    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.

    Appearance : [rating:4.5/5]
    Pretty to view, the particular shade of the wrapper almost seems to glow.

    Construction : [rating:4.5/5]
    Well built, though it feels as if it might be a bit tight. It’s not though. Just well constructed by hand. Kudo’s to the manufacturer!

    Flavor : [rating:4.5/5]
    All I can say is, WOW! This smoke won’t be for everyone. Starting out, the Hoyo de Monterrey Du Roi is a kick starter. It will definitely grab your attention with the sudden but moderate spicey wood taste. The second third is where the adventure truly gets going. I’d suggest you have a drink nearby, something soothing. The final third maintained the strong spice until the end.

    Value : [rating:4/5]
    Definitely a value for the price.

    Overall Rating : [rating:overall/5]
    A little warning! This is not the average everyday cigar. Smoke with care! If you are one of those that like the calm tame taste, this isn’t the smoke for you. However, if you like living on the edge, you have to try this one! I’m sure that those who aren’t used to this strong of a smoke might have a negative review. Regardless, as a more experienced smoke, I highly enjoyed it.

      A real suprise for the Hoyo line, considering the strength. Probably the most deserving of the “King Of The Mountain” name!

      One of those opportunities I spoke of came to pass recently and I have a box of these on the way. I can hardly wait.

      Not a bad smoke, all in all. I wasn’t overly thrilled with the final few hits, but the rest of this cigar stood true to the brand of excellence. The only complaint I had is an insistant run in the burn that kept wanting to come back. Other than that, a very fine smoke.
