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..."

Great smokes, bought the pack of three and each was great. Quite light, nice ďanytimeĒ smoke

This was my first time smoking one of these. Feedback as a relatively new smoker: The flavour was great. It was quite mild with good, thick smoke. I donít have the palette to dissect the different flavours, but it was enjoyable throughout and didnít leave me with the harsh/dry back-of-the-mouth that I experience with some lesser brands The burn was inconsistent. It wasnít especially even, and I had to re-light twice. This may have been me, but itís not something Iíve encountered before with other cigars. Iíll 100% buy more, the pleasantness more than made up for the inconsistent burn.

As a first timer I herfed this stick over 50 minutes with my blood BOTL with some single malt to accompany. What a fine draw, kept its composure throughout with one small correction in the final third. Starts sweet and mild with increased leather and pepper on the retro, in the later stages. I had aged this in a sealed bag for a while saving for the right occasion and this really hit the mark. Would recommend if I had the faintest idea what I was talking about.

Awful....Just didnt stay lit , started to unravel and taste was nothing special from the little smoking time i actually had , this is about the 5th or 6th premium so called cuban i have bought and to be honest they all have been a waste of money , over priced and well overrated for me , the only good cuban i have had is the Vegueros Mananitas , which i see has increased in price , i thought cgarsltd were good for prices but i have now gone elsewhere , sorry cgarsltd
