Montecristo Yellow #2 Torpedo
6 x 50 - Natural - Single
Montecristo #2 - it's the CLASSIC! Crafted with only the choicest, aged Dominican tobaccos, it is hand rolled for a smooth, even burn - and packed with more flavor than you'd expect from a CT-wrapped cigar. But this is Montecristo, so the bar is set high. Complexity in spades - buy your #2s today!
I purchased these about a month ago with the $40 AMEX promo. At $290 these are usually not worth the price. But if you can get them at a heavy discount like I did, then jump on them. They start off very crisp and creamy, gradually developing into a flavor profile of coffee, cedar, and light pepper while still retaining the cream. Smoke is thick and tasty. There are major differences in taste and aroma between these and the Classic series. These are a little stronger, and have more pepper in them. They also cost more. Catch them on sale!
Draw was good but appearance was a bit flawed, it had a a few tears in the wrapper but only cosmetic because it didn t leak any. Burn was meh, it didn t require any touch-ups but did require a few extra puffs to keep the wrapper burning. Taste was fairly good 88/100, nice and smooth all the way through but a little boring.
I favor full flavored maduros, but this is one of the few "mild"cigars that I find completely satisfying. The flavor, burn, and construction are all exceptional. The only negative is the price, which is clearly overblown.
