Tasting Notes

It lacks the strength of the Cohibas, but it is superior to the Upmanns. Mild flavours at first, blended nicely into a complex finish. Excellent smoke!

Purchased one of these on some guidance they would be a smooth smoke - After review it was overall a pleasant cigar. However, I felt the smoke was a little pokey and the spice of the cedar a little strong to be classes as smooth. 4* as enjoyable but stronger than they look!

I've had a couple of these recently and they're let down in terms of consistency. The first was very rich and tightly rolled but happily still smoke-able. The second was far paler and a little too loose for my preference. Neither were terrible but I don't feel that I could recommend them to friends. As such I can't really get excited about them which is a shame as outside of a belicosa the robusto is by far my favourite vitola.

Having heard good things about the Hoyo De Monterrey Epicure No 2, I decided it was time to give it a go. The first thing to note about this cigar is its appearance on the eye. From the rich warm colour of the wrapper, to the bold double band printed in red, gold and white, this cigar seemingly oozes real quality. The feel of the cigar is compact without being too rigid, which should hopefully allow for a good draw. Finished with a tidy double cap, simply holding this cigar makes me feel more elegant. Upon lighting, the first few draws bring with it a smooth creamy taste, with hints of wood and chocolate. As I progress, the burn is excellent, with delicate white spots visible in the ash. The draw is good also. Into the second third of the cigar, the smoothness remains, however a hint of cinnamon begins to emerge, along with further intensified flavours of chocolate and wood. The burn remains excellent at about thirty minutes into this medium bodied cigar. Flavours remain similar into the final third of the cigar, with a smooth creamy taste, complimented by subtle hints of tobacco and even leather. The burn throughout is fantastic, although removing the bands in one piece proved difficult, something that will prove annoying to anyone like myself who likes to collect these. In summary, I was certainly impressed by this cigar and consider it a valuable asset to my humidor. Flavours remain consistent throughout; however strength can vary slightly, which is not necessarily a bad thing. For me, this would remain as a cigar for better occasions, in the company of friends and family, as opposed to an evening smoke by myself. If you are looking for a good Cuban cigar which is reasonably priced, yet quality in terms of appearance and taste, then this cigar is well worth your time.

A very mild, easy smoke from start to finish. Slight taste of coffee in the second third, last third add a bit of pepper into the mix. Paired nicely with a few measures of Jura.

For Simon, I think you will find this Robusto cigar may fit your requirements, 50RG suburb looking with the double banding, a good draw and medium strength with notes of fruit and spice through out, I would also recommend the Romeo y Julieta Wide Churchill 55RG a very decadent looking cigar with a suburb draw again medium strength with notes of caramel, fruit and spice both are truly outstanding cigars.
