Review #99: This is one of the top 3 cigars in my books. I\'ve been enjoying these for nearly 4 years now (it took me a few years to work up to this and really appreciate the complexity of this cigar). I love the signature Monte flavors - leather and earth to start, hints of creamy dark chocolate subtly creeping in the 2nd third, ending with hints of espresso and spice. Mild to start, but ends off strong and extremely flavorful. I love it! I admit, this cigar is a miss or hit from box to box(my only complaint)- but a good buddy of mine brought me back a box of 25 straight from La Casa in Cuba dated Mar 03, and it was a beauty! Dark, oily, well humidified, and all but 1 or 2 sticks were absolutely wonderful! I know I should have let some of these sit for a year, but they were so dang good as they were. I went through this box in just 3 months, but I just purchased another box of 10 from Canada 6 months ago dated Jul 04, and the quality was just as good as the other box. I\'ve allowed half a dozen to rest and the one I smoked yesterday evening was...no words can describe!! The best one I\'ve had yet. - Submitted by D.C. Park on July 23, 2005

Review #98: I\'ve always enjoyed this vitola, but usually smoke Bolivar, Sancho Panza or the Diplomaticos version...I had purchased only one box of the Montes, and was disappointed to the extent of not giving them the second chance they most assuredly deserved. Five or six weeks ago I opened a box of NPD-OCT.04 and let them sit for a month until lighting one, and I am so glad I bought the box! They really pretty much rule the piramide roost, in all areas: construction, wrapper, blend, looks and feel (they are awesome in hand)....on taste alone, they are something else. From start to finish, to me, 90 minutes of heaven. Not overpowering, but a nice medium-bodied smoke with enough spice to satisfy the most ardent of spice junkies...coffee, leather, and I detect a very nice floral aspect in the first inch or so. Sorry to write so much, but I wronged the cigar a while back, and it\'s now on my short (est) list. - Submitted by dlctwice on July 21, 2005

Review #97: Like many cuban cigars it suffers from consistent quality issues. So it depends on the batch. A good batch is rich, full, gives you the tickle at the back of your throat and if you haven\'t eaten prior you will end up with a little buzz. Aging always improves them and overall I do enjoy them. - Submitted by cigarsafterdark on July 15, 2005

Review #96: Had one from a JUN04 box and after a year in the humi it was a great smoke. Smooth and rich from the first puff. Aging Monte 2\'s is key. Young ones can be less than great, but when I smoke these with a year or more in the humi I am amazed at how good they are. - Submitted by psmead on June 3, 2005

Review #95: Have to admit that I believe this cigar\'s success is also based on a good marketing. Got a box of them last week and smoked two letting \"the rest to rest\" in the humidor. The two I smoked were great cigars, very flavorful and good burn so if they are properly stored in the cigar shop, (and these were) they really do not need to rest for months in the humidor. Anyway, I still believe that the best cigars are Vegas Robaina Unicos, Hoyo DC and Diplomaticos #2 with its strange but excellent twist. But what I like most at the Cubans, (apart from the wrapper color which is unparalleled) is the firm draw quite opposite to cigars made in other countries for the American market.
