Recently discovered this cigar. I Since have switched as my everyday smoke. Great taste and good construction.
Great cigars nice even burn, nice even draw and nice flavors the flavors in the cigar for me was apple cider, cedar, cream, gingerbread, graham cracker, leather, pepper and some sweet grass like hay.
First of all, I'm frankly disappointed in the other four reviews for this smoke. I have almost never had a tight draw on one of these and I've been smoking them for 2 years, one or two a day. (I did get one box once that was a bit milkshakey). I get them by the box, keep them in a humidor and they've always burned great! Those who have had the unraveling while burning problem must have left them laying out for a while (don't do that). For the buck this is the BEST bang you will find. Rich, flavorful and just plain enjoyable. I would highly recommend the Maduro wrapper. Smoke ON!!
Nice fat, dark, nutty, choco bliss, (maduro of course) leave these rest for a long time at a LOW humidity (60-62 Rh) in their cedar sleeved aluminum coffins & you got yerself a sweet med. bodied delight at a pretty cheap cost...luv 'em!
What a great cigar - at this time, it has to be my #1.. I couldn't resist and pared it with a double bock Salvator (beer).I wanted to smoke it down to nothing or use a clip!! used a v-cut (doing all v-cuts these days to compare) draw was EXCELLENT with the v-cut, unlike others that seem to draw too loose.While not as creamy at the start (or throughout to me - especially when compared to a Bolivar Cofradia Suntuoso Corona Extra) it was a bit spicy. I am not big on spice and there was certain amount of spice in the beginning (perhaps I lit it too harsh/wrong). After that (cold draw cold aroma matched) hints of coco and nuttiness after the first inch smoked and it would bounce between chocolate coco and nutty and every now and again some spice. (maduro wrapper)
This is a great tasting smooth cigar with an even burn that won't take all day to smoke. Great cigar, great price.
I ve been a Hoyo fan for many years. The Maduro wrapper on these little gems will knock your socks off. OIly, and little bits of crystallized oil, very tasty and unique. One of the best Maduro cigars you can buy anywhere at any price. It s full-bodied but in no way harsh. Leathery, chocolatey, coffee-like richness. Smooth but dark. It s like teleporting yourself to Honduras for a few minutes. The only niggle I ve had is that once in awhile the wrapper will peel off. I can t understand it, these are very well made cigars. It may be that I m storing them at slightly too high humidity. It s not a big deal, just some constructive feedback. This is one of the best cigars of its kind to be had at any price. At least try a 5-pack, but you could spring for a whole box and not regret it.
Even burn, consistent draw. Construction is good. For my money the Hoyo cigars are the best value going. I would pay twice as much and still be happy( don't get any ideas FSS!) Great all around cigar for the newbie to the more advanced taste. If you are looking for a daily smoker or a golf course smoke this is it.
This cagar has become one if not the most favorite cigar that I have smoked. It makes me want to chew the smoke.
For the money the Rothchild Maduro is a 10.
I smoked my first of these last night having bought them on a whim. I am a regular smoker of Cuban Hoyos living, as I do, outside the US. I have to say that I thought these Honduran cigars were exceptional. Beautifully constructed, excellent draw and a wonderfully rounded flavour and aroma made for a truly first class smoke. I enjoyed this almost as much as a Cuban Cohiba Lancero. A cigar of three parts in my view. Sweet and mild in the first third, followed by rich leather and spice in the second and finishing once again on a slightly lighter, mellow note. Not a trace of bitterness throughout meaning a delight from start to finish. I had none of the burn difficulties expressed by the gentleman from Seattle. Steady all the way through, I had 3 inches of ash clinging on at one stage. Near to cigar perfection at an amazing price.
