Review Notes: A Hoyo de Monterrey Rothschild Maduro was my choice for tonight and after letting it soak in the humidor for 5 months, it was time to enjoy. There are some who feel an extended humidor experience helps with the flavor, and others who believe cigars made with properly aged “tercios” (cigar leaf bales) are perfect right out of the box. The answer?? Experiment and find out for yourself! My maduro had a very mild tobacco scent and the cold smoke was also the same. The wrapper had the characteristically thick leaf maduro veins, but was well constructed. After the light, the body was very mild as a coffee flavor appeared. There was some sweetness and hints of fruit but nothing extraordinary. After a few more puffs the maduro kicked in and the sweetness came through with a slight background of creaminess. The coffee or mild chocolate continued through into the next stage (2nd third) and the sweetness picked up. The experience was like drinking a Starbucks with 2 sugars and 1 cream! The body was still mild and I was pleased with the consistent burn and thick ash of the cigar. It was mostly a one dimensional cigar at this point, and I was hoping for more. Finally at the band, some complexity picked up and the Starbucks was left in the background. The body was fuller and some cedar arrived which evolved into a more earthy taste at the end. The finish was average and I found it to be a little dry. If you enjoy bolder cigars, this ain’t it! However, for those who enjoy a milder maduro or those migrating to the “darker” side, for the price of around $3, this is an excellent choice.
