Flavour: Medium to Full Length: 4 3/8" (110mm) Ring Gauge: 38 Packaging: Single cigar Factory name: Trabuco
A small cigar perfect for lighting up when time is short. This size is produced for only one other Habanos, Hoyo de Monterrey, where it is called Le Hoyo du Depute. Enjoy its delicate flavour for around twenty minutes.
I don't have much to compare this to, but it was a very enjoyable smoke; lasting around 40-50 minutes. Fairly mild smooth smoke, not sure I could pick up much in the way of distinct flavours, except maybe some almonds (marzipan) about 2/3's in but that faded quite quickly and was replaced with straight tobacco taste.

Just finished smoking this cigar which was a very fine smoke all the way until the end when it got a bit hot. Nevertheless, I'll be buying this one again.

I have just finished my first box of these cigars and ordered a replacement box of 20 from this website.
Although there are various negative reviews of these cigars I have found them to be very enjoyable, and easily shared amongst my friends.
A smooth, rich and complex set of tastes from beginning to end, I find these open juniors a very pleasant smoke, particularly after a meal.

The general consensus of this range has been negative but smoked my with an open mind. Not a patch on the other cigars in the Montecristo range. Found the flavours a little bland and uninspiring. Having said that it was enjoyable and smoked very well. If your new to cigars then this would be a very pleasing introduction to this brand, which I feel was the factories initial intention! As far as this goes the brief has been more than such sucessfully fulfuilled! Not my favourite smoke by any strech but would happily smoke one again if given one for example, so cannot be that bad. I think people are disappointed as Montecristo have set themselves such high standards to live up to but dont be put of, this is still a good smoke, though maybe not for the pureist or people who enjoy a fuller, richer flavour (such as myself).

Only had this in my humidor for a week so was pretty fresh. Was a bit harsh after lighting but totally mellowed down very quickly. First half smoked very well, slow burning and very even, very peppery and spicey with a hint of leather taste. Kept pretty cool down to the last third, produced an enjoyable ammount of smoke. Reminded me a bit like a montecristo no.5 but stronger! All in all an enjoyable smoke but definatly not one for the morning.
