574. Hoyo de Monterrey Le Hoyo des Deux Vintage 2001
From my own collection.
Location: This review was made indoors in Mellgrens Fine Tobacco’s cigar lounge.
From a 50 cab without any bands, bought at La Chavette in Paris, France in 2016.
Size: 6.2×42, Coronas Grandes (Long Corona).
Wrapper: Nutty, smooth with tiny veins.
Construction: Firm even feel when lightly squeezed.
Cold draw: Light wood.
1st third: Starts with a medium roasted coffee, toasted bread and a light cedarwood. Overall very smooth.
2nd third: Keeps the flavours with a smooth experience.
Burn: Burns sharp with a firm and stable whiteish ash.
Smoke: Voluminous smoke with a cool feeling on the tongue and a light draw.
3rd third: No changes, well balanced to the end.
Duration: 18:35-19:55, 1h 20 min.
Conclusion: A medium bodied cigar with a mild strength profile.
Result: In my book this is an 91 point cigar.
