HDM Pirimides EL 2003

Must say i left this cigar for last , as i went through a box bought in 03 . By 05 they where finished and none to be found. If there where any they where gouged in price. Or being offered by shady vendors. I remember them to be powerful for a Hoyo, more like a bolivar loaded with chocolate and barnyard. Lets see what time has done for these exquisite cigars.
I must say the construction on this cigar was excellent. Wrappers much lighter than i remember but very toothy and oily!



Pre light draw Cocoa, Caramel slight barnyard.

1st 1/3
At first strong spice, then no one flavor that really stood out. More like a melange or meld of flavors. Cocoa, Cream , Sour Strawberries are the main impressions!



2nd 1/3

Cocoa cream still linger more of a caramel taste. Then Milk Duds candy still acidic not really quite Twang. The smoke coats the palate in layers taunting the senses. A few retro-hales reveals a cream fudge like taste.





Notice the toothyness or the wrapper ash laced with mineral specks!



Final 1/3
Here comes the TWANG, Strong tobacco core. Still leaves a coat of creaminess on the palate. Woody ,TWANG ,cream tobacco are the main impressions. Black pepper more TWANG long creamy finish.
The flavors are well balanced and melded melting in layers on the palate.




A true delight to savor to bad the show is over!





Time has allowed this cigar to mature into a sublime experience. To be honest i don't think its even at the end of its journey. As it still offers plenty or power that in time. Will mellow into the wonderfully abundant layers of flavor that this cigar exhibits!

Once again thanks Bob for making this happen. The chance to smoke and review these , hard if not impossible to find cigars. Was a privilege i shall long remember. I hope everyone enjoyed these reviews. As much as i enjoyed doing them!

Re: HDM Pirimides EL 2003

Loved the review Tony. Such a splendid cigar, I love the smoothing coat of rich smoke. This experience is why we age Cuban cigars. Nothing else quite like it.

Now I'm a little sad these reviews are over!

Maybe we can try something again same time next year, who knows what we might find?

Thanks for your time and those lovely pictures.

Re: HDM Pirimides EL 2003

You are right, this is perhaps the most powerful HDM I've had to date as well.

A lot of problems in the world can be solved if everyone takes the time to relax and have a cigar.:hippie:

Re: HDM Pirimides EL 2003

Wow, awesome review on what looks to be an awesome cigar.

So my question is: who has a time machine and, if so, who wants to do a box split???
