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!

Appearance : ★★★★½
You cannot help but appreciate a really big cigar. This one has a very smooth oily glossy wrapper. Well done, kudos to the makers.
 
Construction : ★★★★★
The perfect burn if I have ever experienced one. Most cigars have a small run, though not enough to bother repairing, but this one did not. It was a perfect burn from light to finish. Smooth even draw to make the experience complete. Nice feel to it too, firm but spongish. Sweet.

Flavor : ★★★★☆
From the beginning, I knew I had something special. The light-up was all roasted wood and hickory. A tiny hint of sweetness to linger on your lips and palette. The second third gave me that stinging sensation that I love. Perfect with a nice coffee chaser. THe final third, I hate to admit, was a bit too strong almost, particularly towards the last hit. The first two thirds made it worth it all however.

Value : ★★★½☆
This is a very pricey cigar, but if you like a hearty beefy mans' smoke, then it is well worth it.

Overall Rating : ★★★★½
This is a good long lasting one hour cigar with a lot of life to it. Not a morning cigar, nor a cigar to be smoked without a hearty chaser (tea, coffee, Latte...), but a great cigar indeed. Lastly, if you are a beginner, I'd let this one set in the humidor awhile, letting your palette strengthen for stronger smokes before trying this one.

    Well worth it indeed! I don’t generally go for the smokes above fifteen dollars, but after trying this one, I believe I will be reevaluating my strategy. What really dold me on this one was the fact that I got an hours worth of smoke time out of it. Now that’s getting your moneys’ worth!

  2. I enjoyed this so much, I got greedy and finished it in about half an hour! It still came off so well! I’d like to put it up against an Esplendido sitting in the humidor, and see how it compares!

    “Perfect burn”, how could it not have a perfect burn you inhaled it in one hour. Then I see the review above and he sucked one up in half an hour. I smoked one today on a hour and a half walk and still could have smoked another 20 min. That stinging sensation that you love must be all the nicotine your pumping in your mouth. Slow down and you’ll have so much more time to appreciate this cigar. I love to enjoy this cigar for as long as I can.

  4. @ rick,
    yeah, slow and steady is the way to smoke. A puff a minute. I had one lasting 1:48 min. Timed just for this comment.

  5. Half an hour?? How?! You must have lungs like bellows, sir. Two hours. Slowly. They so deserve it. I can’t get these readily. Five in the humidor have stayed there as many years.

  6. I just had this one yesterday….my first long big cigar. I spent like, 2.5 hrs to finish it. Overall it’s very worth to try if you want to find something special and great aroma. Of course you must have enough time to enjoy it!

  7. This cigar is beautifully balanced so it does not put out the entire flavor too fast so you can enjoy the nice Hoyo taste for a long time until the finish. It takes me almost 2 hours to finish this one so I wait until when I’m a lone and enjoy it quietly.
