Stephen Griffiths' Reviews
|Date of Review||Rating|
|A true Cuban classic, everyone should at least have one or more Montecristo No. 2's in their humidor. But what about recent production? Does the vitola have plenty to offer for novice and experienced smokers? Montecristo No. 2||
1.5 out of 5
The No. 2 as of 2013, is the only Diplomaticos currently under regular production. Habanos SA have been slowly discontinuing the Diplomaticos year over and No. 5 in 2010.
Keeping with the Diplomaticos brand, generally the No. 2 wrapper has a rustic, somewhat veiny look to it.
