Montecristo Monte Jacopo No.2 Cigar Review

This 6×54 box pressed stick features a dark brown soft satin wrapper with minimal veins, tight invisible seams, a firm even pack and rich sweet wood and tobacco aroma. First light reveals a very snug draw with minimal mild-medium smoke output with soft wood and tobacco flavors and a short clean finish. The first third opens the draw producing normal amounts of medium bodied smoke with just a subtly sweet soft airy wood and an almost minty aftertaste on the short finish. Hitting the 1/2 way point at 35 minutes the ash drops in a solid chunk, performance is excellent with a razor sharp burn and body is up to a medium. Flavors shift slightly dropping the sweetness and the wood gets deeper with a parched mouthfeel on the finish. Ending out at 1:10 The last third continues the same performance to the nub. Thank you very much to Altadis for sending this sample for review!

    I liked it when the sun lit you up like the baby at the end of “2001 A Space Odyssey”.

    Lol, another “Sunnofva” cigar. I think 1/2 of all the sticks I smoke are Sunnofva’s. The clean almost minty aftertaste has me intrigued. Might just pick one up next trip to the B&M.

    BTW, Bryan, thanks for what you do. I figured if you were doing it for free cigars, and the cigars you review go for about $2-$20, and it took you 1 1/2 to 2hrs per cigar for smoking time plus editing, you’d be making the equivalent of $1 to at best $13.33/hour. Thanks for doing it for the love of tasty smokes!
