Hoyo de Monterrey

Hoyo de Monterrey owes its origin to the town of San Juan y Martinez, which lies at the heart of the Vuelta Abajo tobacco 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. José  Gener. 1860’.

‘Hoyo’ literally means a ‘hole’ and in this case describes the low-lying position of the plantation on the fertile banks of San Juan y Martinez river. José Gener, a Spaniard from Tarragona, first used the name of his vega on a brand of Havanas in 1865.

The flavour of Hoyo de Monterrey’s blend makes it an attractive choice for those who seek a delicate yet aromatic Havana that is lighter to the taste but with great elegance and complexity.

The brand is renowned for its Double Corona and for the prestigious Epicure series, the No.1 and No.2, to which the longer  Epicure  Especial was added in 2008. There  is  also a range of standard and slender gauge vitolas known as the Le Hoyo Series.

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.

All sizes are Tripa Larga, Totalmente a Mano – long filler, totally hand made using filler and binder leaves from the Vuelta Abajo tobacco zone.

Flavour: Light


DOUBLE CORONA

VITOLA: Prominente 
RING GAUGE: 49 
LENGTH:  7 5/8 inches
A mighty cigar with a surprisingly subtle and creamy flavour. It rocketed to stardom when the second issue of Cigar Aficionado rated a late ‘80s example 99 out of 100. Still a cigar to be reckoned with.


CHURCHILL - VINTAGE 1999

VITOLA: Julieta No.2 
RING GAUGE: 47
LENGTH: 7 inches 
A cigar which, along with the Double Corona, bears one of the most majestic of all Havana cigar bands. An impressive symbol of success with a delicate flavour to please the educated palate. Now discontinued, but we have some stocks remaining.


EPICURE No.1

VITOLA: Corona Gorda 
RING GAUGE: 46 
LENGTH: 5 5/8 inches 
A long standing favourite amongst the admirers of this classic, heavyish gauge size. Lighter tasting than the Punch Punch or Cohiba Siglo IV, but plenty of fragrant complexity nonetheless.


EPICURE ESPECIAL

VITOLA: Gordito 
RING GAUGE: 50
LENGTH: 5 1/2 inches
Introduced as the top of the Epicure line in 2008, this extra- length robusto delivers the classic light-flavoured elegance of the Epicure No.2 for an additional five eighths of an inch.


EPICURE No.2

VITOLA: Robusto 
RING GAUGE: 50
LENGTH: 4 7/8 inches
The robusto of choice for many cigar epicureans. Formerly presented without any band, now it sports no less than two, so its identity is clear.


PETIT ROBUSTO

VITOLA: Petit Robusto 
RING GAUGE: 50
LENGTH: 4 inches
Perhaps this cigar would have been better named Epicure No.3 as its presentation and style of taste  are identical to the Epicure 1 & 2. Introduced in 2004, it was a timely anticipation of what smokers would face with smoking bans.


HOYO DE MONTERREY – Le Hoyo Series


DE SAN JUAN

VITOLA: Geniales
RING GAUGE: 54
LENGTH: 5 7/8 inches
The Hoyo De Monterrey Le Hoyo De San Juan is the latest addition to the Hoyo de Monterrey brand. Not only a new cigar, but the biggest ring gauged currently produced in the “Le Hoyo” series. It holds the same larger “new” bands as the ‘de Luxe’ and ‘Connoisseur A’ with its name embossed underneath the Hoyo De Monterrey logo. The new release sports earthy and floral flavours, with a creamy texture and notes of wood and leather.


DU ROI - VINTAGE 2014

VITOLA: Corona
RING GAUGE: 42 
LENGTH: 5 5/8 inches
Once a match for Davidoff’s Chateau Latour size, although lighter in taste and boasting a distinguished aroma. As with so many classic Coronas, this vitola has been discontinued in Havana. Now discontinued, but we have some stocks remaining.


DU DEPUTÉ

VITOLA: Trabuco
RING GAUGE: 38
LENGTH: 4 3/8 inches
An elegant small cigar with  a decent 38 ring gauge that makes it the perfect morning smoke. For many years it was the only cigar of this size in the Havana portfolio until it was joined by the Montecristo Open Junior in 2009.


DU MAIRE

VITOLA: Entreactos 
RING GAUGE: 30
LENGTH: 4 inches
The size name means ‘between acts’, so here we have size designed to satisfy the theatre going smoker during the interval; these days, of course, on the pavement outside.
