241. Hoyo de Monterrey Le Hoyo Río Seco

Store bought at Mellgrens Fine Tobacco.

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

Information: Hoyo de Monterrey brand was born in the plantation of the same name in San Juan y Martínez * (P.A.O.), in the heart of the Vuelta Abajo * (P.A.O.) region.
Hoyo de Monterrey is located on the fertile land along the banks of the river that runs through San Juan y Martínez.
All tobacco in the cigar is from Cuba.

Size: 5.5×56, Aromosos

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

Construction: Firm even feel all over when lightly squeezed.

Cold draw: Cedarwood.

1st third: Starts of creamy whipped cream, soft hint of burning cedarwood and bread.

2nd third: Some hints of spice in the background, otherwise very smooth.

Burn: Burns steady but a bit wonky, stable white/gray ash.

Smoke: Light smoke, cool feeling on the tongue and a medium tight draw.

3rd third: Keeps the same smooth flavours from previous parts.

Duration: 16:10-18:10 2h.

Conclusion: A mild bodied cigar with a mild strength profile. For being a new release from Habanos this cigar is very enjoyable, smooth and creamy flavours, sadly I don’t see how this can improve over time since it doesn’t have a complex profile.

Result: In my book this is an 91 point cigar.
