Cuban Montecristo Petit No. 2 Coming Soon

Posted: October 22, 2013

If you like Cuba's Montecristo No. 2 but are short on time, the new Montecristo Petit No. 2 might be the answer.

Global distributor Habanos S.A. announced that the cigar will be reaching retailers very soon.

Like the iconic Montecristo No. 2, the Petit No. 2 has a fat 52 ring gauge, but unlike the original, it's almost an inch-and-a-half shorter at 4 3/4 inches long. This way, a smoker is promised the same level of flavor offered by the classic No. 2, but without the same time commitment.

The Petit No. 2 comes in boxes of 25, 10 and three. This is the second new Montecristo released this yearthe Double Edmundo came out last month and scored 92 points in Cigar Insider.

For more on both the Montecristo Petit No. 2 and Double Edmundo, read David Savona's blog Montecristo, Big and Small, and Other New Cubans.

Just bought a box of ten from November 2013, I am looking forward to try one.

This cigar has an excellent flavor profile with a fair body and strength level and all the involvedness a cigar should have.
