Hoyo Epicure No.2 Tubos - 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.


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


Length: 124 mm

Diameter: 19.84 mm

Ring gauge: 50

Shape: Robusto


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

Exactly as I remembered when I was in Cuba in 2001. Maybe Cuba has regained some quality control again as the cigars had lost consistency over the past 15 years
Fantastic Robusto from Hoyo De Monterrey , 3/6/2021

Arrived in top condition. I let them rest in the humidor for 3 days. Having one now as I really wanted one. I really love these cigars. It's a must have. Probably the best robusto cigar out there. All the different flavours you get while you smoke, it's such a great pleasure to smoke. If you are looking for a Robusto this is a the best buy.

Probably my favorite Cuban cigar. I have always been a fan of the MC #2. This cigar is mild with a great draw and even smoke. Something I hold back for myself and don’t share with most people.
A creamy explosion of spices. , 12/16/2020

Absolutely fantastic customer service from Cigar Terminal. No question about it. These are genuine Cubans. This cigar is amazing. It goes back and forth from sweet and creamy to an explosion of spices. It burns smooth with a solid 2 inch ash. Definitely in my top 5. Nothing short of a delicious treat which is never boring, and full of surprises and flavor.
