Review: Hoyo de Monterrey Le Hoyo de San Juan

It has been six years since Habanos S.A. released a new regular production Hoyo de Monterrey, and the release of this smoke could not have been more perfect. While the world is looking for larger ring gauge offerings, I believe the days of looking for super strong smokes is over and there is a return to a flavor focused offering. The big ring gauge craze is still present, but at least we are getting somewhere with simply making a flavorful cigar or HabanoHabanos has slowly been introducing large ring gauge offerings in their bigger and more well known brands, and this year at the Habanos Festival they revealed the new large offering. The offering was tittle Le Hoyo de San Juan, and was the newest addition to the Hoyo de Monterrey brand. It is an offering that is meant to pay tribute to the old brand, but do it in a manner that is modern/new, but also traditional. The Habano is just now making its way into stores across the globe, and today I take a look at this new release and see how it smokes. Continue for review!

Smoked one over the weekend, SUPER YOUNG, great aging potential, I agree with you that these are one of my favorite HDM's (not normally a big fan). A few years down the road these might be a go to smoke, as for now (imo) there was a touch too much youth in the profile for me to smoke anymore of the 9 I have left any time soon. I got a nice malty note.

I didn't think it was too young, but it definitely had youth to it. I will say though, for being as young as it, it will be amazing! I see the light at the end of the tunnel and it makes a difference. I am sure I could come across some truly "young ones" though.

This is a brand I keep getting pointed towards, and the flavors on this one sound like my style. I'll have to look.
