Hoyo De Tradicion Toro Grande
Hoyo de Tradición cigars pay homage to Hoyo de Monterrey's time-honored Cuban heritage and taste. The blend consists of choice Honduran San Agustin and Dominican Piloto Cubano leaves, plus a savory Nicaraguan leaf from the remote volcanic island of Ometepe. Bound with a robust Connecticut Habano leaf, Hoyo de Tradición is BOX-PRESSED in a buttery, Honduran Jamastran Viso Rosado wrapper. The result is a creamy-smooth, medium-bodied smoke bubbling with rich, earthy, caramelized flavors.
It was very bland at the head and the body tasted bitter and nasty! Then again in did not get to my house in good condition.
The Jury is still deliberating, but I so far enjoyed the 5 I've smoked. I will try some more and see if this is a smoke worthy of my humidor...So far, so good.
I'm on my 10th Hoyo de Tradicion Toro Grande. This cigar never disappoints. Exceptionally tasty, toasty and smooth with rich tobacco flavor and absolutely no bitterness from first draw to the nub. I can find no fault in this cigar, which, IMHO, is be best medium body/medium strength cigar anywhere. Being a box-pressed stick, the draw is firm as expected. The only real fault is that you need to set aside a long period of time to smoke the Toro Grande. I'll go for the Robusto size for my next box. Try this one -- I guarantee it will find a deserving spot in your regular rotation.
