By Thomas M. on 10 June 2008 (Hoyo de Monterrey Le Hoyo Du Depute) :
These cigars came to me by mistake, as I generally do not like any ring size less than 42. My intention was to return them - but I broke down and had one, and "viola" now I DO smoke a ring size less than 38. When time is short and you want something more than a cigarillo, this fits the bill. Well constructed and pleasant aroma and taste, so long as you don't expect the complexity of a robusto! Would order again!!
For those who like the Grandes de Espana or the Lanceros by Cohiba, this Hoyo de Monterrey has the same gauge, but is almost half in length. It is the ideal Habano when time is short. Due to its special format it is somewhat spongier, meaning easier draw and combustion.
