Mysteriously enough, the first Honduran Hoyo de Monterrey cigars were born of seed smuggled from Cuba in a diplomatic pouch. Today, in the uncompromising style of cigar master Estelo Padrón, Hoyo de Monterrey cigars are still made the nineteenth-century way, cured and aged in their own time by the wind and the weather as nature intended. The resulting full-bodied cigars are as deeply satisfying as they are authentically Honduran.
The Hoyo has always been my favorite brand -- in particular the Excalibur line. This batch would get a 5 star except that the draw is much tighter than I usually find with Hoyos. P&C might consider having this identified along with strength. P&C service has always been superb.
