Hoyo de Monterrey Epicure Especial

Received 15 September 2009. Smoked Thursday 19 November 2009.

Nice construction. Very even burn. Draw slightly tighter than my preference. Nothing particularly ‘especial’ about this though! Similar to the several Hoyo Epicure No. 2 I’ve had in the past. I don’t know whether they are just not to my taste or whether they need more humidor time. I still have a few left so will try and leave them alone for a few more months. I do like the size but I’m really not encouraged to purchase any more going my experiences so far.

That said, my first few Hoyo Petit Robustos were uninspiring experiences, but then one day, I had one that explained it all. Perhaps Hoyos just need more humi time to settle?
