Hoyo alway excellent
- My favorite Hoyo by far just smoked my last one out of two boxes everyone perfect from beginning to end.
A Premium Cigar at a great price!
- I just ordered my 7th box of these today. The Double Corona never disappoints. I've had some of the best cigars in the world and this one ranks right up there with the best of them! Starts of with that classic Cubana flavor, and it gets better through the final two thirds of the stick. Once you get to the final third of the stick, you'll find a still-smooth and even burn. Flavor continues to impress and never burns hot unless you get in a hurry. Enjoy the entire stick slowly and you'll be rewarded with flavors that are hard to find in any other smoke.
One of the best
- My all time favorite never lets me down. From beginning to end the taste is consistent through out packed with great flavor and a very nice finish
Nice long evening
My smoking buddy, and I, thought this would be a perfect addition to our collections. We get together during weekday evenings quite often. (Weekends too but this is about the weekdays) We often smoke two cigars in a night. This becomes quite costly when you add up all of the nights.
We bought these Double Coronas because:
A) We love the Hoyo brand (especially Epicure Especial)
B) We needed a smoke that would stand as our only one
Last night we smoked our first one from the new box (bought here at CT) It was a pleasant and gentle smoke. The cigar wasn't overpowering in any way. As mentioned in another review, if you pay attention you may find this is a very nice "understated elegance" type of cigar. It's a good thing there weren't any overpowering flavours as a cigar this large would become daunting for some.
My only real criticism is with the minimal smoke. The draw was good but the smoke was not all there. I suppose some time in the humidor (we smoked this the day they arrived) may help. We'll try again in a couple weeks and I'll update our experience.
Either way, this is a fantastic cigar and we have decided to add them to our 'staple' collection.
Truly magnificent smoke
Very well made cigars with a truly first class build quality and flavour profile.
The smell starts with mostly barnyard with hints of tobacco sweetness. Once lit, the flavours are nice and light, honey, small touches of vanilla and a little mocha. As the cigar progresses some white pepper is noticed, especially on the retrohale! More sweet notes of tobacco and some oaty flavours peek out and tease the palette. Near the end the strength builds up and the flavours reach some pleasant yet potent levels. More white pepper and tobacco sweetness with a stronger more espresso style of coffee flavour can be tasted closer to the end along with some very intriguing molasses and treacle notes popping up.
The burn line can have one or two runs but it will even out relatively quickly. The length keeps the smoke cool as you start and the quality of both the blend and the tobacco keep it from getting tarry or sour near the nub. The draw is pretty easy, considering the length and I have never had trouble in that regard with these cigars.
If you decide on a box of these be prepared to wait, they will need a minimum of about a year before they are smokable and even then the ammonia levels can be a little too high for some tastes. This is a great example of a cigar you can purchase and lay down to rest, saving only for those moments when you wish to spend a good two hours or so enjoying a very fine and very tasty cigar.
It would be great paired with a fairly light bodied coffee or a nice grain whisky (Teelings Single Grain is a very good example).
