Hoyo de Monterrey owes its origin to the town of San Juan y Martinez, which lies at the heart of the Vuelta Abajo zone. Here the Hoyo de Monterrey plantation, one of the great Vegas de Primera, can be reached through a gate on the town's main square inscribed "Hoyo de Monterrey. Jose Gener. 1960."

"Hoyo" literally means "hole" and in this case describes the low-lying position of the plantation on the fertile banks of San Juan y Martinez river.  Jose Gener, a Spaniard from Tarragona, first used the name of his vega on a brand of Habanos in 1865. 

The flavour of Hoyo de Monterrey's blend makes it an attractive choice for those who seek a delicate yet aromatic Habano that is lighter to the taste but with great elegance and complexity. 

Hoyo de Monterrey was the first brand to introduce a Petit Robusto in 2005, the 50 ring gauge size with a shorter length to suit those who like thicker formats, but do not always have the time to enjoy them.

Tasting Notes

Excellent, oily, robust and with powerful flavour and aroma. This is a great smoke. The draw, burn and taste are very good.


90 / 100

"...This large double corona is made with a three-seam cap and tawny wrapper. The draw is firm but still imparts a nutty, floral smoke that develops notes of toffee and baking spices..."

have been trying various cubans- after much enjoyment how found the hoyo de monterrey range the best without any doubt. For a long relaxing smoke the double coronas is an excellent choice - mild but not weak, great draw from start to finish - expensive but great value!

Without doubt the worst cigar Ive ever smoked. It was an effort to keep it going, absolutely nothing relaxing or enjoyable about it. Terrible burn, terrible draw, went out without near constant smoking which destroyed the flavours. Gave up just over half way and lit and immeasurably better RyJ Churchill.

Big boy Doubles like this need time and respect. A stogie to smoke when you got a lovely summer day is perfect. After a few very nasty hot humid days in the Uk we were gifted with a warm but slightly cooler day. The day had a nice cool breeze, warm but cooler and comfortable. I sat in my back garden and lit this bad boy up. The cigar started light with a slightly creamy, oaky taste. Second third it came into its own; more cream, caramel and a slight sweetness that I would describe as a hint of strawberry. One hour in and I realised the cigar had more kick than I thought slightly overdosing on nicotine I needed to slow down some. I took it easier and spread it out with more gaps between draws and walked up and down some. I debated aspects of life, thought bout things in a relaxed pleasant way, solutions to problems work. The final third was a surprise. Most cigars gain intensity at this point but the intensity was not overwhelming. I don’t usually usually enjoy the final third of many cigars but in this case it may have been the most enjoyable part of the cigar the contrast of the tobacco strength and increased complexity with more of that nice creamy strawberry sweetness coming through. Smoking with bout half an inch left, smoke time was 1 hour 40, drinking with a pint and half of Italian larger. Very good Stogie.

Were on lockdown so if you havent got a few of these in your humidor your in trouble... Its a Cuban ready in a couple of years, (when we buy then or thereabouts...). As with the RyJ Churchill a good early smoke at a relatively good price*... Complexity sweet wood milder than most, with its own little punch... Just buy! it is silly not too! * the taxman with PO customs has taketh my limited here but should maintain... Or well all be broke!

Reviewed by Joe Gellman C.GARS Ltd allows me to be a chartered libertine in writing these cigar tasting reviews. They never know just what I might say about one of their cigars but have promised to print whatever my opinions might be; brave folks that they are. Not to worry, C.GARS, this is going to be a nice review. "Gorblimey" if this cigar is not one of the greatest made. Measuring a staggering 7 5/8 x 49 (178 x 18.65), the cigar is a impressive item. Let me take you on a trip through this cigar. The oils on this wrapper make it a delight to the eye. A deep, dark, rich, chestnut brown color immediately makes you feel like hiding the riches from prying eyes and salivating mouths and telling your amigos to bog off. There are no veins on the wrapper and, from cap to foot, you cannot but notice it's smooth construction. The cap is almost too perfect to cut. The foot is as even as could measurably be, and looking end up, the tobacco leaf is tightly and symmetrically rolled. The cigar is firm yet yielding just a bit, and there were no soft spots to be found. I had laid this selection down for 4 months and every now and again took a loving look, wondering when I would break down and smoke them. Now was the time to be bold, and thankful am I that I made the decision. There was a definite sweetness when placing the cigar in my mouth and, not to blaspheme Gerard's tasting notes, none of the acidity or harshness he finds in this cigar. The cigar has a very subtle aroma not unlike newly opened Orange blossoms, perhaps best described as delicate. Well, I mention this since our Orange tree has recently bloomed and I am reminded of that fresh aroma which wafts by just as I step from my front door. Having been to the western regions of Vuelta Abajo, I can just imagine Jose' Gener selecting the leaves for this vitola. When you visit Cuba make certain to go there on a clear, warm day and drink in the special aromas of the earth and leaf... you will understand this cigar better, then. The cigar lights well, even, and presents the smoker with abundant rich, thick, gray fog. There is an immediate taste of amber or, more precisely, honey-vanilla. The aromas are not that different from the taste which makes this a much sought after cigar. This was the easiest cigar to do a tasting on; no surprises here. An even, cool burn, a hint of woodiness which is wrapped in light flowery sweet scents. The ash was steady, firm, and very dark. When placed in the ashtray and tested, the ash was crisp and airy-like. There was much time on this cigar and I would not suggest it when there is not the time to enjoy it, leisurely. One's first impression of this cigar is that it is going to be quite full-bodied. This is not the case and, thus, is not a cigar to light up after a heavy meal. I started the day off with this cigar, at 7:30 a.m., and was not disappointed in my timing. Smoking the cigar made me linger over several cups of Mocha-Java coffee. I made time to read the Times, watch passing nubile Beverly Hills ladies, and think of earlier years when the passing day seemed to contain more hours for leisure. Towards the last 2 inches of the cigar I noticed a deeper taste of honey and earth developing which crescendoed in a blast of flavors previously described. At 4 p.m. I left the office for another DC experience with some stronger Kenya blend coffee. The experience was the same as in the early morning. I went home wanting more, not because the tastes did not linger, but due to the delightful smoking experience I had, and the way in which the day seemed to float by.
