DESCRIPTION: Hoyo de Monterrey en Cedros cigars are produced by General Cigar Co., which manufactures and markets handcrafted cigars for the premium market. General Cigar also produces Macanudo, Cohiba, Partagas, Excalibur, La Gloria Cubana and several other leading premium brands.
Hoyo de Monterrey Reposado en Cedros features three sizes, each packed in boxes containing 24 cigars. At 5 ¼” x 54, Sueño is a classic robusto that is available for a suggested retail price of $6.69 per cigar. The Liso is a 7” x 49 Churchill and carries an SRP of $6.99 per cigar. Marco, a figurado

After being handcrafted by a handpicked team of artisans at the General Cigar factory, each Reposado en Cedros cigar undergoes Inmersión, an innovative method of aging created at General Cigar’s Honduran cigar factory. With this technique, each cigar is enveloped in fragrant cedar and left to rest for an extended period of time. This week’s featured Reposado en Cedros is the 5.25-inch by 54 ring gauge Sueño Robusto.

DOC’S CIGAR POSTSCRIPT: Schrader Hispaniola
This postscript review is on the Schrader Hispaniola, which I first featured in Episode 262 of the Stogie Fresh 5 podcast back on Sunday, March 6, 2011. These cigars have now been resting in my humidor for 1 year, 7.5 months and I pulled out my last sample for this review.
