Easily the best full-size Monster out of the box - meaning with no rest - the Hyde really blew me away last year.  The skinny version feels, again, like a concentrated version of the big one.  Leather, cream, pepper, and oak fire things off nicely.  Burn is spot-on and smoke is nice and aromatic.  Of all of the cigars in the Skinny set so far, this one is easily the closest to the original release.  I know that Tatuaje is polling smokers on which skinny should be added to regular production.  I already voted for the Wolf....my favorite of the pudgy set....but I may re-vote in favor of the Hyde.  A simply excellent and nicely complex cigar.  Highly recommended.
