The cigar is looking good; the wrapper is slightly veiny and wrinkly, which gives it a rustic look. It has a nice light brown color, Claro, and the cigar doesn't have any soft spot, it is pretty well bunched from the foot to the head.

Smoking Notes:

Before lighting up

Strong tobacco smell comes out from the wrapper. There are also spicy and grassy notes. Typical Hoyo series.

Burn/ Draw

Once cut, the draw is good, while slightly on the tight side, and gives some aromas of wood, coffee with some notes of sweetness and cinnamon. Upon the lightening of the cigar, there is only powerful tobacco, with few notes of pepper. The burn line is a bit wavy at beginning, but does not affect the quality of the smoke; it does not require further attention. The ash is solid so far.

Initial third:

The first third of the cigar is dominated by a strong flavor of tobacco, alongside with some grassy notes, like flavors of tea. The smoking experience is pretty smooth despite the medium strength of flavors; it is also sweet thanks to sweet cinnamon, milk coffee, toasty aromas.

Middle third:

In the middle third, the main tobacco aromas are still dominant, however the flavors of nuts, of milk chocolate are more noticeable. There are also notes of bitterness and saltiness. The whole flavors work well together while the body rises to a medium/medium to full profile. The draw is still very good and the ash is building up solidly at the foot.

Final third:

The final third has typical flavor profile of the Le Hoyo series, mostly wood, nuts, toasted tobacco and some spices. There is still some sweetness, some milk chocolate. It is still very smooth, feels like eating a chocolate candy. This cigar is enjoyable until the very end, a true finger burner.

In summary, it is a very short smoke that packs all the great Cuban flavors.

Smoking time:

20 – 35 Minutes

Absolute Steal! , 12/3/2020
By Jerry
Considering the quality of this cigar, when compared with its price, makes it an absolute steal! My average duration of smoking it is 30 minutes. Appearance shows slight veins, but who cares? Taste is "typical Cuban" and could be described as medium strength. Nicotine is light. While I prefer the R&J series, this cigar is a very nice change. My only complaint....slightly tight draw, not insurmountable; but, not as good as other Cubans of the same dimensions.

Had Du Marie in sample pack and tried this one upon receipt. Nice steady burn and quite robust for such a small stick.
