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..."

Really enjoyed this smoke, I bought it on the recommendation of a member of staff and it really is a very good quality cigar. Smooth and creamy flavours, the burn was consistent and balanced and the ash held on firmly. Slightly smaller than the usual robusto, I bought this from the Chester shop, the only dissapointing element is that its 4 cheaper online so one always has to ask for the cheaper price if at the shop. At the web price its certainlly a real bargain.

Great cigar, that lasted me a good 40-50 minutes. Easy and smooth draw. Mild/Medium flavour and strength in my opinion. It got a bit hot towards the end, but that was expected when smoking it to the nub.

A superb cigar, very smooth from the first puff to the last. The taste was very nutty like almonds with hints of leather. I thoroughly enjoyed this cigar as Im usually put off by the length of other cigars with this ring gauge as they take over an hour to smoke but this one can be enjoyed in 45min.

Excellent construction and great draw. Lasted me for ages about 50 minutes. Delightful flavour from start to (fingertip burning) finish. Burns a little hot. Overall, very good. written by Thomas
