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 #213: 2nd robusto from a 3 pack of tubos.  1st one was markedly tight to draw.  This one is also tight to draw and drilled into the top 3 times and pulled out a couple long chunks of tobacco where now the draw is ok. Initial Light has distinct sweet manure, earth flavors with a nice light dose of spices.  Draw is still a bit tight even after using the Perfect Draw tool 3 times before lighting, but not to an unpleasant point.  Aroma is very nice, bold and sweet flavors, this is the blue collar brother to the Cohiba Robusto packing a hardy punch of flavors. Smoke output is good with thicker white smoke.  Cigar is performing great, even burn, great robust flavors, probably as bold as I'd like from a Cuban.   Mid-third mellows out a little bit surprisingly, but not much of a transition in flavors.  Very nice smoke output as the ash fell off at 1.5 inches.  Cigar begins to pick up some of that young Cuban cigar flavor, tanic, acidic which comes and goes.  I imagine this would mellow out favorably with a few years of aging.   Overall rating 8 out of 10. - Submitted by smitte3 on March 12, 2020


Review #212: MAR 14 All I'll say is that these 2014's have been well worth waiting for, they're getting better all the time. A supremely relaxing 90 minutes or so spent here with everything you're looking for from a fine Havana cigar. - Submitted by Vortigan on February 21, 2020


Review #211: Age unknown, but probably quite young. 6 weeks rest in humidor. Fantastic first half. Very easy draw, lovely taste. Cinnamon, various citrus notes among others. Very elegant and light. Great aroma and smoke. Burn bit wonky but nothing disastrous. Then it slowly transitions into something I've experienced with all my Hoyos. They get mushy and combustion gets problematic. Hard to keep going and impossible to not smoke hot. Balance and appeal partially replaced by a shrill taste. After a while even relighting can be troublesome, and somewhere in the final third it's essentially over depending on how stubborn you are. - Submitted by Quale on July 22, 2019


Review #210: NOV 18 Initial flavors of subtle cedar with similar flavors to a classic Ashton. Very tasty very mild welcoming flavor which I like. Draw issues from the start a little bit tight for 50 ring gauge. I really like the white and red band label. Draw opens up after the first inch but still a little suppressed. Nice even burn. Flavors strengthen a bit. Flavors of cedar wood, hay, a tiny bit of pepper and vanilla. Light smoke is building a little more substance, solid construction and pretty light brown wrapper. Smoke is building as it burns down with pleasant cedar, pepper, and light vanilla/leather flavors come out. I like it besides the inconsistent draw issues. Nothing robust or bold/overwhelming here just a pleasant light/medium bodied smoke which I like. 2nd half of the cigar picks up in strength and smoke gets thicker and spicier. Still solid cedar and vanilla flavors. Burn issues towards the end that needed a couple relights. 7/10 due to draw issues which took away from overall experience, may try the epicure #1 next for a 2nd chance. - Submitted by smitte3 on June 2, 2019


Review #209: MAR 14 What a difference a year makes! I don't know if it was just this individual sample or if these cigars in general have taken the huge leap forward that they seemed to on today's evidence. Who knows, perhaps it was a change in me of some kind, we rarely consider that. All that said, what a joy it was to smoke this cigar today. Such a delicately floral aroma in the room and an absolute kaleidoscope of flavours incorporated in two or three wonderful transitions. Started out very light with flavours of sweet cream, vanilla and sweet spice, very delicately nuanced smoke. We moved into a medium bodied smoke that was much more viscous in the second third that brought very distinct flavours of digestive biscuit, cereals and a sweet cedar still underpinned with a soft vanilla. Moving towards the close it became a full/medium bodied smoke, very chewy and dense. Toasted tobacco on the draw, a much heavier woody flavour and a bitter, dark chocolate replacing the vanilla in the background. This was a 94/95 in my book! I hope the rest this box continues on in this apparent upward trajectory. - Submitted by Vortigan on May 6, 2019
