Hoyo de Monterrey Short Hoyo Pyramide EL 2011


Another new release in 2011... one of the three Limitadas... here ya go...

As for all Limitadas the wrapper is dark, some kinda dark colorado, maybe a bit too light to call it maduro... the surface is fine and matt, the rolling is tight. A smell of tobacco, dark chocolate and wood hits the nose... let's fire it up and see how it tastes.

The first third starts with some very pleasant aromas of milk coffee and chocolate, some decent notes of wood and sweetness which reminds me of honey...

During the second third you can fell the youth of this cigar... on one hand it's still very creamy but also a little bit harsh... aromas of espresso, dark roasted cacao, some kinda tary...

The last third... dominated by woodyness, hints of leather and tar.... it's young, but with a lot of potential imho. I'd no high expectations to this cigar but it really surprised me in a positive way...

The draw was perfect over the smokin time of 80 minutes (not too bad for a cigar of that size), the ash was very stable.
