Tasting Notes

A fairly new addition to the Hoyo range. It was added to the brand in 2004 and was probably one of the best new cigars produced in that year. Full of flavour, spice, rich and sweet. The cigar lasts around 40 minutes and have a great flavour and complexity. Definately a cigar to be smoked with at least 6 months age.

Great little cigar! A little pricy but it is a cuban. Lasted about 40 mins which i was surprised about. The burn was a little uneven and the ash was quite flakey. That said, nice and smooth with light woody notes throughout. Nothing to write home about in complexity but a great smoke for beginners and someone liking a lighter taste, no pepper or bitterness. Very good drew and smoke output. Great for weddings where you dont want to be nursing a 2 hour double toro haha!

I guess you would say that I am a seasonal cigar smoker, that is to say, that I don’t smoke every day and ususally only outside in the summer. So after my winter cigar hibernation,(from which I emerge maybe once on New Year’s Eve for a rather chilly herf huddled around the patio heater), I like to start off the season by aclimatising my pallate with a milder cigar, usually an HdM Epicure No.2. My enjoyment of cigars is usually curtailed by the weather conditions and my ability to sit still and enjoy a cigar without the cold making it a more rushed experience than I would like. After an unusually stunning summer here in the UK and some wonderfully relaxing herfing while in France, the last few weeks of wet and dreary weather had left me hankering for a cigar. Today’s conditions were as perfect as we are likely to get for some time, so suitably attired, I headed out to the garden with an relatively mild espresso, a tot of Havana Club Especial and a petit robusto. As with most HdM cigars, the construction is very good, with lovely matte oily wrapper starting to develop after a little over a year in the humidor and near perfect assembly around the cap area. After punching it with a wide punch, I tested the draw, which seemed to offer just the right amount of resistance. Pre lighting aromas were of hay, cedar and sweet spices and were quite pronounced. Slowly toasting the foot with a triple flame, got it lit easily and the first draw was a delight. Lots of lovely creamy smoke with a sweetness that tingled on the tongue. Nuts, hay, coffee and spice seem to be the order of the day, in a package that is to my mind slightly stronger in body than an Epicure No.2, developing a little about halfway through, to be a little earthier. A very enjoyable smoke and one which I found hard to tear myself away from, even though I had begun to burn my fingers on the remains. As far as I am concerned, every cigar should be an experience and I am hard pushed to find a reason I have not tried this little gem before, as a very pleasant experience it was. Lasting a full 50 mins (the way I smoke ‘em) it belies it size by offering a lot in a small package. The only negative is that it canoed a bit, but I find that with many other cigars, so I can recommend this cigar highly.

Bought a bunch of these for my wedding, to be shared with cigar aficionados and new smokers. I wanted to give everyone the feel of a real gauge cigar without the epic smoke length or more complex flab out profile of a more enthusiast cigar, and these fit the bill perfectly. A real crowd pleaser! As a Cohiba smoker myself these offered an interesting alternative and Ill certainly look at buying some more for barbecues and social events in future.

Unfortunately my cigar tunnelled but I believe this to be resultant of too intense of a heat upon lighting, with the core becoming hotter than the outsides (I used a triple jet flame) But my word, the flavours were to die for. A wonderful host of rich flavours, I don't need to repeat exactly what they were as this is clear from the other reviews. The bad burn was unfortunate but I believe it to have been my fault, it will not put me off buying plenty more.

Fantastic cigar, smooth, even burn 40-50 minutes down to the nub. Didn't want to put it down. Added to the preferred list of cigars!
