Description Ref # HO1000

Length: 5 5/8"
Ring Gauge: 46 
Strength: Light
Packaging: Cabinet of 25 Cigars 

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

Despite minor construction flaws, an absolute delight to smoke. Very complex, full bodied, even burn/draw. Fantastic spice and cocoa, with a finish you much experience. One of the very best. written by Michael

One of the best drawing Cubans I have ever had. Starts out with lots of smoke and light flavor of honey. Grows into some leathery flavor mid way and finishes slightly spicey with some almond hints. Darn near burned my finger tips trying to smoke all of it. A truly superb smoke! written by Kizersoesa
