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

An easy draw and relaxing smoke, spicy, medium strong flavours but not too much pepper. A well enjoyed smoke.


88 / 100

"...Covered in a matte natural wrapper, this corona draws well, delivering sweet wood and earth flavours that are balanced out with sweet cocoa notes. A pleasant, medium-bodied cigar..."

Just received 3 of these and am really disappointed with the first one. It had an impossible draw even after using the draw tool on it. Having to stab a 16 Havana its entire length several times is just not on. I couldnt really judge the flavour at all, what little smoke I got from this cigar was overheated due to the extreme puffing that was required. I gave up half way through. I just hope the others will be better or that will be the last H de M for me.

This turned up with a split foot and covered in mould (I know the later isn't the end of the world but that's a first from Cgars and I have spent a few quid here). Only my second Hoyo ever, I tried the Hermosos on Hols (again from Cgars) and loved it. Ok so ignoring the fact that it looked a little sad I was still looking forward to it. First half was enjoyable if a little unexciting but I liked it. Unfortunately I couldn't keep the second half alight long enough to enjoy it. Bit annoying but hey ho they are a natural/hand made product. I would try one again, of course, but can't say a lot else really. Ah the highs and lows of cigar smoking.... Reply from C.Gars

Hi, I am terribly sorry you were not 100% satisfied with your cigar, I can assure you though that it would not have been mould though. The likelihood is that what you were seeing was in fact plume, quite harmless and shows that the cigar is aging well. If you ever receive a cigar you are not 100% happy about, we do offer a no quibble return policy, simply pop it back in the post and we will exchange it for you no problem. If you need any help or information, please contact me on james@cgarsltd.co.uk. Kind regards, James - C.Gars Ltd

Best Cuban Ive smoked in a while. Earthy,coffee,cocoa,leather and a touch of sweet cinnamon rounded out this extremely complex delight. Full flavored and delicious. written by Michael

This is a true corona of the shade, its pronounced spiciness distinguishes it from lighter variations on this size. written by Pete
