Quick Smoke: Hoyo de Monterrey Dark Sumatra Espresso

27 May 2007

Each Saturday and Sunday we’ll post a Quick Smoke: not quite a full review, just our brief take on a single cigar.

With its blend of five tobaccos, including the extremely dark Ecuadorian Sumatra wrapper, this Honduran line is a viable contender in the seemingly endless release of powerful cigars. But it doesn’t sacrifice strength for taste or deliver a high nicotine punch. The Dark Sumatra provides a smooth experience with a good tobacco taste that’s laced with coffee, cocoa, and leather. While I have enjoyed all the vitolas, I find the Espresso – the smallest at four and ½ inches by 50 ring gauge – the most satisfying. The flavors seem to last just long enough. If you want to give it a try, they go for considerably less online than the $3.70 MSRP.

Verdict = Buy.

    Most certainly one of my favorites. The size is perfect for a short, well-flavored smoke. I love the amount of aromatic smoke that it gives off. Just a great all-around cigar!
