Hoyo La Amistad Black

Description

La Amistad completes the trilogy

Ever since Hoyo de Monterrey paired up with AJ Fernandez a few years back, the brand has been experiencing an awesome renaissance. And it’s well deserved! I mean, hell, when you mix two winners together, it’s hard to get anything besides A+ results. Called “La Amistad,” the Hoyo/AJ Fernandez collaboration has seen a release at the annual trade show the last two years, and this year doesn’t buck the trend: today, CI presents Hoyo La Amistad Black. 

Blended by A.J. Fernandez and hand rolled at his factory in Esteli, Nicaragua, each Hoyo La Amistad Black is a dark and enchanting treat. Featuring an oily, thick Ecuadorian Sumatra Oscuro wrapper, La Amistad Black is a full-bodied, spicy firecracker, featuring notes of cayenne pepper and black pepper, in addition to cinnamon and leather. It stays complex down to the end, thanks to the intricately blended and bunched Nicaraguan long-fillers… in all, this is probably the fullest-bodied, most flavorful Hoyo offering to date making it more than easy to recommend.

Lou and I both bought a box of the Hoyo black. This is a well constructed even burning cigar. A sweet tobacco core, with earthy flavors complimented by ample spice and creamy smoke. Medium to full bodied, a truly delicious smoke. AJ is a master! If haven’t tried it, you should! 90+ in our book. With love from the WV mountain top smoke shack.

Fills the mouth with smooth earthiness and spice. Toothy? I say nay. More like a pleasant kick in the teeth. Damn good smoke that is well constructed and worth every penny.

I got mostly creamy coffee notes mild nutty saltiness. Also some like cedar notes with a mild mouth pepper. Stays creamy with a sweet tobacco flavor further in smoke. Some pepper flavor on retrohale. Solid construction great ash, this is really good cigar.

Hoyo ICON Robusto 5-Pack just $1!!

For a limited time, score a Hoyo ICON Robusto 5-Pack (worth $38) with select Hoyo de Monterrey box purchase for just $1 more!

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.
