The Hoyo Palmas Extra has a nice and attractive dark brown (Colorado Maduro) wrapper. The wrapper looks very well rolled, rather oily and smooth to the touch. A few small veins are apparent, but this is no big deal. It feels well packed from head to foot, with just the right amount of give when squeezed between fingers. The beautiful red and golden Hoyo band gives to this vitola a very elegant look.

Smoking Notes:

Before lighting up

Aromas of sweet tobacco emanates from the wrapper, there are also some notes of chocolate, wood. On the foot, some fruits, coffee, spices and few hints of nuts. The cold draw is smooth, just tight enough, and also brings some spicy flavors on the palate, some nutmeg and some delicious tobacco. It leaves some saltiness on the lips.

Burn/ Draw

Cutting the cap is very easy and leaves a neat cut. Setting the foot on fire is equally effortless; a nice charcoal shows up at the tip of the cigar. The first few draws bring some darker flavors, some black coffee, some wood. It is still very salty, with some herbal notes as well. The Hoyo Palma Extra generates lots of thick smoke from the get-go. The burn starts off slightly wavy, but as the cigar goes on, it requires just one or two touch-ups in order to remain straight.

Initial third:

After the darker flavors from the first few puffs, the flavors mellow out and are now more sweet and creamy. The main flavors in the first third are of wood, coffee, nut (mainly walnut), with some notes of spiciness, slowly ramping up. The body is at a medium level. The ash has a nice grey color and holds on until the second third. The smoke is still very abundant and the draw remains perfect.

Middle third:

In the middle third, the flavors mellow even more, towards mild to medium, the saltiness from the first third has recede to the background and there is now more creaminess. Lots of sweet and creamy flavors, some wood, spices, nuts, coffee and some citrus notes. The burn and the draw are still optimal and the cigar continues to release plenty of smoke.

Final third:

In the final third, the flavors increase a bit, and the body too, around medium. In terms of flavors, the sweetness has disappeared and the flavors are closer to those discovered at the opening of the cigar. Still plenty of coffee, wood and toastiness. The flavors are overall still very creamy and typical Hoyo. There are also some fresh notes of fruits. A beautiful ending to a refined cigar.

In summary, the Hoyo de Monterrey Palmas Extra is a great choice for a beginner in Cuban cigars, with delicious woodsy flavors and cream

This is a great cigar in a small package.It has abundance of taste, leather-cedar and some peppery notes with a creamy smoke that coats your palate with all its wonderful taste. I was pairing it with a old dark rum and it held its one and was a delight to enjoy. A 35-40 min smoke and at a great price.
Great casual smoke , 1/29/2016

Silky, sweet, creamy, and notes of cedar and leather along the way. A cigar that pairs well with just about anything, and won't overwhelm you on an empty stomach. For $100 a box, it's a no brainer. You'll be proud when you offer this to a friend, and satisfied when you smoke it yourself.
Recommended for anyone who's newer to cigars or an experienced smoker looking for something casual.
