Hoyo de Monterrey Epicure Especial - The Epicure Especial is the latest addition by Habanos S.A. to Hoyo de Monterrey's best loved series: the Epicure No. 1 and No. 2. Measuring 5/12" length and 50 ring gauge (factory name Gordito) this vitola was first seen as a maduro wrapped Limited Edition release in 2004.
Hmm, what to say, well, very good. Quite floral at first before finding a shallow but satisfying mix of Cedar and leather. Burn was a bit erratic but I think this was down to quite loose packing, maybe a Friday afternoon effort. A nice cigar, didn't make me go wow but not a lot to criticise about it. I got the occasional hint of something special but just not enough of it. Very enjoyable, perhaps another example may get me a bit more effusive. Who knows, that's the joy of cigars.

This cigar was recommended to me yesterday for my "birthday smoke", and I must admit it was wonderful.
I have not smoked many cuban's and the ones I have were too strong for me but the Epicure Especial is "just right".
No problem with the lighting up, smooth easy draw with even burn and a very pleasant taste.
All in all, this is a mild cigar but mild in a cuban is like medium in other cigars I have tried and for me this was perfect.

Will be buying again, im new to cigar smoking so thought this may be a good starting point. They are well constructed and low maintaince when lit. The ash holds for 2inches+. The flavours start out mild and creamywith a hint of sweetness. Then develops into a more complex smoke full of light leathery notes and sweet cedar. The final third improves on this and a sweet salty caramel flavour coats the inside of your mouth. I smoked it right down to the last inch and was very reluctant to stubb it when it started burning my lips

Constuction looks superb, and has a nice and easy draw.
It is mild and creamy, with plentiful of smoke. That lasts about an 1 half hours or so.
Absolutely great cigar!

These are a great cigar; not too strong and not too mild a truly great cigar. These are a regular in my cigar jar; half of my cigar jar is filled with the Epicure Especial. The Epicure is a very smooth cigar; at no point did I experience any bitterness or harshness. A great smoke anytime, anywhere in the summer or winter.
