Montecristo Platinum Habana #2
6 1/8 x 52 - Natural - Box of 27
Montecristo Habano No. 2 cigars are handcrafted with select, Mexican San Andres Cubano wrappers and a savory, medium-bodied, 3-nation filler blend. They burn perfectly with a marvelous aroma, presenting more depth and complexity than the classic Montecristos and closer in taste to the Cuban No. 2.
Tried lots of cigars but Montecristo is top of the line. This Platinum belicoso is no exception in spite of other reviews here. Been to the factory where these are made and there's many different brands being rolled in the same place but none receive the favorable treatment of a Montecristo. Just too expensive to call my everyday cigar but is always my choice for special occasions.
I purchased five of these and stored them in my Humidor for at least 2 months. The first cigar fell apart halfway thru the smoke...waited a few more months and smoked the 2nd and the outer leaf of the cigar fell apart before I was 1/3 of my way thru the smoke. I expected a lot better for a 1999 Vintage Cigar.
I have smoked two of these cigars in the past few months and have mixed feelings. The appearance is nice, draw is smooth and taste through most of the smoke is quite nice, but the burn is somewhat disappointing and the cigar loses much of its lustre after about 2/3 through.
