Montecristo No. 2 BOX OF 25 AB

Price $916.89


The most famous of the many famous Cuban cigar brands started only in 1935 as a new brand from Menendez, Garcia y Cia., then the owners of the H. Upmann brand. The name is reported to have been inspired by Alexandre Dumas' 1844 novel Le Comte de Monte Cristo. The strength is medium; in fact, it has become the standard by which all other Cuban cigars are now judged.


Montecristo is the best known and probably the most appreciated brand of Habanos throughout the world. It forms the benchmark for many Habanos smokers against which other brands are judged.

Today the range, which was originally composed of a narrow assortment strictly numbered from 1 to 5, covers every level of the cigar enthusiasts’ needs from the majestic Montecristo A to the tiny Joyita.

In 2009, for the first time, born in Montecristo a new line: MONTECRISTO OPEN which incorporates 4 new vitolas on the brand: Eagle (54 x 150 mm), Regata (46 x 135mm), Master (50 x 124 mm) and Junior (38 x 110mm), designed to satisfy all Montecristo lovers as well as to welcome the new generations who enjoy the pleasures of living “alfresco”.

Montecristo’s perfectly balanced blend is created exclusively with selected leaves from the Vuelta Abajo region, home of the finest tobaccos in the world. Its distinctive medium to full flavour and distinguished aroma appeal equally to both new and experienced smokers.


Cuban Cigar Review

Montecristo No 2

6 1/8 x 52 torpedo

reviewed by Cameron M

Monte Cristo #2 - This is a true Cuban classic that has stood the test of time.

The Cuban Montecristo No 2 torpedo has been a consistent best seller for years for Cuban cigar makers and it shows every time you smoke this cigar.

I choose this particular cigar because it had a darker oily wrapper at 4/6.

My cocktail of choice was a Belvedere vodka martini with 2 olives.

As soon as I lit this cigar I had strong favours of dark chocolate with a hint of cinnamon and dried tea. About a third into my cigar I had notes of cedar and wet leather.

This is a very enjoyable cigar my overall rating is 93/100. This cigar is a must have in any humidor and sets the standard for quality Cuban cigars.

CA Magazine's most recent rating was a 92/100 in Nov 2011
