Smooth and flavourful with a beautiful floral aroma. The Epicure Especiale ranks highly with knowledgeable smokers as well as the Double Corona. Always a classic.
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.
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 series is the Epicure line, but there is also a range of standard and slender gauge vitolas known as the Le Hoyo Series. Although Le Hoyos are increasingly hard to find, this series was recently revived somewhat with the more substantial Le Hoyo de San Juan.
All sizes are “totalmente a mano, tripa larga” -totally hand made, long filler.
Flavour Ranking: Light – Medium
