It is now time to discover three cigars for the warm weather. From earthy bodies to spicy leather, if you have not gotten around one of these, then you shall this summer.
This No.2, often compared to the Montecristo No.2, is a cigar that changes character with age. Young, the blend is mild and may appear bland, but this grows and amplifies with age. From 5 years on, the No. 2 sports a clean tobacco taste with very subtle herbal flavors and gets more powerful the older it gets. Can be aged beyond 10 years to get the ultimate smoke.
This medium bodied cigar has all the potential to develop into a great Cuban. The blend is such, that age brings the blend to life. We get notes of earthy/wood coming through in the first phase and a definite change in gear in the second phase. Powerful finish. This cigar will come into its prime after 8/10 years, but young reveals a freshness that is very pleasant.
Release 2015, this is the Half Corona size from Montecristo. New band, familiar Montecristo blend of spicy leather. The small ring gauge and size means this cigar will quickly heat up, so a well-paced smoke is necessary to get the best of the blend. Great small cigar to enjoy with an espresso or green tea. This is a go-to companion smoke of the highest calibre.
