Hoyo de Monterrey Epicure No.2 Reserva are available now. These iconic Robusto sized (4 7/8 x 50) cigars from Habanos SA's much loved brand Hoyo de Monterrey are definitely not to be missed. The cigars are only available in extremely limited numbers with just 5,000 numbered boxes containing 20 cigars produced for global market.
All the tobacco used to produce these remarkable cigars was harvested in 2012. Then, once graded, air cured and fermented, have been allowed to age in bales for three years before being presented to the torcedor (cigar roller) to make the final masterpiece.
The Reserva Series features different packaging and a black and silver band. Another difference from the standard release Epicure No. 2's is that the Hoyo and Epicure bands have been combined in to 1 band, rather than 2 separate bands. I imagine this is so that the cigar isn't "triple banded" as that could be a bit odd.
The Hoyo de Monterrey Epicure No. 2 Reserva Cosecha 2012 was announced at the 2016 Festival del Habano and has had cigar aficionados eagerly waiting for the official release. If you are able to stock up on these now, it would be a good idea as they won't last long.
