Smoking Time: 30 Minutes 

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

A fairly new addition to the Hoyo range. It was added to the brand in 2004 and was probably one of the best new cigars produced in that year. Full of flavour, spice, rich and sweet. The cigar lasts around 40 minutes and have a great flavour and complexity. Definitely a cigar to be smoked with at least 6 months age.


88 / 100

"...While there was some inconsistency noted in the draw and combustion, this short cigar is salty and nutty with intermittent notes of orange peel, grass and dry woods..."

Fantastic small Cuban. All the flavour in a smaller package, great little smoke when you dont have the time or patience for a full robusto. A staple smoke in my rotation.

Fantastic cigar! This is by far one of my favourite smokes to date, it had an easy draw, delicious flavoures thoughout and was light a sweet. I would highly recommend it, especially, to anyone just starting out.

Ive had one of these cigars sitting in my humidor for a couple of months. With great expectations from all of the positive reviews I decided to settle down to enjoy it today. What an anticlimax it was! The initial lighting was as good as expected but I struggled beyond belief to keep it lit and had to re-light a few times. In the few puffs where it was on song I could certainly taste the sweet nuttiness reported by others and the justification of their positive reviews. For me, the whole experience was marred by the poor burn. I appreciate Im fairly new to the world of cigars but this was my first experience of such a battle to enjoy a smoke! Sorry Hoyo, I would like to give you a more positive score but cant in this instance.

Smells like a proper Cuban cigar, hay,nutty, barn yard notes as they say . Beautiful cigar , creamy smoke great burn all the way down . Ive been back smoking cigars quite regularly now and have to say this is my fav, go to cigar . Brilliant
