hoyo de monterrey epicure no. 2
Hoyo de Monterrey is an old-time Cuban-heritage brand handcrafted in Honduras. A complex blend of Nicaraguan, Honduran, and Cuban-seed long-fillers grown in the Dominican Republic lie inside a Connecticut binder. The blend is finished in your choice of an Ecuador Sumatra (Natural) wrapper or a Connecticut Broadleaf (Maduro). Nutty notes of leather, wood, grass, and spices tempt the palate with a touch of cocoa in a handful of traditional formats. A medium to full-bodied finish lingers on the palate with a zesty aftertaste. Add a box of Hoyo de Monterrey to your man cave when you need a recognizable Cuban-legacy brand you can hand out to your pals without breaking the bank.

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. Best hoyo de monterrey epicure no. 2!
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.
It lacks the strength of the Cohibas, but it is superior to the Upmanns. Mild flavours at first, blended nicely into a complex finish. Excellent smoke!
