Very enjoyable cigar. Cold draw: I got notes of sweet cream, honey, and a touch of cherry. Smoked for 1 hour 24 mins, notes of smokey wood, white pepper, and hints of espresso bean. It was a light cigar that didn't change much through the whole smoke. It has a very even burn and the ash was tight with a silver gray color. Only down side I had was with the last 15-20 mins of smoking it needed puffs more often to keep from going out.
Ridiculous smoke for a ridiculous price. Hoyo de Monterrey never disappoints. A must have in your rotation.
Throughly enjoy these sticks during my monthly poker game with friends. Consistant even burn every time.
