Review Notes: I think you almost need to specify the vintage of these cigars much like you do wine. I have had some very good Monte #2's, but this particular one from March 2000 was pretty bad. The burn and construction were okay, but the flavor was weak and hot.

Review Notes: This box was only 6 months old by the box code. Taht being said i gave one a try before putting them into "deep sleep" for awhile. They show quite a bit of promise although still raw. Much better than the couple boxes I have from a few years back. As much promise as this box shows, I still think the Monte #2 has seen better days.

"I've seen better examples"

Review Notes: I have seen much better examples of the Monte #2. This guy was from 1998, and was very dry and grassy. Not the rich taste I am used to from the Monte #2. I'll chalk this up to 1998 being a bad year for Cuban cigars, as they were pumping up volume in exchange for quality.

"Quality"

Review Notes: I have to admit this is one nice cigar. I'm sure there are better out there, but the quality of this Montecristo is hard to deny. Almost makes you sad that some comapny in the Dominican Republic is allowed to desecrate the name.
