Montecristo No2 is a classic vitola in the brand's range. Easy burning with a controlled release of Montecristo flavours; many fans look no further than this. A lot more leather present from the start than some other Montecristo cigars. The brand's famous black pepper and earthy character are obvious from the start. A little too easy to smoke past the band if you can handle it, as it's thick ring gauge does a great job of not having the smoke overheat, even if you smoke at a quicker than average pace.
