I screwed up – this is a FAKE Cuban Montecristo No.2 Cigar Review! See my explanation and apology here: http://cigarobsession.com/2014/03/01/i-owe-you-guys-a-big-apology/
This 6 1/8×52 belicoso shaped stick features a dark brown wrapper with a firm lumpy pack, small veins, tight seams, a butter soft oily feel and faint wood aroma. First light reveals a perfect draw with plentiful smoke producing medium-full bodied flavors of a smooth oily slightly sweet tobacco that shifts to a deeper but smooth earth through the long finish. The first third produces a big body of a very zingy and black peppered earth both on the draw and finish. It’s smooth but there is no oil or creme, it’s very simple and powerful on the palate. 40 minutes in the 1/2 way point brings a flavor and body shift, coming down a tick to a solid medium, the pepper is almost completely gone just lingering at the end of the finish. On the draw a big smooth cream joins the earth, which lasts until the next draw. Burn is good, not perfect but not a problem. The draw is perfect, smoke production is thick and rich and the ash holds for 1/2 the cigar. Ending at 1:25 the last bit turned to a sweet nuttiness but started to draw harder. Thank you to the anonymous viewer that sent this one in to review!
