Nice draw and construction- even burn. Mediocre aroma and
one dimesional throughtout. Needs age.
I have had several of these and have been very impreased with the ones I smoke. The burn has been dean on straight and the flavor of cream and vanilla shines through with these. You also get a hint of leather that makes up one fine Hoyo. They seem to smoke great even fresh.
I generallly have an aversion to summer box codes. In this case, don't hold back. These are outSTANDing. The writer below refers to hoyo DC's and as I smoked this cigar, I thought "If I were to compare this to a hoyo DC, it would have to be a '98". That should tell you everything. The finish is amazing -- longest finish I have tasted in a hoyo for almost ten years. And it's an amazingly complex finish as well. I'm glad I followed Kevin's advice on this because I had a 10-box of hoyo epi especiales from somewhere else that were garbage. These cigars are nothing like that box at all. Man are these goood.
This is a very young cigar having just been introduced this year as a regular item. Their youth should not hinder trying one, or more, and the experience will be rewarding. Think of cramming the flavor of a Hoyo DC into a smaller package and you will have a good starting point. Almost everything about this cigar is perfect: smooth medium body with complex flavors of cedar, fruit, vanilla and leather. Great draw. How lucky you will be to age a box or two over the long haul. The rewards are yet to be seen. My new go-to cigar for afternoon, evening, even after dinner. Smoked my first one a day after smoking a Cohiba Siglo VI and was still impressed.
