A Spanish businessman named Juan Lopez Diaz founded his brand in the 1870's. 

Although little known around the world today, Juan Lopez has always attracted a following amongst aficionados of Habanos particularly for the Seleccion No. 1 and, most notably, for the Seleccion No. 2 sizes. 

The range offers a consistent medium to full flavour based on a rich blend of filler and binder leaves from the Vuelta Abajo zone and consist of long filler leaves. 

Tasting Notes

Nice wrapper, great taste, excellent draw! Not to be underestimated. Fantastic flavour, this is a real gem of a cigar.

92 / 100

"...Rich notes of leather, nuts and chocolate play beautifully off of this cigar's spicy, cedary core for a well-balanced and delicious smoke..."

Both cigars were soft and easily squashed. Not pleased Flavour OK Size OK Delivery OK Easily light until the end then kept going out.

Im no expert, but like a quality smoke. I normally smoke Hoyo Epicures, various Davidoffs and Nicaraguan NUBs. Smoked this for the first time last week: its well-balanced, easy-going but with body; milk chocolate and walnuts for me. Will buy again. And it drew beautifully.

Best alternative to Romeo y Julieta. Sweet and mellow with an extra strength and coffee notes at the end. Something that makes this blend more interesting than Romeo if you want a different body strength and flavour finish at the end. David - C.Gars Ltd Cigar Ambassador

Last week I sampled the new Juan Lopez Superba RE16. Today I wanted to make a nice review of the regular production Juan Lopez No 2. Juan Lopez No 2 is in my opinion one of the best Constructed Havanas. It has a lovely wrapper. (I Love them when they come with a dark wrapper) The construction in flavour is amazing. The first part of this robusto 124mm x 50 is extremely woody (The regional edition one smells like nuts, this one smells sweet and woody) the first flavours are extremely lovely wood, and very sweet brown sugar notes. The second part is very mellow on my palate, I can recognise a few small notes of almonds. The third part is getting much more full bodied. Flavours are becoming very rich in sweet notes, some smooth white pepper notes, a bit spicy on my palate but just a little. The draw is lovely. I cannot find any problems in this cigar. Wonderful smoke. I would like to recommend trying this cigar with our two Stalla Dhu whiskies, if you like to combine flavours. For the first sweet part of the cigar, try our Stalla Dhu Islay; you can combine the sweetness of the cigar and a nice peaty whisky. If you would prefer to increase the sweetness, try our Stalla Dhu speyside. For the last part I would once again recommend a nice speyside. The full body of the cigar and the sweetness of this whisky is a wonderful combination. If you want to increase the strength go for the Islay. – David, Turmeaus Liverpool.

Reviewed by Kevin Schonhaut ( October 2000) No need to describe the appearance of the cigars again here. The cigar's pre-lit aroma was very subtle, enough to allow me to detect that there was, indeed something under my nose. When first applying a flame to the foot, there was a hint of mild spice. I had in my hand a very rich and complex single malt with strong, rather than subtle hints of chocolate, butterscotch and stewed fruit. With the first puff of smoke from the Juan Lopez No. 2, it was clear that the cigar was not going to be able to hold up against the onslaught of flavor offered by the scotch. I laid the drink aside and slowly tried to get a sense of the cigars character. What can I say? Despite a perfect burn and draw, my first cigar was as bland as my brother's. It was like going to the beach and hearing the radio play on someone else's sand dune. It was like the sound of a train in the distance. It was like some neighbor down the block was burning leaves in his back yard. A couple of times, I sipped again at the scotch, just to remind myself that I still had a sense of taste and could still detect an aroma. The only appropriate beverage to accompany the first cigar would have been a glass of water. Out of sheer boredom, I left the last inch and a half unsmoked and then went inside to snatch another brand of cigar from the humidor. I rested the remaining cigars in my humidor and tried the second one five days later. It was a beautiful, sunny Wednesday morning and I had just finished breakfast and filled a second cup of coffee. Things were very different this time around. The cigar was very enjoyable, with hints of cedar, honey, coffee (maybe that was because of the accompanying beverage) and white pepper. I did find myself relighting the cigar a few times. By the time I reached the last inch and a half, the strength had picked up considerably. I smoked the cigar until I could no long hold it between the edges of my fingernails. I was left with a sweet, nutty aftertaste that was very satisfying. On the following Sunday morning, (again after breakfast with coffee) I smoked the third cigar and the experience was very much like the second one. After the first inch or so, I laid the cigar down and went inside the house and opened all the windows leading to the back yard. I turned on the stereo, put on a Beny MorΓ© CD and cranked up the volume. Returning outside, I just smoked the cigar and savored the moment. My neighbor told me I was the picture of contentment. My wife asked me how soon I would begin to clean the house. In summation, despite having started out with what was probably a 'sick' cigar, I found the Juan Lopez No. 2 cigars to be thoroughly enjoyable mild to medium smokes with a sweet, woodsy, nutty character and a substantial kick delivered at the end. I am grateful for having had the opportunity to participate in this taste test experience.
