The only complain that could be made about this cigar come from very seasoned aficionados who would say it might not be strong enough.
As all vitolas from Hoyo de Monterrey this Doble Coronas (Double Coronas) is extremely well constructed. It has a smooth oily wrapper, a good draw and strong aromas. Every modern Habano has somehow been influenced by this amazing cigar, but it is in a league of its own. It is softer in touch and creamier than the Partagas Lusitanias and the Double Coronas from Punch, it appears also bigger when in hand.
