Cigars HOYO DE MONTERREY Churchill review, 2014
This pre-revolution Cuban cigar of the classic Cuban format Julieta N2 is not produced anymore since 2012. My exemplars of cigars Hoyo de Monterrey Churchill are of the year 2009. This vitola was and is one of those cigars that are particularly loved by connoisseurs of fine smoke all over the world, and it can be found in collections of the true cuba-lovers.

The last exemplars I have for my tasting are not looking great anymore, but sometimes you have no choice but to get cigars from the vendors who are either not very careful, or made mistakes storing this already rare cigar. But this is all I have. My shabby cigars don’t put me off at all, the other way around – I am full of curiosity how they have kept their gorgeous content in spite of the visual faults. Many of the advanced smokers of cuban cigars say: “It’s pretty hard to spoil cuba” (meaning, it’s almost impossible to ruin a special taste of cuban cigar with bad storing or other careless attitude, because even in a good cuban cigar which survived years of incorrect treatment you will always find something left from the inimitable cuban tobacco flavour). Well, let’s see…
The aroma is very discreet. I catch the notes of barnyard, dry manure and hay.
