Review - Montecristo 2 - 95/100

There is nothing quite like the Montecristo 2. This cigar, called the Piramide by the actual rollers of the cigars, is a great example of Cuban cigars craftmanship. It really has CUBA written on it wíth capital letters.

I really really love this cigar. The full flavor starts right from the first puff and really follows you through to the moment you lay it down to die out. This cigar offers perfect draw and excellent flavor every time - Never letting you down. That i can promise.

The Flavor start up with a rich and round tobacco flavor mixed with some cedary notes. The easy draw allows you to take big mouthfulls and let the smoke play on your tongue, but the large ring gauge keeps the burn cool enough not to make the cigar taste harsh at any point.

The second third offers you spicy, rich and generous flavor that intensifies with every draw. some hints of almond can be detected along the way. The last third gathers up all the flavors and ties it up in some woody notes and coffee-like aroma. The great aftertaste follows you for a long time and adds value to the experience even more.

Accompanied with even burn, beautiful looks (perfect wrapper and cap), firm ash and elegant smoke, the unique flavor make this one of the most desired cuban cigars of our time. And in my humble opinion, one of the very best.
