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

This is a medium bodied cigar, it has an even burn with a very nice draw. It also has lots of earthly flavors, like hazelnut and coffee. A wonderful afternoon smoke.


91 / 100

"...Initial puffs of this tawny-coloured cigar are nutty and floral with clear notes of baking spices. The smoke becomes salty before showing its caramel sweetness..."

Complex, medium to full bodied cigar with excellent draw and burn qualties. Hints of spice, chocolat and leather. written by Thomas Coakley USA

Another excellent smoke. Im still undecided as to whether it merits as much praise as the No2 but not far off. Have had a few that are tight and can go bitter suprisingly early. However, M has said that there was a number of off batches floating around a year ago. Just take his advice on choice of year (if you have a choice). written by asgard

A corona gorda of light to medium strength and a somewhat constrained flavor profile that can border on being a bit bitter. written by ca
