Ring Gauge: 55
Hoyo de Monterrey Grand Epicure Limited Edition 2013 this Magnificent Cigar is the sixth Limited Edition to be under the Hoyo De Monterrey marque since the inception of Limited Edition
Cigars back at the turn of the century. The HDM Grand Epicures is a 5 1/4″ x 55 gauge beauty. They come in cedar wood boxes of 10 and are only available in small quantities.
The first third of the HDM Grand Epicure Edición Limitada 2013 starts out a little harsh, although flavors of strong earth,
dark chocolate, bitter espresso, leather and cedar can be discerned,
and the harshness dies down after the first half inch or so.
There are almost equal parts sweetness and bitterness on the finish after that with the generic sweetness coming out on top slightly.
I am noticing a bit of pepper on the retrohale at certain points,
but it comes and goes, and is just not that strong so far.
Construction-wise, the draw is a quite a bit looser than I like, albeit still smokable, and the burn is wavy,
although not problematic as of yet.
Like all Limited Edition cigars ,HDM Grand Epicures Limited Edition 2013 are rolled from Vuelta Abajo tobacco that has been specially selected and aged for at least two years. I’m not sure whether to smoke them or sell them!
