Review #19: Review #18 is spot-on, these are great, refined, creamy smokes with a mouth-watering sweetness. It will be very worthwile to check if the new production ones can ever live up to the original! - Submitted by Hercule Poirot on May 29, 2008


Review #18: Had my 2nd one from 5 i purchased in November 2007. The wrapper looked nothing like in the picture above (the HDM band was the newer design with the white, red, bright gold - so i assume these were from a later run). The wrapper was very dark (almost black) and had 'dulled' with age , smooth (not toothy), almost velvety and very spongy. Wow, i have never seen a cigar as beautifully crafted as this. The burn was even and cool. The draw was open with a copius mouthful of sweet, mellow smoke and the last third gave the same sweetness you get from the start but delicately layered with a spiced background. Not overpowering and very very smooth. I smoked it after dinner, but without a drink, just a glass of water at hand. These are very light cigars and i believe to truly enjoy it, you should not pair it with anything that may take away from its flavours. It is one of the most refined and delicate cigars i have smoked! They are almost impossible to find, but i have been told that they are being brought back into regular production in 2008! Stock up and keep them to mature over a couple of years, you wont regret it! - Submitted by Gobind on February 22, 2008


Review #17: I have to say that I've tried all the LE from 2003 until now, and that this is the one that really make me crazy. A cigar that make you dream with open eyes. Great. - Submitted by spawn on April 26, 2007


Review #16: Simply the King of all Cubans! I spent this summer sampling all available brands of similar vitola and the winner was clearly this one, as close to perfection as a cigar could be. Especially the last third develops an aroma never found in any other cigar I ever smoked. Out of world! Bought a box in August and, sadly only 6pcs remain. Will try and keep them for special occasions. - Submitted by redplotas on January 12, 2007


Review #15: When my slb of these Hoyo EL's first arrived I was slightly disappointed with the unbalanced flavors. After two years of age they are starting to round into great cigars and with a couple of more years they are destined for greatness. Unlike the Hoyo EL Piramides these Gorditos required time to develop their creaminess and sweetness. But then again not too many Habanos have measured up to the Hoyo Piramides. - Submitted by Michael Moore on January 3, 2007
