I was given one by my cousin who couldn’t stop raving about how amazing they were. He even compared it on the same level as a Partagas D4, which is one of my favourites.
Post dinner we left the wives to watch X-Factor as we snuck out and lit up.
Kicking off, it was mild to begin with and as the cigar started warming up the flavour erupted and I was getting hints of Coffee, cream and vanilla.
The burn was perfect the whole way down and the draw was fantastic throughout. I also found the smoke that came off was very light and almost aromatic in flavour.
Down to about half way I started getting floral aromas coming through, which is well known from the Hoyo De Monterrey Double Corona.
Overall I found this a nice light smoke, non-intrusive and full of a mild creamy flavour. A perfect smoke for about an hour.
One way I also judge a cigar is that at the end, if I’m burning my finger as I’m inhaling, then I know I like the cigar.
It’s definitely a cigar that I will be investing in for the humidor, especially as they come in such a nice dress box.
