    Hoyo de Monterrey Le Hoyo des Dieux

    Origin : CubaHoyo de Monterrey
    Format : Corona Grande
    Size : 155 x 16.67 mm
    Ring : 42
    Weight : 10.14 g
    Price : ~$420 for a cabinet of 50

    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.

    Appearance : [rating:4.5/5]
    The first thing that I noticed about this cigar is, of course, the appearance: the Corona Grande format looks excellent, and the bandless presentation in the Cabinet of 50 only serves to underline it. The wrapper was smooth, with a few slight imperfections, and no big veins.

    Construction : [rating:4.5/5]
    It seems like this particular model seldom has draw problems (according to what I read in other reviews). Mine was close to perfection, easy draw (despite the small ring gauge) and loads of smoke just how I like it 🙂

    Flavor : [rating:4.5/5]
    The stick provides a rich bouquet of flavors – in the beginning, dark chocolate and black pepper, then quite powerful woody/cedar notes. The flavors aren’t overwhelming, not sure if it’s good or bad though. I think this is the particularity of le Hoyo des Dieux. I guess some people won’t really like it, but it’s fine with me.

    Value : [rating:3/5]
    Ahm, these ones are better to receive as a gift 🙂

    Overall Rating : [rating:overall/5]
    It’s good to smoke in the morning, when you’re not ready for something strong. Could be a good start if you’re about to spend an evening full of good and stronger cigars… Enjoy it as much as I did! 🙂

      Smoked a box of 3/03 a while back. Great cigar

      I think you defined the flavor very well. That was exactly what I experienced – woody, powerful yet not overwhelming.
