The Epicure Especial is widely considered the crème de la crème of the Hoyo de Monterrey line, and I would tend to concur. This is one of my favorite Cubans, at this size, for the price. It is a medium bodied cigar that falls right into my personal preferences. I paired this cigar with a light red wine in the first third. Two 'Illy' double espressos in the second (no I ain't gonna sleep tonight), and alternated between a bit of whiskey and filtered water on the last (in hindsight water alone would have been just fine).

We would like to express our gratitude to Richard Cordero who took amazing photographs for this review. Thank you!

Habanos Edicion Limitada 2007. To read the advertising on this cigar one would think it would provide something of a religious experience. Where it was an amazing experience, it took some work to get there. There are still, unfortunately, some hit and miss issues from the Island South of Miami.

This cigar has a classic Cuban appearance and comes in a traditional presentation. Unbanded in a cedar cabinet of 25 cigars, the wrapper is light brown and silky looking with a few puckered veins running across its surface. It has a triple cap and once I clipped it I could see an expertly done bunching of the tobacco that mirrored what I saw in the foot. I was concerned that the draw might be a little tight and I was right but it was still manageable. I have found many of the Cuban cigars I have smoked to be excellent smokes, but only after they have been aged properly do they begin to truly shine. With eight and a half years under its belt this cigar demonstrated why many cigar lovers consider Cuban cigars to be the best in the world.

This Hoyo de Monterrey belongs to the Seleccion Piramides Series, a limited edition of 5 Cuban piramides released in 2003.

This is the very first cigar that I smoked out of that little beautiful box and I enjoyed the experience. Although the Cohiba and the Montecristo were superior (reviews coming up), this Hoyo is undoubtedly an excellent smoke.

One of the best in the format. The Hoyo de Monterrey Double Corona is truly a man's cigar. To this day I have yet to try any of the Hoyo de Monterrey brand that I do not like. This one is no exception. Big, bold, and brassy!

Ah, the Hoyo De Monterrey, truly a classic since the mid 70's. I can appreciate this smoke, obvously well crafted judging by the look, though the feel is a bit misleading. If you pick up one of these to try, I would advise not paying too much attention to the feel at all.

This "divine" cigar is supposed to be the most delicious from all the Hoyos. I cannot confirm this statement (yet!), but the Hoyo de Monterrey le Hoyo des Dieux is certainly a good stick if you like light woody flavours.
