San Juan y Martinez is a small town in Vuelta Abajo (the main source of tobacco for Habanos) which gives it name to the district that is protected as a Denomination of Origin (DOP). 

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

The new heavy ring gauge cigars joining the Le Hoyo range not only take its name from this district but also only use Seco and Ligero leaves in the blend that are grown there which gives the cigars a rich finish whilst maintaining a refined light aroma that is a character of the Hoyo de Monterrey brand. 


92 / 100

"...A plump, well-made smoke with a veiny wrapper. Its primary notes of almonds and wood take on some earthy, mineral qualities before a sweet, fruity finish..."

Where can I start about this cigar? I could wax lyrical about the coffee and cream taste and the perfect fill and the delightful colour of the wrapper etc etc but it is much easier to say that since reading that this new ring gauge stick was to be added to the HDM range, I grew excited. I like the larger gauge and love HDMs, so add them together and I was champing at the bit. When C.Gars announced that they now had them in stock I ordered on the first day. I will just say that this cigar has gone straight to the top of my personal hit-list. Magnificent, with subtle changes right down to the final 1/5th. Highly, seriously recommended Like an angel crying on your tongue.
