Ring Gauge: 50 
Strength: Light
Packaging: Cabinet of 50 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

It lacks the strength of the Cohibas, but it is superior to the Upmanns. Mild flavours at first, blended nicely into a complex finish. Excellent smoke!

I finished this stick just under an hour. The construction and draw is excellent. Creamy, sweet and woody. A fantastic morning smoke. I will be buying more of no2.

Nothing more to say than what has been said already its a quality stick . The one Im smoking was a gift from a friend which I saved until now. Smoking it on the balcony in Crete in with a Metaxa and a sea breeze. Perfect.

Truly an amazing cigar! Without a shed of doubt in the top 5 robustos in the world, due to its consistency alone. Iíve smoked hundreds of these so take it from me itís a classic. Great flavours of cream, milk chocolate with a some sweet apple and just a hint of cinnamon. It really is a tasty stick. The burn has been even in the majority Iíve had. Great with coffee and great with a single malt also. Itís that versatile. Flavour tends to die out in some cases in the final third but it isnít unpleasant as you tend to get that sort of nice Cuban tobacco taste. But as a whole itís a great smoke.

This cigar was my first true love as a newbie herfer, way back at the turn of the millennium. Over the years I have smoked many fine cigars and some considerably stronger. However I always come back to the Epi 2 a few times a year and I rekindle that flame I had all those years ago. This afternoonís one has been in the humidor for a year or so, having been supplied by CGars it is in perfect condition. As always the quality of construction is excellent and a year in the humidor has only added to the subtle complexity of this wonderful cigar. I canít say enough about how good this cigar is, so Iím not going to, but I urge anyone who hasnít tried one to buy one now!
