Hoyo de Monterrey Epicure No. 2 Cigar Review
This 4.8×50 stick hails from Cuba, offering a dark brown satin wrapper with minimal veins, tight seams, a firm even construction and soft tobacco aroma. First light reveals a very oily grassy, hay flavor with a touch of woody bitterness. Smoke output is great along with the draw putting off thick rich smoke. The first third gives very smoothy creamy medium-full boded flavors of wood and nuts with tons of thick smoke output. Burn isn’t perfect but doesn’t need a touchup yet. The burn continues to be a bit wonky, but not needing a touchup. By the 1/2 way point 30 minutes in there were no flavors changes, only a good bit of strength buzz hitting me. Ending at 45 minutes the last third showed no changes. Thank you very much to our viewer Hagai all the way from Israel, I really appreciate you sending this in!
