Hoyo de Monterrey owes its origin to the town of San Luis y Martinez which lies at the heart of the Vuelta Abajo tobacco region. Here the Hoyo de Monterrey plantation, 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 Martinez river.
José Gener, a Catalan, 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.
The best-known sizes are the Double Corona and the Epicure No. 1 and 2 but there is also a range of standard and slender gauge vitolas known as the Le Hoyo Series.
All sizes are "totalmente a mano, tripa larga" -totally hand made, long filler.
