Montecristo is the best known and probably most appreciated brand of Habanos throughout the world. It forms the benchmark for many Habanos smokers against which other brands are judged. 

The name comes from the hero of Alexandre Dumas' famous novel 'The Count of Montecristo,' which was a firm favourite when read by the Lector to the Torcedores (cigar makers) at the factory where it was founded in 1935. 

The original Montecristo range of sizes was composed of a narrow assortment numbered from 1 to 5. Today it consists of a wide variety of vitolas to cover every level of the cigar enthusiast's needs. 

Montecristo's perfectly balanced blends are created exclusively with selected filler and binder leaves from the Vuelta Abajo zone, home of the finest tobaccos in the world. 

Tasting Notes

This is a rich and flavourful cigar and it burns very well. A bomb of rich spices including cinnamon and a pleasant sweetness emerges throughout the cigar. A great Havana among fine gauges.


92 / 100

"...The complex smoke of this torpedo offers an elegant interplay of almond and orange peel notes that frame a leathery, woody core..."

This is and always has been the best Montecristo and one of the best cigars out of Cuba rich complex and very moreish... Perfect draw and burn, correcting itself after lightning... lasting over an hour... (never let it go out and never smoke to fast and over heat, both deminish the flavours of all cigars... ) I had this yesterday with Ardbeg which highlighted the orange zest for me, though with coffee itself and the vanilla and complex woods with chocolate and the other complex notes including almond and honey not lost with either beverage, as they wont with whatever you choose with this wonderful cigar, that should be bought by the box to enjoy, but also try and permit some to have at least a couple of birthdays after purchase before sampling...

Writing this review whilst smoking the last of 3 since the lockdown. Its settled down after the light. The burn hasnt been prefect but nothing that didnt self correct, slowing down helped I think and its also let the coffee cool down too. Its one of those scorching hot days weve been having so I wasnt that sure a hot coffee and a cigar were called for. Silly. Its a no2 and it smokes cool with a light smoke and smooth but certain draw. The cedar, pepper, spice are all perfectly balanced with no one aroma overpowering the others. Its hard to know where the coffee ends and the cigar starts. The garden pairties are tuned out of focus and there is relaxation.

Fist one of these consumed yesterday after sitting in my humidor for about 8 months. Was bought as a gift and was waiting for an opportunity to try this as had quite a few of the Diplomaticos No.2 And been very impressed. Have to say this stick wasn’t a disappointment either, great even burn, good draw all the way and a good 1.5-2 inches before losing any ash. Only had to re-light once about 3/4 in after losing majority of ash and sat for a few mins. Will be on the shopping list for next time

I purchased a single Monte 2 back in August 2018 and finally got around to smoking it.The flavours were phenomenal; smooth and creamy to begin with, gradually developing into a combination of almond, cedar and spice, the smoke leaving a oily finish on the lips and palette. Unfortunately the construction was definitely not up to scratch; The draw was so loose it felt like I was sucking through an empty straw, I had to double-puff regularly to get decent smoke output and it went out 3-4 times in the space of an hour if I put it down for more than just 30 seconds. In the final third the cigar finally started smoking like a chimney and the flavours really kicked it up a notch but the strength kicked up too and since Im a bit of a lightweight I had to lay the cigar down... before having a little lie down myself! Despite all the problems I had with the Monte 2 it was still by far the most enjoyable and best tasting cigar I have had to date. On my budget the Monte 2 is by no means an everyday smoke and buying a 10/25 is unlikely, but setting aside a pack of 3 for special occasions is definitely not out of the question! The Monte 2 has really shown me why Cuban cigars hold such status, it really is in a league of its own.

My first time trying the No2, i usually smoke the No3 or 4, this is without doubt the best cuban cigar Ive had to date. Bit pricey buying the pack of 3 but worth every penny when you smoke it. Definitely recommend
