Juan Lopez is a 150-year-old brand with a prestigious history, but it doesn’t have the fame of others in Cuba. The Juan Lopez Seleccion No 2 is the brand’s premium cigar and it’s one of the world’s ultimate Robustos. Here is an exceptionalyl crafted, handmade cigar that deserves your attention.

Juan Lopez Seleccion No 2 Overview

Many connoisseurs claim that the No 2 is by far the best Robusto coming out of Cuba. It has a short smoking time, a medium-strength, and boasts complex flavors. All in all, the Juan Lopez Seleccion No 2 is a remarkable smoking experience, especially if you have the patience to age the sticks for 10 - 15 years first. Woody cedar scents and coffee flavors back sweet and citrus notes as the smoke lingers beautifully on and on.

Smoking a Juan Lopez Seleccion No 2

At 124 mm / 4.9 inches length and with a ring gauge of 50, the No 2 has a Corojo wrapper with minimal veins on the wrapper. It is spongy along its whole length with an expertly applied cap.

The cold draw reveals musky cedar flavors that leave a tang of salt on the lips. The first draws produce abundant white smoke and a long nutty retrohale, and the initial third features hot peppers that change into more mellow flavors of moss and grass. 

The second third features a sweeter profile with pineapple elements breaking through, which rolls out to the final third, predominated with earth and nuts flavors.

Cigar Value

Coming from a lesser known cigar brand, The Juan Lopez Seleccion No 2 is often overlooked. This is its strength. Spark one up around connoisseurs and you’ll soon make an impression. There are fewer better Robustos to be smoked, ever. 

Flavor complexity makes it one of the most engaging sticks on the market. Most cigar experts will advise to let this stick age 10 to 15 years in a humidor, to truly bring out its authentic flavors. As such it is a very wise investment for savvy collectors.

Juan Lopez Seleccion No 2 Experience

With medium strength and dark, deep flavors of Cuban coffee, cedar, and pineapple, the Juan Lopez Seleccion No 2 is not a cigar that you forget quickly. Although criminally underrated, it is widely rated among the top five Robusto cigars found anywhere.
