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

91 / 100

"...A mini torpedo with a gorgeous wrapper. The smoke is dense and chewy showing contrasting, yet substantial notes of almonds, earth and white pepper that become more profound with each puff..."

My first impressions of this cigar are quite good: Construction was solid, burn was even, draw was open and I could puff away at a slow pace without it going out on me. As far as the flavours were concerned it had that classic Cuban profile and the unmistakable Montecristo flavours, although it wasnt quite as full on as the regular No. 2. Very creamy from start to finish with very mild hints of spice and almonds although I agree with the review from Scott that the cigar actually seems to get blander as it progressed. In my limited experience most cigars start to wake up in the second or final third but not so with the Petit No. 2. This isnt necessarily a bad thing since the flavours were very enjoyable, but it did leave me feeling like I wanted a little bit more out of the cigar. I think the smoking time of 30-45 minutes is pretty accurate provided youre the kind of person who will smoke down to the nub and doesnt mind the smoke getting a little hot. While it was an enjoyable 45 minute smoke, the fact that the cigar didnt really seem to develop beyond the first light loses it points. Ive got a few more in the humidor and will probably try another one next weekend to see if anything changes.

Loved this one. Nice 40 minute smoke with lots of flavour took my time as I normally smoke only lighter cigars needed to spike it through with a wooden skewer as it was a bit juicy but it didnt put me off like some cheaper smokes. Will be buying more.

Unfortunately I spoiled my first experience with the Petit No. 2 due to a slip of the hand during lighting which incinerated the wrapper and led to burn problems, but I had 3 more and so onwards and upwards. My second experience however was divine, the first third was actually the best part of the whole cigar with a lovely creamy, buttery and spicy taste. Past the 2nd third these flavours made way and I got rich flavours of wood and nuts but with a mellow smoothness about them, never overpowering. in the 3/3 the signature buttery flavour showed it's face again in combination with a balanced and no nonesense rich Cuban tobacco taste. Simply superb. I wish I could smoke these every day but my bank would strongly disagree.

The cigar looked flawless, smelt amazing and had been stored perfectly. From first light it was nothing short of BRILLIANT. The first 1/3 was fantastic! Not very spicy, more Monty number 2 esc, cream and buttery. After the first third, either the cigar dulled, or I got used to it. The stick turned slightly blander and less exciting in its flavours, but as I say, this could have been me settling into it and taking the No.2 for granted after the initial influx of perfection. The draw was perfect throughout, and the burn: Faultlessly even. Could I buy a box of these? I'd probably have to try a second to be sure, but first I want to directly compare the Regatta this weekend. A Cigar I have smoked many times before, so I expect a close competition. I am not the number 2's biggest fan, as it can be overwhelmingly buttery to the pallet. But as usual, there is a time and a place for a multitude of different smokes. My date last night with the petit was pretty dam good! Scott

Pretty much perfect little 40 minutes of enjoyment. Nice strength, no bitterness, enough complexity to make it a grown ups cigar. This is definitely going on my favourites list from now on in. Would thoroughly recommend.
