The Hoyo de Monterrey Grand Epicure is a stately Robusto that impresses all cigar lovers and connoisseurs. An elegant tobacco blend and hand-rolled consistency deliver a divine smoke for more special occasions. 

Hoyo de Monterrey Grand Epicure Overview

The Hoyo de Monterrey Grand Epicure is a limited edition run of Robusto cigars released in 2013. The 55 ring gauge 5.1” Montesco-format cigars are produced in small batch quantities to preserve quality and consistency. 

This attention to detail and careful manufacturing shows in the final result, which is an undeniably complex, yet balanced, medium-bodied smoke that embodies everything the brand stands for. 

Smoking a Hoyo de Monterrey Grand Epicure

The dark chocolate-colored wrapper has a slight sheen of oil. Subtle veins and bumps do not detract from the overall appearance. The weighty feel of the cigar suggests the depth of flavor lying underneath. 

The aroma of the wrapper is reminiscent of cacao and earth, with a slight touch of leather. Unlike many other cigars from the brand, the first third of the Grand Epicure is surprisingly bold with bitter espresso, cedar, and dark chocolate.

There are nut and butter notes adding to the coffee scent throughout the middle third, and the final third of the cigar offers spicy black pepper. 

Cigar Value

These cigars are only available as a limited release and they come with a hefty price tag. Yet, if you want a Habano that exemplifies the elegant blending of the Hoyo de Monterrey house, the Grand Epicure is a real treat. 

Hoyo de Monterrey Grand Epicure Experience

Some aficionados still prefer the smoothness of the original Epicure No 2, although this may also be due to the price point. 

The Grand Epicure offers an intensity that smokers find to be a pleasing compromise between a medium-bodied and full-bodied blend. The limited-edition release and beautiful presentation make these a wonderful gift. They are certainly cigars to savor and keep back for special occasions.
