Hoyo de Monterrey 150 Edition Cigar Review – This soft box pressed 6×54 stick features a dark chocolate mottled wrapper with minimal veins, tight seams, large sloppy double cap, dense pack, oily satin feel and pungent pepper and barnyard aroma. First light reveals a snug draw with minimal medium bodied smoke output showing flavors of a smooth cocoa and soft earth followed by a good bit of pepper buildup on a short finish. The first third quickly opens the draw to a normal resistance holding the same profile just extending the finish to the next draw. 35 minutes in nearing the 1/2 way point, flavors change very little adding a touch of coffee to the draw. Ending at 1:10 the last third went to a deeper smooth plain earth and hint of nutmeg while the finish dropped the pepper continuing the same earth to the next draw.

    Thanks for providing the review. I thought I’d be the first to comment on a couple of points you made:

    1.) Opinions – agreed…although I did begin my habit after reading that bands are showing off…so I used to remove them. The I realized that most of the people I smoke with were only occasional smokers, and so no matter what, it didn’t matter. Then I eventually just took them off so I wouldn’t have to do it later. I’ve never come across the glue scenario, but you practical advice makes sense.

    2.) $ Monterrys…I’ve never paid more than $5 for a Hoyo de Monterrey, so I’m curious what part of the country you live in and is it typically for cigars to be priced high? I’m in Dallas.

    Great site. Thanks for posting.
