Hoyo de Monterrey combines a burley base with black cavendish and choice bright Virginias. Subtly flavored with vanilla, it features a pleasant top note that only adds to this blend's great aroma.

Lane Limited - Hoyo de Monterrey.

The name puzzles me, it's nothing like a Hoyo' cigar!

The blend includes quite an even amount of each tobacco variety, is a fairly uniform ribbon, and isn't too wet. The smell from the tin is clearly one of vanilla; I couldn't remember the ingredients in this but I didn't need to read the description once I'd took a sniff.

The first bowl didn't exactly impress me, it seemed a bit of a bore. But it began to grow on me over the morning! I get an unequivocal vanilla flavour from the smoke, stronger for the initial part of a bowl, and abating to being just below medium. The tobaccos have more of a BurCav flavour than they do Virginia; there's no zesty Va traits, but lots of nuts with a touch of honey. The smoke is exceptionally thick and cool, without a bite to be had from it. The burn from Hoyo is of a medium speed, but can go a bit quickly if it's puffed too avariciously.

The room becomes a bit full of smoke, and the nicotine's mild.

I want to give Hoyo de Monterrey a high rating, but I think, to be fair, it isn't any better than a lot of the other vanilla aromatics out there. With that in mind, three stars seems fair!

Recommended.
