Before lighting up
The pre-light aroma is of buttery popcorn, which is followed by a peppery under tone with oak and toast, a very seductive and enjoyable smell to say the least. The cold draw of the Hoyo is fairly easy with the typical bit of firmness associated with the Pirámides vitola.
The Short Hoyo Pirámides puts out an abundance of smoke when you draw on it, it puts out little to no smoke when it’s resting, though it stays burning the whole time. Very nice.
The early notes of the cigar has the flavor of a salty pretzel, though the saltiness fades away quickly to leave a very pleasant toasty note. The draw is just the slightest bit labored, though again this isn’t a surprise given the shape. Before the end of the first third, the toasty note turns to a drier, woodier note that turns the body of the Hoyo de Monterrey from soft and fluffy to drier and robust. Varying degrees of spice come out in the first third but never harsh or aggressive.
Into the second third come some pepper but soon fades and the toasty essence from the first third returns with some light cedar.
The last third tastes of grilled pork and the pepper increases providing some complex flavors to a great finish.
In summary, this flavor profile is most agreeable: medium-plus, smokeable any time of the day, not too strong, not too mild, some nice flavor changes, and a solid bit of pepper, pretty much everything you could ask for in a cigar.
