Juan Lopez Seleccion No. 2
RM63.00 – RM69.00
The Juan Lopez Seleccion No. 2 is one of Cuba’s great “under-the-radar” cigars, its rustic appearance concealing a wealth of complexity. According to Cigar Aficionado magazine, it’s one of the best robustos currently being produced in Cuba. If you enjoy rich notes of honey, coffee and nutmeg and a memorable evolution of flavours and aromas, this cigar comes highly recommended.

The Juan Lopez Seleccion No. 2 is not a handsome cigar, but its veiny, lumpy, caramel-coloured wrapper conceals a remarkable array of flavours. The smoke is smooth and creamy with a caramel sweetness and just a touch of saltiness. Expect notes of espresso, roasted nuts, barbecued meat, nutmeg, raisins, plums, citrus, sweet cedar, earth and baking spices, all delivered with subtlety and panache.
Please Note: We are probably the only cigar seller in the world who points this out, but badly constructed Cuban Cigars are more common than you might think. Buy at your own risk.
