Folks, I haven't cracked this box for 6 months.
Prelight: This cigar was perfect in all aspects. The construction was flawless...
Hey there my fine fellow LLG's. Its been an up and down month for me thus far. I returned home late last nite from an unexpected trip and found myself sitting on the deck of my new place to restless to sleep and too exhausted to do anything productive. Granted it was around 2:45 in the...
'04 Hoyo de Monterrey Epi #2 - Thanks to Justinphilly
Let me start out by saying this is my first CC HdM, and frankly, I hope it was my first of thousands.
Construction was perfect.
Pre-Light aroma was a less than subtle CC woody funk that begged to be burned.
Clipped the cap (a very thick...

I picked these babies up together at the local LCdH for $24.40 each and I thought it would be fun to do a head to head review. :ss :ss I have never tried either of these vitolas before but I have tried others from each line
The RyJ Short Churchill was up first (earlier this week).
I did not...
So i just got my 1st delivery of ISOM goodness.
i intended to let them sit a little bit before sampling the goods, but when checking my sticks, i noticed a little crack in the foot of this cigar, so what the heck, i fired it up.
construction is very good... not flawless due to...
To celebrate my bananas I decided to break out a Hoyo de Monterrey Epicure #2 I received from Daklugs in his newbie Halliburton trade deal. It is cold and windy here so I headed out to my favorite cigar-friendly pub to enjoy this treat. After a bite to eat I ordered a Glenmornagie 12 yr. port...
Just read RockStrars comments in the Sweet, Creamy and Smooth thread about the Epi #2. He said that he found them spicy and bitter when young.
I guess I should have titled this Epi #1 ... sorry for the confusion.
Smoked an 02 Epi #1 a few nights ago. It was the first stick out of the box...
Im sure its been done before but here we go again since this is my first
Epi #2, and just received a box. Box date is SEP 05 so these are some relatively new sticks, and arrived in the usual wet form but i couldnt resist. The triple cap was extremely distinct on this cigar, more so than on any...
So leo and i both smoked our hdm epi 2's today at the park.
He'll chime in later i'm sure.
Man i almost did not want to take flame to this thing because it looked so good. A lot of times i wont blabber about how good a cigar looks, but this cigar looked and felt real good in the hands. Pre draw...
Damn, life just keeps getting better and better lately.
Finally burned one of these babies that IHT gave me after letting 'em rest in the Humi for a few weeks. Man am I impressed!! They were even better than some of the reviews I've read from you guys.
Good construction with no noticeable...
Hoyo de Monterrey Epicure #2
Box Code: May 2002
To qualify my review, I am a fairly new smoker of ISOMs.
Initially, this cigar had a nice prelight aroma...cedar and something else that seems to be characteristics of other Hoyos I've had...maybe it's what others call "fruity"
I'm trying to figure out which box to order next. As a lot of you know, my favorite is the JL2. Taking that into consideration, which should I try next? I'm looking for another medium bodied cigar with good, rich flavors and a nice amount of smoke. I've had a few people suggest...
