really strong. Classic Monte!!!! Like I said this stick is Down for the Crown!!!!! - Submitted by IMARK on May 14, 2010

Review #283: ---   What can I say about legendary Montecristo No. 2 that hasn't been said before. Well, probably nothing but here goes anyway. The appearance of this cigar with silky and oily Colorado claro wrapper is very appealing. First third offered notes of espresso, cocoa and leather. Aroma was deliciously thick and creamy. During second third, cigar gained considerable spiciness which only intensified towards the end. Last third was a fireworks of peppery, earthy and woody flavors. First this medium to full-bodied cigar seduces you with delicious notes and then punches you in the face with a spicy fist. No wonder Monte #2 scares away some people. - Submitted by Finn on May 9, 2010

Review #282: ---   One of the best cigars i have ever tasted, extra smooth on the draw, perfect construction, the right amount of aroma, use the puncher to make a small 5mm whole at the tip of the piramide (needs some practice) all in all it is a 9/10 cigar, try it - Submitted by Tarek Nasser on April 22, 2010

Review #281: ---   I've smoked about five of these. All singles from different boxes and only one was enjoyable. Apart from the beautiful construction and sweet pre-light smell, I have been seriously disappointed. It starts off woody and leathery with a hint of spice. At the halfway point things start to get bitter and acidy. I want to like this cigar but repeated smokings have put me off. I have two more left I will let sit and revisit in a couple of years. Otherwise no more Monty #2's for me. - Submitted by bundwallah on April 12, 2010
