Cigar Review: Hoyo de Monterrey Serie Le Hoyo de San Juan

Cuban cigar, Hoyo de Monterrey

I heard a few people from Habanos S.A., the global distribution company for Cuban cigars based in Havana, say that this thick cigar is made for the U.S. market because it is so light in flavor. Strangely, I find most keen American cigar aficionados smoke stronger cigars than Cubans. Anyway, this remains a flavorful smoke with cedar, tea and dried flower character. I really appreciate the creamy texture and soft mouthfeel. And the thickness does indeed give a cool and fresh smoke. I will try it again when I get the chance.
