Subtlety is the highlight of Hoyo de Monterrey’s Epicure No 2, available in a cab of 50. Don’t mistake subtlety for lack of flavor. This cigar delivers a delicately layered smoking experience and is praised among cigar aficionados as one of the greatest robustos ever produced.

Hoyo de Monterrey Epicure No 2 Overview

The Epicure No 2 is the last cigar to go into production from the famed house, and over a century of experience and refinement has gone into creating this exceptional stick. 

It features a 50 ring gauge and a moderate 4.9” length, providing a pleasant weight in your hand and making it ideal as a quick smoke.

All tobacco is sourced from the brand’s plantation in the lush Vuelta Abajo region, and the long filler is superbly packed to produce billowing tendrils of aromatic smoke.  


Smoking a Hoyo de Monterrey Epicure No 2

The draw can feel a little tight in the beginning but opens up and intensifies the flavors after the first inch. These extraordinary hand-wrapped cigars offer a consistent burn that requires very few touch-ups, providing you with a fast, fuss-free smoking experience. 

The mouthfeel is buttery rather than oily, and the first third offers a nuanced blend of vanilla and cedar, with a touch of black pepper. As you progress through the second third, the creamy smoke lingers on your palate but is joined by mild herbal and earth notes. Then there is classic Cuban robustness in the cigar’s final inch. 

Cigar Value

Compared with other popular Cuban robustos on the market, such as those produced by Cohiba, the Hoyo de Monterrey Epicure No 2 is well worth the investment. It’s an everyday smoke but far from an everyday experience. 

Hoyo de Monterrey Epicure No 2 Experience

Connoisseurs love the Epicure No 2 for its smooth, layered flavor profile. Still, this same easy-smoking quality also makes it suitable for beginners looking to broaden their horizons. The short length and estimated 40-minute smoke time make it an excellent cigar for just about anytime, anywhere, anyday.
