Hoyo De Monterrey Short Piramides 2011


Hoyo de Monterrey is one of the Cuban brand of cigars that I love the most. with it’s complex and rich profile that gives you an abundance of flavors that are considered to be the reason why this is one of the biggest success stories in Cuban cigar marketing.  The various sizes from HDM satisfy every cigar smoker’s needs from the stately double coronas, the ever popular Epicure No 2 and now the 2011 introduction of the Hoyo de Monterrey Edicion Limitada Short Hoyo Piramides.

Once again, we are seeing that the world trend in cigar smoking is moving in the direction of the shorter cigar that takes less time to smoke but in this case we’ll be given the pleasure of tasting some of Hoyo de Monterrey’s finest tobacco, aged for at least two years and the wrapper leaves coming from the Tapado which is shade grown black Cuban tobacco.

The dimensions of this short Hoyo Piramides is 5.3 inches and a ring gauge of 46, which should give you an hour of smoking, compared to the longer amount of time it takes to smoke a Montecristo No 2. This year’s Edicion Limitada will be shipped in boxes of 10, which seems to be yet another movement of making the price of a box of Cuban cigars that much more affordable for the consumer.

There’s no question that this is one of my favorite brands from Cuba and I, for one, can’t wait to sample this new introduction to the Hoyo De Monterrey family.
