The Montecristo No 2 Cigar is perhaps one of the most iconic cigars from one of the most famous of all the Cuban Cigar brands. This is a Figurado type cigar (i.e. it is a torpedo shape) and the particular “vitola” (the size and shape) is know as a Piramide, the name shape and size as the Partagas Serie P No 2. Is is considered by many to be the definitive Piramide shaped cigar.
Montecristo Cigars take their name from Alex Dumas’ famous book “The Count of Montecristo” which was a favourite when it was read to the cigar rollers, or Torcedores, whilst they worked. The factory was founded in 1935 and they make two ranges of cigars, the Linea Clasica, including this cigar, and the new Open Range. The Clasica range is a classic medium to full bodied range of cigars, whilst the Open range is a little lighter in style. Montecristo cigars are a perfectly balanced blend of selected tobaccos from the Vuelta Abajo which produces a medium to full flavour with a distinguished aroma. The No 2 is one of the original sizes of the Montecristo brand, which was created in Cuba by Alonso Menendez in 1935.
The Montecristo No 2 Cigar is an easy burning cigar with a controlled release of flavours. There are complex flavours and aromas of nutty, almond, cashew, chocolate, hints of orange peel, cedar around a leathery, earthy, woody core.
Smoking time approximately 1 hour.
