Hoyo Reposado en Cedros

The Hoyo legacy continues....

Adorned with a dark, oily Ecuadorian Sumatra leaf and generously filled with a dense and hearty blend of Honduran, Nicaraguan, and Dominican long-fillers, Hoyo Reposado is brimming with flavor. Notes of spices, earth, cedar, and coffee meld perfectly into a complex, medium-bodied smoke. Smooth, flavorful, and perfectly constructed, Reposado en Cedros is a worthy addition to the Hoyo de Monterrey name. Each cigar comes individually sleeved in cedar and beautifully presented in rustic, 24-count Spanish cedar boxes further adding to the goodness.

Customer Reviews of “Hoyo Reposado en Cedros”
“CI put a single Hoyo Reposado in with my last order. Decided to toast it the other night, so I grabbed the cigar, a bottle of Evan Williams Bourbon, and put on some Blues. I either like a cigar or I don't. I lean toward Maduros and Corojos as a rule because I like spicy-sweetness in my smokes. The Reposado had a definite sweet finish, with a very light spiciness. It was very smooth with no harshness at all. A medium weight IMO. I liked this cigar. Ya know, I like the Blues, but there's just somethin' about those songs that make me so damn sad....”

“This was just a wee bit of a disappointment as far as this brand is concerned. To me, it just tasted woodsy and dry. Construction is just fine and the cigar smoked well, but there was, at least for me, no real flavour development.”

“This cigar is a trick one. If you have time and the patience this cigar is worth the wait.”
JJ of Brooktondale, NY
“Reviews are misleading, this is a great smoke. Just look at how often it is either out of stock or backordered. Definitely a top five choice”
DW of Charlottesville, VA
“This is one of my favorites from the Hoyo line. The aroma was a nice mix of sweet earthiness with sweet creamy chocolate and a bold cedar note throughout the cigar. Aroma was a sweet salty wood with is hard to explain but when you smell it, it will remind you of a good old fashion Cuban. A great cigar to always have in my humidor. In my review I gave it a 97 out of 100 so that of course makes it box worthy. I would highly recommend this cigar to anyone. Also on a side note, CI does a great job in packaging them.”

Hoyo de Monterrey Reposado en Cedros

Posted by Steve R

A couple weeks ago I received a request to review Hoyo de Monterrey Reposado en Cedros. I’ve been meaning to try this new addition to the HdM stable, so I agreed. Without further ado....

I’ve selected the Sueno size. A 5.25”x54 Robusto. At first glance, nothing about this cigar reminds me of Hoyo de Monterrey. In my mind, this is a shame. HdM is an old, old brand with a ton of history and tradition. I feel none of that looking at this cigar. No familiar colors, no familiar art, and the Hoyo de Monterrey name is difficult to find at first glance despite being printed right at the top. I’m a sucker for a good story, and the romanctic picture this powerful brand name paints is not being portrayed here.

However, I do like the cedar sleeve! I’m also a sucker for bells and long as the cigar is good.

The cedar sleeve has been removed and I’m looking at the wrapper. It’s thick and leathery with a marbleized color that’s mostly chestnut-brown. The pre-light aroma consists of cedar, likely a direct influence of the cedar sleeve. The cigar is firmly rolled, free of soft spots, and feels very heavy in the hand.

As for the flavor....well, there’s not much to say. The cigar is very smooth and balanced, but pretty cut and dry. Like most HdM sticks, there is no evolution of flavor. No twists or turns. Just a consistent flavor from start to finish, which is likely why so many folks enjoy them. They know exactly what they’re going to get with every puff, every time they pick up a Hoyo de Monterrey. This is what I got: a soft, somewhat creamy bouquet with a sweet, cedary finish. The aroma is toasty and woodsy with a hint of zest....a black pepper note. This remains true for the entire burn....with the addition of a minty influence from time to time. A very odd influence. Maybe my palate is off, but to me there is no doubt a trace of mint that hits my palate now and then, and lingers long whenever I notice it. That part is not for me.

Construction-wise it's great, what you would expect from a HdM. A well-rolled cigar that burns slow, cool, and even with a good draw. The cigar pumps out a generous amount of smoke with every third draw. I draw in threes....two short draws then one, long, exaggerated draw, allowing the smoke to roll around my palate a bit before slowly exhaling – always saving a little for the nose.

Now it’s time to rate the cigar. The flavor thing stands out in my mind. That minty note! Like I said, it’s not for me. Had the cigar been consistent in cedar and toast, it may have scored slightly higher despite being one dimensional and uneventful. But, I just can’t get past the mint. Weird!
