Cigar Aficionados No.1 Cigar of the Year in 2013 with an outstanding score of 96/100.
Dimensions: Torpedo 6 1/8" x 52
Country of Origin: Cuba
Created in 1935 in Havana by Menendez Garcia y Cia., Montecristo is a mainstay of the Cuban cigar portfolio. The Montecristo No.2 has set the standard and become the benchmark for Cuban Torpedo shaped cigars.
This cigar is filled with rich flavours of leather, sweet spices and tangy wood.
"The undisputed king of torpedoes is the Montecristo No. 2. The stately smoke with the pointy tip is known the world over and ranks as one of the best-selling cigars in the Cuban cigar portfolio. And unlike some things that sell well, Monte 2s combine commercial success with critical acclaim. We have rated Montecristo No. 2s dozens of times in Cigar Aficionado blind tastings. The first time was more than 20 years ago, when we gave it a score of 94 points. This score of 96 is the highest rating we have ever bestowed on the cigar in a blind taste test."
