Hoyo De Monterrey Sabrosos Reviews
When I received my first box of these I was less than delighted. Due to this I tossed them in the humidor and ignored them for a week or two...to my surprise the cigars had lost much of the "vegetal" taste and were mild to strong with a sweet after taste, versus a bite. They burned more consistently and only improved with more time in a decent humidor. Knowing this, these are a steal for an everyday smoke. Granted the Rothchilds are superior but so is their price tag. I smoke both the sabrosas, rothchilds as well as fuente's and Cohiba's...and Romeo Y Julietta's when I can!
I'm surprised with some of the reviews. I thought this stick was smooth, good burn, with a good taste. Draw and consistency were also good. But i have to say construction was weak and thin.
I got this in a sampler pack and was pleasantly surprised that such as small cigar could pack quite a punch.
I was disappointed. The wrapper was thin and the cigar not rolled as tightly as others I prefer. The taste was disappointing, but with a surprisingly nice aroma.
This one surprised me. If you want a small cigar with a rich flavor profile that you'd only expect from from a lager size, this is it. Construction is solid, burn even and great medium to full flavor. Highly recommended.
These cigars are little, but still have the excellent flavor that the Jose Gener's do. A great cigar for the price. A must buy when I get low on small Maduro's.
I tried the Sabrosos, both natural & Maduro. I only found two out of 50 that would draw satisfactorily and all were way too strong, kind of like the grapevine I used to smoke as a kid. With Hoyos, BIGGER is better.
I bought a box of these and they were fantastic, great draw, great flavor and even burn. I enjoyed them so much I bought a second box- oops big mistake. The cigars in the second box are rolled so tight they are unsmokable. After 5 or 6 cigars I was forced to trash the rest of the box. Lesson learned.
Awesome Hoyo taste with a price that can't be beat. Don't let the small ring gauge fool you, these will satisfy. I usually smoke them on my commute home. Consistent with a suprisingly slow burn. Hoyo doesn't make a bad cigar, and with the Sabrosos, you get a respected brand for a bundle price.
