Hoyo ICON

Small-batch in 1865, ‘ICON’ic in 2019.

Where would the cigar industry be without the classic, Iconic releases of yesteryear? Some say that the name of the game these days is boutique. Plenty of connoisseurs almost hesitate to try cigars with name recognition, because everyone seems to be focused on the one-offs and the rare stuff. But despite these trends (that always come and go), there are a few brands that have always been there for us. Hoyo de Monterrey is one of those brands, delighting cigar fans for more than 150 years. How could you beat that track record? The answer: You don’t. You honor it properly with an ICON release.

With this single-size 5.5” x 49 robusto, Hoyo de Monterrey becomes the third cigar brand to be honored with an ICON release, joining Macanudo and Punch in this exclusive club. You can join in on the festivities too, and the cost of admission is just one of these phenomenal cigars. The first thing you’ll notice is the gorgeous Corojo wrapper, a tribute to the kind Jose Gener grew in Cuba when the name was registered way back in 1865. This sits atop a Dominican binder and filler, and provides a toasty, Cuban-esque accent to the mellow-medium bodied notes of cream, nuts, and cedar. A touch of pepper guarantees this is a blend that won’t make you yawn, and the excellent construction ensures you won’t have to put them down until you’re burning your fingers. The past is very strong for Hoyo, but the future is even brighter. Grab a box of Hoyo ICON, and raise a glass to another 150 years.

Very enjoyable
My favorite taste profile is Nicaraguan Oscuro. I do like some variety. I like cigars with some Costa Rican filler; the HC series Habano Colorado for example. I have only smoked two of these today after they arrived. Good draw with an even burn. One of the cigars had no issues. The other looked like there might be a fragile wrapper issue but I smoked it without unraveling. The flavor reminded me of a Cuban cigar which is also my opinion of the HC series Habano Colorado. I don't like really strong cigars and this one was quite acceptable. I don't use a lot of descriptive terms for taste. I either like the taste or I don't. I also smoke fast and this is a 1/2 hour smoke for me. I am a bargain smoker; good cigars, reasonable price. I will likely buy another box of these when they are on a great special again

Second one I tried was good
.Did not like the first one right out of the box. I put them in my 70rh humidor vs the 65rh and the second one I had was good. Here are my notes: medium, good smoke output, great burn & construction, 1/3 long peppery finish, nuts, coffee cream, leather, swetness on retro h. 2/3 pepper dies down still in the background, nuts, cedar, coffee cream .
