An RE Friday with @Nate Chu C&C for a Saturday morning with this Sir Winston from 03. Today is going to be great if this cigar is anything to judge it by. What a super smooth star

C&C ‘14 especiales. Fantastic start to the day C&C with a Monte 4 C&C time today with a Perla picked up from 24:24

From last night. Not Pictured: BRE Connie 1.. Great flavors.  Original Release Picadores: ULE NOV-14..  Flawless  RAT NOV-19 Dip 2. From 24:24 Not as salty as the dark wrappers.

2017 Dip 2. Had a monte 2 yesterday so the battle of the 2s continues. For me, I think the diplomaticos has the upper hand. There’s a nice twangy breadiness that I get out of these which is slightly sweet - I think that description of partagas sweet bell pepper does it justice. Good cigar, 4.15/5

I'm the opposite.
I prefer the monte no.2, but the Diplo no.2 is also an excellent Cigar and I have smoked quite a few and very much enjoyed them every time.

Just more of a fan of the monte flavor profile

Part of what makes this hobby so great - the variety of tastes and flavor preferences. To be fair, I’ve only smoked my way through one box of monte 2s, of which quite a few were duds. I am a big fan of the monte profile, though at this point I’ve preferred the Edmundos. Might need to grab another box of the monte 2s to try out. Cheers

Sucks you had a bunch of duds.
I haven't had any problems with 2019 to present production ones at all.

Happen to recall what year yours were?

2019 I believe. Seems like several were under filled and the box was going through a “sick period” for a while. A handful of the ones I had near the end were solid, and I’m pretty sure the box just probably needed some more down time to sort itself out. Will add a box of monte 2s to my purchase list and will give them another shake

Agreed, the Edmundos are terrific and similar in taste... seem more consistent... but, that said, a recent no2 from 2020 I had was better. Sharper flavours and deeper cream and chocolate. Best no2 I've had in years. One of the best Montes I've had period. It may be a good time to stock up.

I'm with you on this one.  The last monte 2 I had was meh, while the dips have yet to fail me.
