The Hoyo de Monterrey Short Hoyo Pirámides Limited Edition 2011 was released at the end of last year by Habanos S.A, describing it as mild yet complex, a perfect cigar for beginning smokers. I managed to get mine (smoked a fiver for this review) in href="">Rome’s La Casa del Habano this spring and had waited a couple of months before sitting down tête-à-tête. Seems like it was worth the wait.


Appearance : 4.5 out of 5 stars /> The cigar is a medium brown color, and the leaf is smooth and consistent with a tracery of thin veins. Beneath the Hoyo de Monterrey band is the gold Edición Limitada band. Pre-light, the aroma is buttery with a hint of pepper and notes of toasted wood.

Construction : 4.5 out of 5 stars /> The construction is just as solid as it looks. The cigar smokes consistently and shows a nice burn. The draw is excellent, producing a lot of aromatic smoke.

Flavor : 4 out of 5 stars /> The pre-light aroma is fairly indicative of the flavors and aromas while smoking. It is indeed a mild-to-medium, pleasant taste, buttery and salty, with a hint of fresh bread and dry, toasty wood. There is a bit of spiciness, yes, but it doesn’t really come through until about midway through the smoke. The baking aroma and the woody taste are the most consistent elements throughout the smoke although I also detected some meaty and more unusual flavors.

Value : 3.5 out of 5 stars /> There are many great cigars for about half this price, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that this one isn’t worth the higher price. It’s a delightful and complex cigar with a lot to offer.

Overall Rating : 4.25 out of 5 stars (4.25) /> The Hoyo de Monterrey Short Hoyo Pirámides Limited Edition 2011 does cost a little more than you might usually pay for a cigar, but it’s a great treat. If you like milder cigars but prefer the complexity you’re used to finding in medium and full-bodied cigars, this is a cigar which will intrigue and surprise you. If you’re brand new to smoking, this is a light cigar which will give you a wide range of experience and a top-notch introduction. Something that a href="">Montecristo Open, which was supposed to be the Cuban cigar for novice smokers, can’t give.
