Montecristo - Double Edmundo

Montecristo - Double Edmundo

Personal Story

Most of the Montecristo's have really wowed me, most certainly the Montecristo No.2. The Open Eagle - if my memory serves me well - was the first Montecristo I ever tried. I did not give it much thought since at that time I was simply cigars just to look cool and to hang out more often with my Dad. Fast forward a couple of years ahead and there I was standing in the enormous walk-in humidor at the La Casa Del Habano at the Beirut International Airport. Having purchased a box of Petit Coronas, i decided to opt for a box of much larger cigars.

Personal Story

I am a person that appreciates good cigars. The best way to get to know which cigar is worth trying is to look at other aficionado’s opinions. Looking at CigarAficionado’s website, I noticed that the numero uno cigar of 2013 is surprisingly the Montecristo No.2. I had the pleasure of smoking this cigar in 2012 and looking back at the taste notes corresponding to that cigar, it seems my opinions had mixed results. Since 2012, I have had the chance to try out various new brands and have become much more exposed to the art of cigar. I can confirm that my knowledge has grown deeply therefore decided to give this cigar of the year a second chance.
