Hoyo de Monterrey is one of the oldest Cuban cigar brands. The name is from the location of the plantage, as it is located in the Monterrey Valley. The brand is especially well-known for its rather mild and fine cigars and therefore is ideal for beginners, but also for all cigar lovers who prefer mild cigars. For those who prefer elegant and complex Habanos, the Hoyo de Monterrey is the right choice.
The founder of this popuar brand is the Spanish man José Gener. At the young age of 13, he had moved to the wide world, to Cuba. He found his accomodation and worked in the plantage of his uncle there. Twenty years later, enriched with much experience, he invented the La Escepcion - his first Cuban cigar. Since it sold well and had a lot of positive reactions, José founded the Hoyo de Monterrey brand in 1850 and bought a tobacco brew in the famous Vuelta Abajo Valley. Despite bad times in the 1920s and 1930s and a frequent change of ownership, the cigar brand succeded in holding and establishing itself. Nowadays, Hoyo de Monterrey holds a market share of 5% of the Cuban cigars, and is particularly suitable for beginners.
The Vuelta Abajo Valley in the west of Cuba is one of the most famous and best tobacco regions in the country, and probably in the world as well. Thanks to the perfect climate and a very nutirent-rich soil, tobacco could be harvested in the best quality. Other popular Cuban brands, such as Romeo y Julieta, Montecristo, H. Upmann and Cohiba also buy tobacco from Vuelta Abajo. The quality of the Monterrey cigars and their reputation are also due to Vuelta Abajo.
At Hoyo de Monterrey, you always get handmande longfillers. Fine, mild Cuban cigars are the reason that make the brand so special. Taste the Monterrey cigars rather than the gentler cigars. The Robusto format and the Epicure line are especially convincing with their very mild earthy and wooden aromas. The Le Hoyo models, on the other hand, are a little more powerful and are therefore particularly suitable for real Aficionads.
Our Onlineshop has the following formats:
The Coronation AT is assigned to the coronas of the Middle Class. Fruity earthy flavors mixed with a slightly leathery taste allow beginners and lovers a 40-minute smoking experience. In combination with a good rum or whiskey, the cigar promises you a nice evening.
