Montecristo No.2 Gran Reserva 2005

The festive day is almost hear, and while we rush around to get our Christmas shopping done today we find out that its not just Santa that’s making an appearance this year.

Habanos have decided to release the new Montecristo No.2 Gran Reserva 2005.

An exclusive product the company has only churned out 5,000 numbered boxes of 15 units apiece.
The first Gran Reserva de Montecristo has seen the light of day with one of the most emblematic vitolas this brand –founded in 1935 and by far one of the most sought-after cigars in Habanos S.A.’s vast profolio- has ever had.

Excited? I know I am….

These bad boys been rolled with leaves that have endured a special aging process of at least five years.

All the leaves making up this unique Habano filler, binder and wrapper- were aged under the watchful and painstaking eye of Cuban planters. (not a bad job to have)

The control of the aging process were whipped into shape by the hands of seasoned Montecristo cigar rollers from the H. Upmann factory and is meant to please the most demanding smokers on the face of the earth.

We shall be a judge of that!

The Gran Reserva de Montecristohas a reduced output of barely 5,000 numbered boxes of 15 units a piece.

Here’s the specs:
Brand: Montecristo
Store Vitola: Montecristo No 2 Gran Reserva Cosecha 2005
Factory Vitola: Pirámides
Sizes: ring gauge 52 (20,64mm) x 156mm long
Presentation: 5,000 exclusive numbered boxes containing 15 units each

Not sure if we are going to get our hands on one of these this year but being a massive fan of Montecristo No.2, hopefully we can track one down in the New Year and will review them for you.
