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!

92 / 100

"...Floral and nutty, this well-made cigar also shows notes of leather and toasted almond before a sweet, honeyed finish. Elegant and balanced..."

A nice experience, draw was good producing lots of creamy smoke, but burn was a bit uneven and needed touching up a bit, but still produced a long strong ash. Flavours were sweet and nutty and with a little pepper. It burnt slowly and lasted over an hour and fifteen.

This cigar is never going to put hairs on your chest, thats for sure. A very mild smoke, which will suite the American market, Im sure. Having reached about no. 10 of my box, I must say that the consistency is more than satisfactory. Draw.... 9 Construction... 8. Some , but very few touch ups. Favour..8.....Very mild throughout. Some complexity in the final third. There are other great cigars out there which give more bangs for buck, Try Ramon Allones specially selected , Bolivar Royal coronas or Partagas Series D No.4 Overall, a pleasant smoke with consistency. Final thought. You have to buy a box to determine how good a cigar actually is. One off purchases tell you nothing . Cuban cigars are great when you can ascertain the quality in a box. This requires patience and a deep pocket.
