New Hoyo is Horray!

The new Hoyo cigars arrived about 10 days ago.  Just as we ere finishing smoking the final 2 cigars in our CigarMadness2016 contest.  So it took a few days for the msoke to clear to get to this review.  At first I was concerned that after smoking the great cigars in the final rounds of the c0ntest I would be disappointed with whatever came next.  Thankfully, that was this gem from General.  The new Hoyo builds on a reputation that is over 100 years old,  To learn all about Hoyo click here for a nice video.

New Hoyo

For starters, this is a very nice looking cigar.  It has a beautiful medium brown wrapper.  It’s not overly veiny but has a nice smooth oily feel.  I had no problems punching and lighting the stick which gave off lots of nice blue smoke.

The cigar smokes cool and the initial taste is of cedar and leather, very dry.  It quickly develops some mellow creaminess.   AS I continue to smoke this cigar hints of cinnamon appear.  There is a bit of a bite to the cigar, but not offensive in nay way.  The final third of e smoke is a bit heavier but still clean without a lingering aftertaste.  I like cigars whose flavors change during the smoke and this certainly fits that bill.

This is a well put together cigar,  The construction is pretty close to flawless.  It burns evenly with a tight edge and kept a very long ash.  The draw was comfortable.  I find a draw that’s too open and the cigar smokes too hot.  This one is perfect.

Sadly, since these are not available online and new to the stores it was hard to find a price.  If you can find these cigars less than $10, I’d consider them a great value.  Enjoy!
