The 25 Best Cigars of the Year 2008

Juan Lopez Selección No. 2

11

Lovers of the renowned Hoyo de Monterrey Epicure No. 2 are typically also enamored with this robusto because it delivers many of the same aromatic qualities, but with a little more richness. Originally only available in Switzerland, this tough-to-find cigar is made mostly at the Partagas factory. It is this vitola and the Selección No. 1 that are produced in the greatest number. We love the oily and dark brown wrappers. The cigars draw and burn beautifully with a medium to full body, reminiscent of a Bordeaux wine with savory leather and tea notes. Selección No. 2 comes packaged in cedar cabinets of 25 sticks. From our experience, this cigar always improves with box age. This is a smoke for true connoisseurs who prefer subtlety and finesse over strength and flamboyance.
