TASTES LIKE: A Cuban cigar should…
Notes: The Cuban Monte #2 is arguably the best all-around cigar in the Universe. It is the BMW 3-series of the cigar world; checking all of the boxes nicely and capably. We have two vintage smokes to compare, one from a 2003 box and the other from a 2005 box. With 15 years of aging, the 2003 smoke has mellowed to Cuban perfection, just the right amount of spice & sweet. 10,500 Points (100 point scale). Which means it is already better than every other cigar you probably have smoked. It’s 13 year old cousin has a slightly darker wrapper and is a bit more spicy than the 2003, offering a nice contrast to the older stogie -easily worth 8,096 points (out of 100), making it better than any cigar you have smoked, unless you are me, and have smoked the higher scoring 2003 smoke as well.
