Established in 1865 by José Gener, a tobacco leaf grower in the Vualeta Abajo region, Hoyo de Monterrey is one of the greatest Cuban cigar factories on the Island of Cuba. Roughly translating to "Valley of Monterrey" this cigar is made from an extremely fertile area in the famed Vuelta Abajo region. Due to its silky richness, complexity of taste, great draw and balanced fragrance and flavor, some believe Hoyo de Monterrey Double Coronas to be the most sought after Cuban cigar ever made. Produced in 7 factories, Hoyo de Monterrey vitolas and the magnificent Hoyo de Monterrey Double Coronas are made with only the finest Cuban tobacco. The Hoyo Série was introduced about 1970 and presents a stronger, full bodied flavor. For a real treat, try the Hoyo de Monterrey Double Coronas or the Hoyo de Monterrey Épicure No. 2.
