Construction is veiny and bumpy but that is my only complaint. The middle half of this cigar is like no other. There is a deep earthy flavor i cannot describe nor have i tasted in other cubans. Really must try.
These puppies were okay but with a little aging this lil guy will be a powerhouse! I know the potential of JL and these sticks are very young. A little time in the humidor should season this stick up! Another year in the humidor and this will get 10's across the board! Cuban Lous delivers again!
Ordered a box of JLSn2 and waiting for it all August. Its worth a while !
Long time passed from my last JLSn2; Colorado, thin veins, smelling great. Fresh ( Apr 2010 ). When light pepper and pepper, leather and caramel follows; at the second chocolate and nougat cream mixed with pepper.The last third with dark chocolate and strong spiced coffee. I'm used with Boli, Partagas and Cohiba and for this Juan Lopez Seleccion n°2 I have only a word :GREAT!
Got five of these in a sampler pack and this was the first of the sampler that I picked out. It was sunset on a warm fall day in Texas, sitting outside with the sun setting, beautiful oak trees to shade me and the sunset hi-liting the red berries on a small tree as I roasted the foot of this cigar. Its constructiion and beauty were outstanding, the burn was even and exceptionally consistent. The ash was a nice shade of gray, showing the toothiness of the aging of the wrapper. The flavor was not overpowering, but nice and spicy and full without the slap to the face of say a Partagas (which I dealy love by the way). Now I must decide if I want to purchase a box of these, their construction quality alone drives me in that direction. I think that they and the Partagas will be my robustos of choice for a while (this Juan Lopez to replace the Bolivar Royal Corona in my rotation). Thanks again Cuban Lou's for exposing me to a new cigar.
This is the only Juan Lopez I've had but I enjoyed it thoroughly. Black pepper base with vanilla and leather. Nice floral notes come through in the second third. A lot of cigar for a little price. Copious amounts of smoke and great construction. On my list of humi staples.
Together with the Seleccion No. 1, these are undeniably the two best cigars from Juan Lopez. These cigars have propelled Juan Lopez from a 2nd class manufacturer into the league of great cigar makers. The "robusto size" smoker will really appreciate this cigar.
