Hoyo de Monterrey owes its origin to the town of San Juan y Martínez , 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 Martínez river. José Gener, a Spaniard from Tarragona, first used the name of his vega on a brand of Habanos in 1865.
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.

A well-made Robusto, delivers sweet notes of brown sugar, raisin and cocoa, all buttressed by a woody core, coconut and cashew can be enjoy in the finish.
