HOYO DE MONTERREY - Double Coronas
A definite classic among Cuban hand rolled cigars. Between the sweetest of the Cuban Double Coronas, this Hoyo seduces by its enduring vanilla and honey perfumes. It's packed with aromas of cinnamon and nutmeg yet is fresh and floral. It possesses a sweet and spicy quality, but smokes incredibly creamy. The burn is constant and fairly linear, with only a slight surge of power in the finish which reveles a deep earthiness and some dry woody notes.
Intensity of Taste: Light
Packaging: 25 Cigars
Hoyo de Monterrey owes its origin to the town of San Luis y Martinez, which lies at the heart of theVuelta 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.
