Altadis assigned their most skilled and accomplished cigar makers, whom they call their "Grupo de Maestros" or Master Group, to create the Montecristo Epic. This goes to show the level of attention detail that goes into the process of making this cigar, with each stick being meticulously inspected and every box including a Certificate of Authenticity signed by the artisans at every step. The Montecristo Epic No. 2 is a limited edition torpedo that comes in a red and white box instead of the regular yellow and red packaging of the rest of the Montecristo Epic line. The blend is a bit different with tobaccos from a 2007 Vintage crop: a select Ecuadorian Habano wrapper, Nicaraguan binder and a selection of vintage Nicaraguan and Dominican fillers.
