159. Hoyo de Monterrey Epicure No. 2 Reserva Cosecha 2012

Store bought at Mellgrens Fine Tobacco.

Location: This review was made indoors in a cigar lounge.

Wrapper: Milk chocolate, oily and silky smooth wrapper with tiny veins.

Construction: Firm even feel.

Cold draw: Light cedarwood notes.

1st third: Starts of with a whipped creamy note with a almondy finish.

2nd third: In the second part there is an sweetness emerging from the creamy note.

The burn: Burns steady and fairly sharp with a white stable ash.

Smoke: Voluminous white smoke with a cool feeling on the tounge.

3rd third: Keeps the same smooth flavours from previous part all the way till the end.

Conclusion: Well it’s a mild to medium bodied cigar, no difference in flavours from the regular Epicure No. 2. It’s a good cigar but nothing special in my opinion.

Result: In my book this is an 89 point cigar.
