Very settled and study
old Cuban tobacco aroma no fluctuation in the taste
it’s a typical Epicure#2
however the leaves was stored for minimum three years before rolling
it’s a medium body
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.
