When this smoke first came out, I liked the size 4x50 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.
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 :-)
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
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 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.
Mild and earthy beginning. Evolves progressively without being aggressive. A very pleasant cigar. Reminds us with the glory days of Cuba. The finish is outstanding.
