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.
Smoked this one down to my fingers. Draw was perfect, burn consistent, taste was outstanding. I would put this cigar up against the cuban #2 any day of the week. I just wish it wasn't so pricey.
Did they fail to mention vintage 1999? What an addition to the Humidor. Montecristo "can not go wrong"
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.
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.
