The Montecristo No 2 is arguably the world’s most recognized cigar, this Piramide which is 6 1/8 ” and with a 52 ring gauge has delivered incredible flavours to cigar lovers for decades. The popularity of this cigar has propelled the Cuban brand to achieve success that couldn’t have been imagined back in 1935 when Alonso Menendez bought the Particulares factory in Havana and created Montecristo.
At one point not long ago all cigar factories in Havana were rolling the Montecristo No 2 to keep up with world wide demand until the decision was made to scale back production and refocus on quality. Cigar Aficionado’s number one cigar for 2013 was the Montecristo No 2 which tells you that today this cigar is smoking beautifully when either young or after some time spent aging in the humidor.
The Montecristo No 2’s full bodied flavour profile includes subtle notes of rich leather and spices, which may include cinnamon and nutmeg but this cigar always has that unmistakable rich woody twang. This full flavoured torpedo pairs beautifully with single malt Scotch whiskey whether it is the peaty Lagavulin or the rich smoky Oban. There is that unmistakable burst of caramel on your palate when the two forces meet which always keeps us coming back for more. Others will choose a stout ale to pair with this cigar while some are content with cool water to concentrate more fully on this rich smoking experience.
