Montecristo No.2 Cigar Review

J.R. - (Chicago)

To borrow a term from my 14 year old daughter... "OMG, this is just SO delicious!" The Montecristo No.2 Cigar is now officially my all-time favorite cigar.

Ok, so I may not have traveled the world smoking every brand, and I've only been smoking for 4 or 5 years now, but in the 20 or so different cigars I have smoked, the Montecristo No.2 is just hands down a near religious experience.
I believe that smoking a cigar should be an event that you look forward to for a while, enjoy for several hours, and talk about for days. For me, this cigar ticked all the boxes. 

There is a lot of talk about how good the Montecristo No.2 cigar is, and I am always cautious of too much hype. But the critic's are right. This is smooth, complex, rich, and changes throughout the whole smoke.

You can pick up on different subtle notes as you sit and puff away. It is a very firmly constructed cigar, and burns with a lot of smoke. You need to pull on it a bit harder, due to the tight packing.

It has a nice spice to it, but no bad aftertaste or tongue burn. It is very smooth, I have read other reviews calling it 'creamy'... not sure, but I guess it could make sense.

I can't get enough of them, when I can get them...
