Hi, I'm New Here & Review Hoyo De Monterey Rothschild

Been Lurking for awhile. I enjoy the forums and it seems everyone is a great group of folks..Been smoking Cigars on and off since I was of legal age and just recently started smoking regularly again. I prefer medium to full bodied sticks in a Robusto size and Petit Coronas...but I still have a lot to learn. I have enjoyed reading Texan to the End's reviews, so i'll do mine in his style (sort of) without stealing his trademarks - thanks for the inspiration! LOL.

Hoyo De Monterey Rothschild
4.5 - Ring 50
Origin - Honduran
Wrapper Light to Medium Brown Ecuador Sumatran
Price $6.99
Pre Light - Very Grassy, Earthy Smell
Draw - Perfect (for me)


First off, the wrapper seemed a bit loose and was coming detached in places. The Stick seemed a bit dry, but the other cigar (review that one later) that I picked up from the same humidor was perfect.

First inch or two had a spicy flavor and an annoying metallic taste. Burn was even and the ash was solid and white. Smoke had a bluish tint.

Mid Cigar - Nice Spicy/Peppery taste and a bit of nut flavor, but that annoying Metalic taste would come back now and again. The Metallic flavor spoiled the good parts IMO.

Finish - Had a great burst of citrus flavor toward the end, but only lasted a couple of puffs...followed up by that metallic flavor returning. Got thru the metal taste to a nice creamy flavor only to have the metal flavor return (again). Ash turned dark gray and flaky.

Overall - Cigar held together pretty well, despite the wrapper. Good flavors in this cigar, but the metal flavor was irritating. I'll give another one a try someday, but not worth the price In my Humble Opinion.


Looking forward to reading and learning more about Cigars and getting to know all of you!

Thanks,

Scott

Now THAT'S what I'm talkin' about! The man comes right in with his intro AND gives his first review at the same time. Way to go Scott, I think you're gonna fit right in with the gorillas around here.
