Hoyo de Monterrey Epicure No.2 - 15 cigars (packs of 3) [4.9" x 50]

The Hoyo de Monterrey Epicure No. 2 is one of the best examples of a robusto and probably in the top five of all brands robustos.

  • • Milder than the Cohibas, but it a cut above the Upmanns.
  • • A great Habano from Hoyo de Monterrey that should not be missing from the humidor of the true aficionado.

It is creamy and smooth yet it is robust. The aromas of tobacco are strong but the tastes of cocoa, cinnamon and dried berries make it a complex cigar.

Presentation

Hoyo de Monterrey Epicure No. 2– 15 cigars come in packs of 3 cigars. Habanos Packing Code D-C-C/P-3-n-15

Dimensions:

Length: 124mm

Diameter: 19.84mm

Ring Gauge: 50

Shape: Robusto

Appearance:

The Epicure No 2 has a reddish brown wrapper much like cinnamon with a few very light veins. It is smooth to touch and a little oily. It is shiny in the light. It is nice and spongy.

Smoking Notes:

Before lighting up

Strong aromas of earth are present on the foot. The pre-light draw is easy and smooth with a touch of cinnamon.

Burn/ Draw

The cigar has a nice easy draw from the very beginning, that remains consistent all the way through, and produces clouds of smoke. The burn is even, where the burn gets slower and the flavor smokier. The ash reaches almost 2 inches in length.

Initial third:

The Epicure No. 2 starts with a strong shot of tobacco combined with deep flavors of moist soil and lots of spices. After few puffs on the cigar, the cigar becomes smoother and the flavors settle. The spiciness is gone, being replaced by dried fruits and sweet floral flavors, still trailing the earthy profile of the cigar.

Middle third:

The Epicure No 2 gets sweeter as you smoke though the second third, with flavors of leather, honey and cocoa, and a long creamy finish – definitely its sweet spot!

Final third:

The final third turns to a fuller body with the sweetness of caramelized sugar with hints of tobacco and leather in a creamy context.

In summary, this cigar is full in abundance in a well-constructed, even-burning, good-drawing smoke. It has loads of smoke and plenty of taste.

Smoking time:

45 - 90 Minutes

Will be a great smoke soon. , 9/21/2021
By Chris
Have had single Epicures before never purchasing a box myself but just recently received 15 tubos. They are young with a date from this past winter. I tried one after letting it acclimate in my humidor for about 6 weeks. It started very mild with little smoke but fortunately as it burned down the flavors and strength picked up to what I was hoping for. Several touch ups required but it was a particularly breezy day so that is probably why. I will let the others rest for a few more months because I know that the Epicure is an outstanding smoke and I will look forward to it.
Help with draw , 9/12/2021

Every review I’ve read rates these cigars really high. I seem to have a problem with the draw on some. Maybe someone can tell me what I’m doing wrong. Help. Other ones are great.

Nice cigar. The wrapper color was not the consistency I expected. However, the cigar lived up to Hoyo de Monterrey standards.
