Hoyo de Monterrey Epicure No. 2 Review:

Completely hand-made with tobacco leaves coming from Vuelta Abajo, this Robusto cigar, with excellent burn, is the last product from Hoyo de Monterrey. With a smooth strength, it has an intense tobacco taste, blended with cocoa, cinnamon and dried fruits.

Review #203: ---   For me, that's enough. 1 in every 2 HdM cigars is tasteless. Unbelievable - tried around 15 from very different sizes and boxes of origin and allways the same conclusion: it is a hit or miss. The problem is that, for the prize of 2 HdM you can get one COHIBA that never fails !!! I'm over with HdM. - Submitted by Heinrich on June 3, 2017

Review #202: ---   I tried it out of the box. Disappointing first draws, then the 1st third was nice but in my opinion a little too light, with slight hints of cream. The second third was clearly better, with a real creamy flavor, but a bit too simple. The last third let me with an impression of nicotine and less flagrance, a bit acid, it made me think of genever. Not a very well balanced cigar, I really enjoyed the second third, but it maybe needs some more aging to get a more delicate flavor. A bit overrated in my opinion - Submitted by LNieblasR on March 27, 2017

Review #201: ---   Bought as a single from Havana Express in Sydney. Good looking stick. Good construction, nice tobacco smell. Lit it up and was immediately struck by the creamy coffee flavours and thought immediately that this was going to be one of my favourites. Tight draw though. Not insurmountable but need a couple of pulls to generate reasonable smoke. Coffee flavours fell off pretty quickly though. Started as mild to medium but went to medium and then on the fullish side for the final third. No progression from the first third onwards and lost the charm of that first third in the second and final thirds. Greater nicotine bite in the second half which is not my cup of tea. Maybe a bit too young. Would like to try a more aged sample though to see if those creamy coffee flavours kick through. Had a with a Sheaf Stout which was probably on the bitter side for this cigar. Will go with my Leffe Bruine standard in the future. - Submitted by Rustyman on February 11, 2017

Review #200: ---   These, as well as the brand in general, seem to have a strong following. I just don't get it. I think the no 2s are one of the most overrated cigars out there. Ok they are light but they lack any real depth and character. You can do so much better than these. But each to their own I guess... - Submitted by jumpfrog on January 25, 2017

Review #199: This is a puzzle cigar for me.Their taste varies significantly depending on how tight their draw is(even from the same box).When draw is good they are great.When on the tight side, not good for me. Good ones smoke,burn,taste and smell great and they are a better cigar than the petit robusto,with which I had similar problems and did not buy for a long time.Dear Cuban friends, you need to invest in QC,QC and QC. - Submitted by pancig on September 27, 2016
