HOYO DE MONTERREY
The name Hoyo de Monterrey comes from the place San Juan y Martinez, which is located in the heart of the tobacco region Vuelta Abajo. The Hoyo de Monterrey plantation, one of the great Vegas Finas de Primera, can be reached through a gate from the main square of the town. The inscription “Hoyo de Monterrey. José Gener. 1860” is attached to it.
‘Hoyo’ literally means ‘valley’ and in this case describes the deep location of the plantation on the fertile banks of the San Juan y Martinez river.
José Gener, a Spaniard from Catalonia, was the first to use the name of his Vega as a brand name for Habanos in 1865.
The taste of the Hoyo de Monterrey makes it a popular choice for all those who are looking for a fine but aromatic Habano that is light in taste but convinces with great elegance and complexity.
