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.
