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..."

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

This is my desert island cigar. If I had a constant supply of these, a fathomless wine cellar, an equally endless supply of good books and a comfy chair parked on a white sand beach I would spend whatever years were to be given to me reclining in joyous repose and staring wistfully into an infinite middle distance

Just simply has to be 5*. Smoked one of these on my brothers wedding evening with a few chaps and the aroma was amazing - Family members who aren't even fans of cigars were keen to smell the smoke due to the richness of the smell. Would smoke another & recommend trying for the price!!

This is my first Montecristo No.2, and I can sat without any hesitation that it will not be my last, (God willing of course). A beautifully constructed cigar amongst the best I have ever seen at any price. The draw is as Bill mentions in his review, is simply heavenly, cool and easy with no effort required whatsoever. The flavour is full with a lovely balance of spice, nuttiness and creamy cedar, even my wife commented on how lovely the smell from it was and that's no mean feat! The burn is even with no need to re-light even when left for a few minutes. This is a treat even amongst the very finest of cigars and one that in time, I will come to look upon as an old friend, who's company while not frequent is very much welcome. The Montecristo No.2 is a very fine cigar with a well deserved reputation which it happily lives up to and exceeds, if you haven't yet tried one, you really should do so, as you are missing out on a bonafide giant killer. I cannot wait to see another in my humidor!
