    I've Had That!

    Okay this is a controversial cigar. Some folks don't think it's all that great. I think many folks are biased against it because of all the celebrities that list it as their favorite cigar. Well I'm here to say... this is an incredible cigar. Creamy, chocolatey smoke that hits on every note. I could smoke a Monte #2 every day of the year.

    The Monte 2's I've had have totally been worth it...I'll get some more when my buddy returns from his "vacation"...;)

    I've had that! It has a little bit of a tough draw, but the flavors are just about perfect.

    One of the best Cubans you can get. But it really needs some aging time to be perfekt.

    A great BOTL whose name may begin with De and end with Ford gave me one. Still can't bring myself to smoke it. It's gonna get smoked for sure but sometimes when I get something so special I gotta work up to lighting it on fire. Once I get tired of smelling it I'll light it up! Lol

    I had that.
    This was my very first cigar (95') I ever had , while posted overseas. It was a great experience that I have fond memories of. The #2 is still one of my all time favorites. I agree with Eric this gets lots of bad press due to celebrate band wagon. I would recommend this smoke to anyone!!
    I will be overseas next week and have a good friend holding a few for me.

    Montecristo #2: the owner of my best cigar smoking experience to date. Cream soda. What a Cuban cigar should be.

    Years ago, I was guilty of getting too caught up in extravagant look of cigar bands and overlooked cigar with simple looking bands...I was terribly mistaking. The Montecristo no. 2 is one my favorite cigars to smoke. In fact, it was breakfast this morning.
