If there is a quintessential Cuban robusto, the Hoyo de Monterrey Epicure No. 2 probably holds that title. The size has been around for decades and is a favorite among fans of Cuban cigars for its delicate nuance, complexity and aroma. Not that this is a mild cigar. Subtlety and mild body aren't exactly the same thing, and the Epicure No. 2 is a case study in how a cigar can deliver layers of flavor while preserving delicacy and sophistication. The samples we smoked were from a February 2016 production date.

Traditionalists should be happy that not too much has changed in terms of presentation over the years. The Hoyo Epicure No. 2 cigars still come packaged in wooden slide-lid cabinets, which are ideal for air-flow during long-term aging. They still come bundled with a ribbon, and the cigars are even offered in 50-count cabinets as an option to standard boxes of 25. The only major change has been the bands. Up until about 10 years ago, many cigars in wooden cabinets were packaged nude. Habanos S.A. changed that by putting bands on all cigars, cabinet or otherwise. Those who wish to pay homage to the past can simply remove the labels with ease.
