Hoyo de Monterrey Cigars: Review and Price in Canada

If you ask Terry Pomerantz what he thinks of Hoyo de Monterrey cigars, he will answer in a heartbeat: “Hoyo de Monterrey? Oh those are my favorite cigars!”

Hoyo de Monterrey: A Brief History

Hoyo de Monterrey cigars are truly unique, if only because they are the only Cuban cigars to be named after their tobacco plantation.

The Moterrey Valley (Hoyo) plantation is located in the Vuelta Abajo region, where the best cigar tobaccos in the world are grown.

All of the tobacco leaf types that are used to make a Hoyo de Monterrey cigar are from this valley.

The Hoyo de Monterrey brand was founded by a Catalan by the name of Jose Hener –owner of the tobacco plantations- and his partner Miguel Janet, in 1865.

What Terry Thinks of Hoyo de Monterrey Cigars

“From mild to medium-strength, Hoyo de Monterrey cigars can be enjoyed with your morning coffee, after lunch while relaxing, or in the evening while daydreaming… or planning…” says Terry Pomerantz with a touch of irony.
