Montecristo 2 Habana Review
By Staff of i Cigars
Rare 99 Rating
(Highest Rating for any Cigar)
The Montecristo 2 Habana has often been cited as the greatest cigar in the world.
While some might disagree, we do not, it is our favorite smoke hands down and we give it a perfect score of 99. There is no 100 in our system, since it starts at 0 and runs through 99, that is 100 steps and 99 is the 100th step.
This smoke is what a real Cuban cigar is all about. It is the Cuban that lights up my palate and tastes of chocolate and cinnamon dance about my mouth as I draw on what could be described as GODS CIGAR in my opinion.
The burn is perfect and the draw is perfect.
For hundreds of years natural pesticides have been used in Cuba and they must have included cinnamon to give the soil of Cuban its unique makeup of material. You may find hints of chocolate throughout other regions since Cocoa was native to the Americas and was all over the islands and central and south America for ages, but it is my opinion the soil of Cuba has had hundreds of years of pre-chemical pesticide attempts to control insects and that is part of the unique aspects of Cuban soil.
If you can find a box of these beauties get them and put them in the back of your humidor. Bring one out on a special occasion since if you smoked such perfection often, you wouldn’t appreciate how great this smoke is.
