I've lived in Europe, Turkey, Asia, and visited Havana. There is no better cigar in existence, IMHO! Now that I live in California, where you rarely can find a decent place to smoke a good-sized cigar (even in my beach condo, where its ok to smoke pot, but not cigars or cigarettes as they are "tobacco products" and grass is not!), I rarely get the chance to enjoy the 90 minutes of pure delirium produced by this king of cubanos!

        What can one say... A very clean draw and great flavor. A bit on the mild side but still, a wonderful cigar. Great construction, nice even burn, good draw... Eveything you would expect from a Monte....

          This is the best cigar I've experienced. Hard to now try anything else. I've smoked half the box and none have failed to impress. Great taste, draw, look and feel. These smooth torpedos have blown me away.

                Okay, a box of Monte #2's was my first order from Cuban Lou's in June of 2008, it had a box code of 2007. I have left some to age in my humidor for 3 years, had to try one over the weekend. Looked great (keep my humidor in impeccable humidity and temp), roasted the foot with my St. Dupont, the dry as superior, the smoke was creamy and delicious, the flavor was outstanding, slight pepper, rich dark chocolate, mild woodsie taste, overall a 9.5 out of 10. Well worth the wait of 3 years, got 2 left from that box, gonna wait another year to try one. Got to buy a new box of Monte #2's this month, my humidor is getting low - a Cuban Lou's shopping spree is about to happen.

                  good experience with a Monte No2, wonderful flavors and burns, personally prefer Upmann No2 over Monte though, but can never go wrong with this smoke, definitly worth a try if you havn't experiene one yet

                    I love Cubans. This is the most cigar I can afford. I like this one so well I don't need to taste the more expensive cigars, because a Cuban Montecristo #2 is all I want in a smoke.

                      This stick was given to me by a friend of my who acquired it somewhere in Caribenian, therfore I was somwhat skeptical (lots of fakes come from this region), especially that the pre-light aroma was almost nonexistent. But, upon lighting - WOW- great typical Monti taste and aroma of well aged cuban tobacco! Construction was perfect, razor sharp burn with firm silvery ash that lasted well past mid point (OK I cheated smoking it holding vertically).
                      I think I found my new favorite; I would almost give it a perfect rating, but I am saving it for a 10+ year old Cohiba Esplendido which has been sitting in my humidor for some time.

                        This cigar needs lots of aging. Great construction, even draw
                        and burns well- but I dont feel it lives up the hyped ratings.
                        Exhibits nice aroma but plain tabacco, a hint of spice and and
                        tad of wood can be tasted. Intensifies as it burns- but expect
                        a single flavor thru out.

                            I always try & order a few singles when I place an order from Cuban Lou's, and I highly recommend it. Especially if there are brands and formats you have yet to try. Lou's singles are what attracted me to the site and the service from Kevin coupled w/quality cigars has me loyal!
                            So the Monte #2 single I got was fantastic, tasted as if there was some good age on it. The smooth chocolate coffee & a hint of vanilla surrounded by great clean tobacco flavors. Oh and of course the great clouds of thick smoke pouring out of this awesome format!

                              After checking out all the reviews, I decided to break down and buy a box. I fired one up yesterday and it seemed as if the draw was very tight...........burned a bit uneven as well. Maybe it was just that one cigar (I hope) but I'm gonna let em sit for a bit and try another in a month or so.

                                  This is an all around classic cuban cigar. The strength of this stick is not overpowering, something sometimes hard to find for a beast like the #2. The nutty, earthy, spicy and sweet flavors develop slowly and create a fantastic, long finish. Definatly a must have for those new and old to cigars... Eat a good meal first though or it'll get ya!

                                    Beautiful oily dark brown wrapper with plenty of give when squeezed; but not too loosly packed. Pre-light draw was perfect and offered up flavors of sweet natural tobacco.

                                    Post-light brought out flavors of rich molasses and sweet spice that turned to more of a woody taste, with undertones of cream and vanilla.

                                    As the smke progressed, I picked up some citrus, coffee, undertones of chocolate, and an aftertaste of roasted nuts.

                                    The burn was perfect and produced tons of bluish-white smoke. I have smoked several of these cigars. This one left no question as to the basis for the hype.

                                      Before I started smoking Cuban's, I knew the status of the Montecristo #2. I tried a Dominican one that I purchased for $12. retail. As a beginner, I thought it was good. But now that I have been smoking for several years and have had the opportunity to smoke every good cigar on the planet, there is no comparison between the two as far as flavor, construction, and burn. The Cuban Monty #2 is simply one of the best most consistant cigars I have smoked, and I smoke top tier cigars. It has become my personal favorite and I often recommend them to my friends that haven't had one. The first box of 10 I ordered from Cuban Lou's were perfectly aged with a little flowering. I am seriously addidcted to Cuban Lou's for your quality and prompt delivery. Thanks Kevin and staff, Len B.

                                          This was an oily cigar with a golden brown wrapper. Silky smooth and only a few veins running down the wrapper. Pre-light draw was nice, with taste of pure tobacco.

                                          After lighting I was greeted with a medium-mild white pepper spice along with notes of citrus and vanilla.

                                          The smoke flowed perfectly and the ash was strong. Delicious roasted nuts, a perfect amount of spice, and rich tobacco remained through out the experience. This was a good smoke! A real classic.

                                            5+ year old No. 2. That's all I have to say. I have ordered more, but I know they will not taste as good until they age. Lucky for me, I still have 2 more of the vintage sticks, and their box/ cedar. Believe me, I'm gonna try and homogenize them. I had bought one of these on my 21st birthday, and I loved cigars from then on. I have tried lots of cigars at my local cigar shop, but I personally think they taste like crap. I don't like other cigars. I only like Monty No.2s! I even tried the Dominican version. I did not enjoy it. I went back to this store and bought the guy out of all the Cuban No.2s (he had only 4). The sticks I have appear to be darker than the golden brown sticks I see on many sites. More of a chocolate color. not spicy, not sour, not acidic. I dont know how they do it. keep up the good work!!

                                              I smoked one that was given to me by a bud and this was a very good cigar. It had all the Monecristo flavor that sticks with you after the cigar is gone. I was told this was a 2008 so it needs more time in the old hunidor that is for sure. I was also given a Upmann #2 and I think I enjoyed that a tad more. This smoke had more leather taste where the Upmann had a musty great taste to it.

                                                        Unfortunately for me the first Cuban I smoked (10 years ago) was a Monty #2 and it was absolutely incredible. Great construction, gorgeous color, superb aroma, and a flavor that was out of this world. However as the years have passed the quality of this cigar has gone down. Not only is it mass produced but it has the highest number of conterfeits (next to Cohiba) of the Cubans. Even when I'm 100% sure that I'm smoking a geniuine Cuban Monty...the experience just isn't the same as it used to be. I guess I'm like a heroin adict chasing their first high. I used to walk around saying that the Cuban Monty#2 was my favorite cigar of all time. I can't say that anymore due to the inconsistency in my smoking exerience with the stick. However if you are lucky to get a good one....they are still a fantastic cigar!

                                                          Went in to work for a few hours this morning to run some reports and check out the year-end numbers. Oh yeah, looking good! Came home and decided to fire up a Montecristo No. 2 to celebrate a good year! This was one very oily cigar with a golden brown wrapper that was silky smooth except for a few veins that ran the length. I clipped the head and found a very nice draw with taste of pure tobacco.

                                                          I torched the foot getting a good fire going, and the smell of the smoke was incredible before even taking a draw. After a couple good puffs, I took a long draw and was greeted with a medium smoke and mild, white pepper spice. I’m not sure if it’s because Christmas just passed, but the first thought that popped into my head was sugar cookies. Yes, sugar cookies along with notes of citrus zest and vanilla. Oh my was this good!

                                                          The burn was sharp through the first inch or so, and smoke flowed perfectly with the resistance spot on. The ash was strong, a mottled light and dark gray that I ashed at the inch mark. Halfway in and delicious roasted nuts and just straightforward, rich tobacco came through in the perfect, medium smoke. The burn did get a little crazy on in, however corrected itself just fine.

                                                          There was a perfect spice in the smoke and an incredibly lasting finish of delicious tobacco with that Monte twang. Fantastic! Towards the end the strength increased a notch and the flavors of strong tobacco continued with worn leather and hints of chocolate. What an amazing smoke, one of the best Montes I’ve had to date!

I had two in row for one night and I have to say it was awesome experience. Very nice an elegant cigar, in my case perfect in one word. I had perfect cut and I lit cigar with mu Nibo torch flame lighter. What sweet vanila aroma I had, moreover the same sweet in moments even floral taste did not change until the end of cigar, I had almost burn up my fingers.

I finally lit one up after a fantastic dinner at my wife's and I favorite steakhouse. We retired to the patio where the temperature was in the upper 60°'s the air was still and still some heat radiating from the day from the concrete.

                                                                  As always, this Monte #2 was well constructued, however it did have a little larger than normal veins on the underside of the cigar. I clipped the tip with my Xikar cigar scissors and made a perfect cut, the cigar lit beautifully, although it took some time since this is a big stick.

                                                                  Almost immediately you could see large bellows of smoke boom from this stogie. It was mellowed out very nicely after the years in the humidor. This was even more pleasant as a deep cedar taste was imparted into the well know Monte 2 taste of floral, mineral, and nuts. The burn line was near perfect, as the burn was razor sharp. This was alomst a 2 hour stick and was wonderfully paired with several glasses of Grahm's Six grapeds port.

                                                                  I have ordered additional boxes and hope they age as well as these ones today.

Had a nice dinner and sat out side with a nice Scotch. Outside temp was approx 71 degrees. Took it out of the box and just kept looking at its perfect construction. This Cigar is good from the begining, you will need some time as it is a good size cigar. The draw was perfect. This will be a cigar that I will always have in the humidor!

I found it to be one of the worst cubans I have tried to date, and that is including the very first I smoked which was a Guantanamera crystal. If Marc is indeed correct (and after experiencing this cigar I would say that he is) the quality control just is not there for these cigars. It had a very pleasant smell and taste to start with and looked to be very well constructed. as it burned down though it canoed AND went out several times despite relighting and frequent draws in order to keep it burning. I could not put it down (not in a good way) if I let it go for more than 30 seconds without a deep draw (often 2 or 3 in a row in order to get a good smoke) it would go out. It was quite annoying. needless to say I would not buy another one of these. And for those who would say I got a fake and I have no idea what I was talking about It was a real one, I watched the guy open a brand new box (cutting the Cuban seals and everything) and take it out of the box and hand it to me. It was a genuine Cuban, just a very poor one.

The biggest problem with the Monecristo No. 2 is quality control. They are produced in half a dozen factories on the Island and this makes it extremely difficult to produce a half way standard product. Some boxes are excellent others very mediocre. For you true cigar enthusiasts I would recommend either the Vegas Robaina Unicos (a better smoke at a smaller cost) or go all out, get off the porch and play with the big dogs and buy the larger, more expensive, but infinately better San Cristobal Muralla's. When you buy these two brands in Cuba, the Cubians nod knowingly at you, when you line up with the tour bus crowd to buy your 50 Montecristo No. 2's they can tell that you probably read about them in a cigar magazine.

The construction seems very relable, draw and burn tend to be excellent, and they are a great size. The torpedo format is convenient to smoke and also I feel easy to cut.

Beautiful looking, well constructed, one of the best Habanos around. However, the taste was a little too strong for my pallet. The wrapper was a little less than perfect. I definitely prefer the smooth, flavor filled taste of the Partagas Serie P No. 2 over the Monte. No point in arguing opinions. Personal preference is all I can say. I will let the other one that I have sit for a while in my humidor and re-evaluate it in a year or two.

Upon lighting this cigar I find a faint taste of ripe cherries that diminishes as it is smoked. As the mild fruitiness diminishes a very faint dark chocolate flavor is detectd. This smoke is very mild to an experienced smoker yet it is still considered to be full of flavor. It is not overpowering and the construction is excellent, no draw problems with this cigar. I just received another box to put in my humidor for aging, though it is good right out of a fresh box as well.

After snipping part of the pyramid top, the unlit draw is magnificent. The cigar is constructed well with very little variance in shade. The flavor is neither mild nor harsh, leaving the room smelling pleasurably scented.

This was my first experience with the No. 2, and I am glad I tried it! So far it is my 2nd choice among the coigars I maintain in my humidor, just behind the Montecristo No. 4- This has more to do with the fact that I am a casual smoker (1-2 week) than anything else. These cigars are best following a good meal and go great with a Merlot or a Bourbon (my old man prefers Scotch), and deserve time and attention. You will not be dissapointed!

At one time I had to drive up to Canada and sneak them across the border but now I can just have them delivered at a great price. I agree with other reviews that say this cigar is better with age but I never can seem to wait that long to enjoy them. I say they're great at any age.

The experience was most enjoyable. The perfect way to top off a good grilled steak and a fine Merlot. The smoke was smooth with just the right bite. The flaovor got better as it burned. No hot flavor at all.

The Monticristo # 2 is a cigar that goes great with a nice single malt out on the patio or on the golf course. The construction of this fine cigar is second to none. It has a great bold flavor and has a very consistant burn. If you are looking for a cigar that will only get better with age this is the cigar for you.

The construction was less than stellar and the flavor was noticeably harsh. The cigar was not a dense as I rememebered from previous experiences and the wrapper did not maintain it's integrity for the full smoke. The harshness in taste continued to build during the smoke and was never supplanted by true flavor at anytime. Perhaps a bad box or perhaps Bolivar Belicosos Finos are just a better cigar these days.

There are countless reviews online about all the different flavors people taste off this cigar so I won't go there. All I have to say is that in the 13 years I've been smoking cigars, Montecristos have always been consistent between sticks and boxes, and are always great right out of the box. The No.2 is at the upper-mid end of this brand so a well stored one of these wont disappoint.

Even though these are young they still are my all time favorite. Its know mistake why these are always ranked so high. Lots of rich smoke and the taste is a medium to full with hints of spice. Anyone who enjoys cuban cigars owes it to themselves to try the monte #2. I will never be without them in my humidor. Thanks Cuban Lous for the speedy shipping and such awsome service. Your #1.

I smoked one that was two years old a few days ago. Each #2 improves with time, but it still isn't quite there yet. I have faith that these can improve even more. This is a med-full smoke, but more on the medium side. It is well balanced in flavor and slightly complex. The overall and common flavor notes on this cigar are earth, charred cedar, and spice. You may be awarded with hints of cream as well. These are one of my favorite smokes and will always have a place in my collection. Next to flavor, the consistency of construction, draw, and burn leave a lasting impression on any smoker.

Great construction, perfect draw, loads of flavor. Tasted alot of pleasent dark chocolate and coffee flavors while smoking the cigar, no bitterness. With such a strong flavor profile for such a young cigar I cannot imagine how good these would be with some long term ageing.

                                                                                                                Montecristo No. 2 is one of the highest and best selling Habano's cigars in the world.

I always laugh when I hear someone say that Cuban cigars are "too strong", thinking either that they have never tried a Montecristo No. 2, or have wasted a lot of money on counterfeit cigars. This cigar defines richness and full flavor, and the quality is year in and year out consistant, even when other Cuban cigars a few years ago were showing the results of a stretched out market. Why waste money on "boutique" cigars that are so in vogue today when you are only an order away from one of the world's finest and more affordable cigars.

What's more - the value is incomparable to anything else out there. The No. 2 will continue to be my smoke of choice until the unlikely time when something else knocks it off the pedestal.

The chocolate brown, toothy wrapper is supple and the toothy texture has a great feel in the mouth. The flavor is earty and consistent with each cigar. Loads of smoke with a nutty taste. My go to cigar when I want an absolutely great smoke.

They are very smokeable soon after arrival. A relatively quick smoke - an hour or so, and extremely consistent in quality. Nicely veined, a very nice spicy smoke. Only complaint is they don't come with a clip to finish the last 1/2 inch. Their finish is that good. Honestly gets better to the end in contrast to the bitter end that many of the Dominicans seem to develop.

                                                                                                                          A definite must have in a well stocked humidor.

I have never had a box of cubans that had such a recent box code. I received these in early March so they dont get much fresher. The flavor and draw was typical for a No.2 but developed a bitter bite towards the end. The appearance was very nice except for a few green spots I noticed on a couple sticks when placing them into my humidor. These are great cigars now but are outstanding if you can let them sit for a year.

My third experience with #2's...I don't know about letting all 25 sit in the humidor for a year plus. I am going to try my best to let about 5 of them sit in the humidor for a year. After only a few weeks, 9 are gone...phenomenal smoke. *******Note- had one out of 9 that was a hard draw and could not finish. 8 out of 9, perfectly rolled...otherwise I would have rated a 10 across the board.

The Montecristo No. 2 is a beautiful cigar, excellent construction, oils exuding from the wrapper even in a recent production, perfect in every way, upon lighting you get what I like to call the cuban strength, a great smell from the leaves trying to fight the flame, excellent draw. The burning was a little off at the middle but it corrected itself. The beginning is a little spicy, cedary, but you start to sense the creaminess that characterizes the rest of the cigar, some coffee throughout, unfortunately all these flavors only make a brief appearance and then become almost indistinguishable, this might be due to the early production, I only left it in my humidor for about 90 days before lighting it and it's from an '07 box. You don't get that increasing strength at the end, it's a balance that can be good when you get through a wide spectrum of flavors but unfortunately this was not the case. This cigar with this age can be taken everywhere and be smoked anytime, I'd even consider it to be an early day cigar.

I ordered a box and was excited to try one the first day they arrived. These things smell and look amazing right out of the box. Unfortunately, the first one I smoked was plugged, so I couldn't tell how good/bad they were. I put the box in my humidor for a few days and tried a second one today. It was very good. Good taste and very smooth. I'm going to let the rest age a while before I try another one.

This cigar does need some age to enhance the flavor and burn but are still good straight out of the box. It is also the tale of two halves. It does burn and taste better during the 2nd half of the smoke. I am going to have to find some discipline somewhere and let them age in my humi. It is definitely a winner and enjoyable 1+ hour of smoking pleasure. I am always looking for a good medium to full body smoke and am exceptionally thankful to be a part of the Cuban Lou's family where I can learn and share smoking experiences. Cheers ;)

Perfect draw, and the taste gets better by the inch with spice/cedar notes. Every one I've had, I hated to put down. I look forward to trying one aged for a few years (if I can put some away for that long). A must try!

Wonderful notes of wood/cedar and spice. The cigar starts off slow, then quickly gains steam. Took me about an hour and a half to smoke this bad boy.

I don\'t know about you, but I can\'t wait the 8 to 10 days for them to get here. I love them right out of the box. I don\'t buy a six pack of my favorite beer and think, this will be good next year. I am probably offending you purists. I buy cigars to smoke and enjoy now.Never know, I might not be here next year. I love the # 2\'s today! Louie

I want to stress one of his points, however. These cigars should be seen as Long Term Investments. Buy a box, then put them in the Nursery for at LEAST a year to bring out the complexity in the smoke.

                                                                                                                                                          I have enjoyed more #2's over the years than any other Habana, and am convinced that lighting up a Montecristo #2 without proper aging is a waste of what eventually would have been a fabulous cigar.

                                                                                                                                                          Patience, my friends.... patience. You will be rewarded handsomely.

What never ceases to amaze Me about this cigar is it's complexity. I have had them dark, light and in between and the number 2 always has incredible depth.I'm smoking some from 02 now and I Just purchased a few boxes from Kevin and I'm going to put them to sleep for a few years, at which time they will be mind blowing. A cigar that MUST be experienced.
