Ambos Mundos No. 2 (Sumatra)

I haven't had a lot of Sumatra wrappers so this was an interesting smoke. Construction was solid but I'm not sure if I like the Sumatra wrapper. I found it to be very nutty and it's not something I enjoyed too much. There was also this weird sourness towards the end that threw the cigar off. Anyone care to opine on the Sumatra wrapper?

    Been thinking about buying a box of Ambos. Thanks for the review. Haven't had a lot of Sumatra wrappers, but off the top of my head, the ones I have had were great... Guess I need to smoke one tonight and see.

    In general, I really like sumatra wrappers, both the Indonesian variety and the Ecuadorian variety. The Ambos Mundos was not a cigar that really wowed me, it was good but offered nothing to really separate it from the pack.

    Some good sumatra wrapped cigars: Sol Cubano Sumatra, Ashton VSG, CCOM Cuban Label, La Gloria Cubana, Graycliff Crystal.

    I'm going to have to try some of those cigars you recommended because I feel like the Sumatra wrapper and I got off on the wrong foot. As for Ambos Mundos, I really like their Habano wrapper. Very tasty.

    I agree with Joe. The ambos 2 doesn't showcase Sumatra very well. I really like ecuadorian Sumatra.
