"Decent but not worth the price"
This cigar was okay but the Premium was not worth it. Started unraveling as I smoked it and tasted pretty much the same as normal Montecristo Epic. Would smoke it again if it were max maybe $13. I can t say it is better than that. Purchased mine from a verified vendor with certification from Montecristo that they were real. I get they are limited edition but even so I have smoked less expensive Montecristo cigars and enjoyed them more. The Epic 2007 is cheaper and tastes almost identical qithout the rolling issues. Save your money and try that or the white and platinum series if you want a decent Montecristo. Personally I will be sticking with my Rocky Patel s, Ashton s, Arturo fuente s, and Don Diego s. I have yet to have had a bad cigar from any of them. Not saying this cigar is bad it definitely isn t but considering I paid $29.99 for one cigar I have to say I can t see any value for this unless I was getting at least two for that price. Plenty of other $20 cigars that are actually worth the money on the market and this just isn t one of them.

"A Fine Cigar"
I am not an everyday or regular cigar smoker. I would say I have one once in a while; could be a couple of months or a couple years. Been partaking since 2000. This Montecristo Epic No. 2 is a darn good cigar! Great aroma out of the humidor, where I had it season for a couple weeks after I received them. Lights well, and first draw had full body and excellent taste. My senses aren t tuned enough to pick out comparative scents, but I ll try. The Dominican and Nicaraguan fillers have a smooth yet full flavor. Did not detect or sense any harshness. The Ecuadoran wrapper rounds it out; ash tip was nicely even, and the draw maintained well almost all the way down. Another great smoke from the Montecristo line!
