Ive smoked cubans for a time, and these hoyo seconds are deliciously similar. As a 2dollar stick, these gems are famous smokes best kept secret!
I have long been in search of a decent, affordable daily smoke. I usually end up disappointed, most frequently for issues with consistency and burn. The General Honduran No. 10s, however, have been a definitive joy. They re not perfect. One oughtn t buy a $25 bundle expecting Monte No. 2 quality. But these are really quite nice. I had only one in my first bundle that did not burn well and it s not inconceivable that I may have failed in the lighting process! . As far as consistency of taste, these are better than any bundle I ve sampled. I found them to have a nice medium-open draw, producing copious smoke, and with a savory medium-body, hinting at buttered toast. I can t vouch for the veracity of the claim that they come from the Punch/Hoyo De Monterrey factory, but they do have a certain Hoyo character. Based on my first bundle, definitely recommended as a daily smoke. If subsequent bundles are consistent with this first bundle, I ll be a devotee.10
I like a cigar with my morning coffee, or to replenish my energy on a busy day. If you are like me, and you are like me and can t afford to smoke premiums everyday, this is a good choice. I just finished off my first bundle and I recommend them. It is just the right size for a quick break from work, it delivess honest tobacco flavor, and it burns and draws quite well, delivers a cloud of agreeable smoke. It is a little rustic looking, but I like the rustic look, it reminds me of cigars from the 19th Century. It s not my favorite everyday cigar, but I will buy again for sure.10
