The Hoyo de Monterrey Double Coronas is the king of the brand, not because it is the largest one among the Hoyo cigars, but also for its band, which differs from all the others used to dress up the Hoyo de Monterrey cigars. In the past, other cigars of the brand, such as the notorious Churchills and Particulares, featured this band, but nowadays, the Double Coronas is the only one.
The cigars are wrapped up in a Colorado leaf. The filling is generous, and the overall construction is good. The cigars appear to be sligthly box-pressed.
