Established in 1865, the name roughly means "valley of Monterrey," a particularly fertile site in the Vuelta Abajo.
The brand offers a lighter flavour and a range of sizes, the largest of which are much celebrated. The Le Hoyo series cigars was introduced about 1970 and presents a stronger flavour.
Hoyo De Monterrey Epicure No.2 Reserva are available now. These iconic Robusto sized (124” x 50) cigars from Habanos S.A’s much loved brand Hoyo De Monterrey are definitely not to be missed. The cigars are only available in extremely limited numbers with just 5,000 numbered boxes containing 20 cigars produced for the global market.
The Hoyo de Monterrey Grand Epicure (55 ring gauge x 130 mm length) is one of the three Limited Editions released by Habanos in 2013. This exclusive & limited vitola keeps the flavour of Hoyo de Monterrey's blend. Definitely an attractive cigar for connoisseurs who seek a delicate yet aromatic Habano that is lighter in tobacco taste but of great elegance...
James Suckling's Cigar of the Year for 2016. A definite classic among Cuban cigars. This Double Corona is a shining example of aesthetic beauty and artisan's labor. Complex, rich and balanced, the smoke of these Double Coronas will seduce you and take you on a journey of delicate taste.
The 4th best cigar in the world according to Cigar Aficionado magazine. The cigar is very, very rich, with varied notes that include coffee, earth and cocoa powder, and a touch of graham cracker. It’s complex, but not too strong, making it a very approachable Cuban.
Winner of Cigar Inspector's Cigar of the Year 2014 award, the Hoyo de Monterrey Epicure De Luxe construction is magnificent, the flavors and aromas are delicious and complex, and you will especially enjoy them if you are a fan of black pepper.
Classic robusto with an excellent burn. With a smooth strength, it has an intense tobacco taste, blended with cocoa, cinnamon and dried fruits.
A fantastic cigar, and very different to the Epicure No.2. Mild and earthy beginning. Evolves progressively into cream, wood, bit of spice and a hint of mushroom.
