About Hoyo De Monterrey Cigars
The Hoyo de Monterrey plantation is one of the Vegas de Primera – first class fields– where it’s soil and micro-climate lend to Hoyo de Monterrey flavour. The flavour of Hoyo de Monterrey’s blend make 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. Made using the Tripa Larga, Totalmente a Mano – long filler, totally hand made – technique, using filler and binder leaves from the Vuelta Abajo tobacco zone.
Woody and tea with light floral undertones. Delicious.
One of my all time favorite cigars. Perfect at any time of the day but especially good with a morning coffee. Great delicate start with abundant smoke production and increasing complexity. The strength builds quite nicely as you approach the end. I highly recommend keeping a couple of the Epicure No. 2s in the box though the price can be a bit hard to take.

This is now one of my favourite Cubans. I’ve recently ordered 3 tubos to try. All three were excellent.
