Hoyo de Monterrey Petit Robusto

Overview: Hoyo de Monterrey Petit Robusto

The Hoyo de Monterrey Petit Robusto Cigar is a Petit Robusto – measuring at 102mm by a 50 ring gauge. Hoyo de Monterrey was the first brand to introduce a Petit Robusto in 2005. 

A light bodied smoke full of deep rustic but elegant flavors, we found wood, salt and walnut to be at the top. The smoke output was impressive, thick and creamy, its smooth transitions guided us through this smoke. Additional flavours of cream, cinnamon and vanilla come through in the second half with dashes of pepper closer to the finish. 

The Petit Robusto would pair excellently with a light bodied beer or a Pinot Noir after a hearty meal. You can expect to enjoy this cigar for around 45 minutes, and they are likely to leave you wanting more. 

Like many of its HDM siblings, this cigar is a nice smoke right out of the box, but additional agin is recommended to this Petit Robusto to reach its full potential.

    I had one of these babies given to me several months ago before I found Cuban Lou’s. I just now had another. I burned my fingers both times. And the verdict is? Just ordered two boxes. Taste great, less expensive. Pull your credit card out of your wallet & order now. I did.

    I usually like to relax with a torpedo, but when time is short this is the cigar for me. I am most impressed by the great flavor for such a short smoke. This cigar will definetely give you your money’s worth.

    An excellent Cigar to “pick up” and “put down”. full bodied and expressive and the smoke progresses. Good value for the quality.

    Well constructed with a good draw. Very consistant. Starts with a nice ceder tone and developes into a earthy spice. Overall great smoke for the price.

    This magnificent little treasure is packed with flavor. The ring guage is perfect. If you are like me and on the run all the time this is the cigar for you. It has a larger ring guage but the length of the cigar is such that it will not take you more than 35-40 minutes to enjoy from lighting up to that last perfect draw. It has a great flavor too. You can’t lose by buying a box of these goodies.

    After reading reviews in major publications in my search for an acceptable smaller, faster smoking stick than my favorite robustos (Bolivar Royal Corona being one) I settled on trying the Hoyo. I made the mistake of smoking one immediately upon receipt – with this stick do as they say, let it rest for a few days after transit as it smoked with a dirty, gritty taste. After about 4-5 days rest in my humidor I ventured out on a Saturday morning with a cup of strong black coffee and my Hoyo. Lighting it with a ST Dupont and a strip of cedar I discovered that those 4-5 days totally changed the experience, for a smaller faster smoke it is full of great leather and chocolate flavors and is now my daily smoke before work. Don’t fail to give this cigar a try – it just might replace your bigger sticks more often than you think.

    This short, stout robusto looks phenomenal. It had perfect construction, a spongy feel, was oily, and had amazing pre light aroma. It smoked like a dream. It imparted an amazingly rich array of flavors. Steady earthiness throughout, with cocoa dusting, hazelnuts, leather, and chocolate. The spice on it balanced the smoke just enough. Medium to med-full bodied

    Once you get this box and open it for the first time,,,,, the smell is extraordinary!!!!!
    I like this particular size as its does seem to taste better than the larger versions.
    A great smoke when I’m out with the guys or at a nice bar…
    Honestly even out reading the morning paper & a coffee,,, makes me wish it was morning while writing this 🙂
    Great Smoke!!!!!

    When this smoke first came out, I liked the size 4×50 it made sense. I smoked a few but at that time I was a cigarette smoker as well. I was not satisfied. However there was definitely something there. It did something different from most cigars it built and progressed as you smoked it. I am now only a cigar smoker. This is the best cigar avavailable from HOYO. I think to myself maybe it should last longer but no it is what it is! Starts mild and builds with intensity. In the beginning you are not quite satisfied but it tastes great. At the end you want more. The finish is miles better than an epicure no.2. For me close to a perfect smoke.

    Cigars smoke awesome! Got them in 10 days and decided to light one up upon arrival. After the mini first 3rd, it was a near perfect draw and great flavor. Going to let the rest in the chamber for a while to see how the flavors develop after sitting for a minute. Highly recommend for a quick 30-45 minute smoke. Great flavor for minimal costs.
