Hoyo De MonterreyLong ago in the 1800s, the company was started that makes Hoyo de Monterrey cigars. They began their legacy in Cuba, but after the trade embargo was enacted, it was obvious that there would have to be a new venue from which to continue operations for the company. They moved the operations to Honduras in the late 1960s and have been there ever since. This is superb tobacco producing land that houses the Villazon, which is a tobacco processing factory. The estate and farm is overseen by none other than Estello Padron. Generations upon generations of experience and know-how go into these cigars. From the expertise that it takes to hand roll them to the trained eye that it takes to find the best tobacco leaves these are the professionals that know what it takes to make a great smoke.

In addition to their great offerings, they also produce cigarillos in two sizes which are the mini and the midi. These are not made by hand but instead made by use of equipment to mass produce them. These are more like the cigarettes that most people are familiar with instead of the cigars that they are famously known for all over the world.

They have several sizes under the Hoyo de Monterrey cigars name.

 They are as follows:

• 7" × 47

• 5⅝" × 42

• 5⅛" × 42

• 7⅝" × 49

• 4⅞" × 50

• 5⅝" × 46

• 5½" × 40

• 4⅛" × 50

There are two other lines that are produced for Hoyo de Monterrey cigars, and they are the series by the same name as the company with the addition of Edición Limitada Releases to the name. These are offered in much the same sizes and ring gauges as the above mentioned line.

The man who originally started the company had come from Spain to Cuba, and his name was Don José Gener y Batet. He kept the company going strong until he died in 1900 and his daughter took over. Even though the company was eventually sold to the group of Fernández, Palicio y Cía, the brands that came with the sale have remained popular lines even today. Hoyo de Monterrey cigars are recognized everywhere, and most aficionados stock them in their humidors.

Many of the smokes are billed as being full flavored with a rich tobacco taste as well as the fresh taste of wood, such as cedar. Some people even claim that there is a strong after taste left behind that is salty and harsh, but not bitter. However, the reviewers all gave the smokes extremely high ratings, as did the smoker’s club and online bloggers. Hoyo de Monterrey cigars are even better as they age, even though they are a wonderful treat to enjoy here and now according to the reviews.

If old world taste and style is what a smoker craves, then these are the sticks to reach for time after time. With the long history of tobacco growing and smoke making, this company knows how to make a great stick, and the aficionados are flocking to their favorite online cigar shops to stock up.
