Shout out to Denny Hamlin for killin’ it at the Dayton 500! Bad break for Kenseth and Elliot this season. Daytona 500 has come and zipped past us but there’s still a way to fire-up up your weekends. I’m talking about the hyper-masculine essence rolled up in fine Nicaraguan earth jackets. The Hoyo de Monterrey goes well with the excitement of blaring engines. If you haven’t tried this little daddy then you’re definitely missing out!
The original Hoyo de Monterrey was the 1865 inspiration of José Gener, one of the most respected growers in Cuba’s famed Vuelta Abajo. An equally illustrious Hoyo de Monterrey tradition has been firmly established in Honduras under the masterful guidance of local cigar masters. Literally translated from Spanish to English as “the Hole of Monterrey” in reference to the concave terrain favored by growers of premium tobacco, the brand became extremely popular. With the British market spiking their demand, Gener’s factory successfully became one of the largest factories in Cuba. In 1900, Gener died in Spain and his daughter took over the business and it would stay in the family for another thirty years.
This full-flavored brand is dubbed the “espresso of cigars.” Hoyo De Monterrey cigars are crafted with tobacco cultivated in the richest Honduran soil. According to those who love Hoyo it’s said they are made “en la manera de los Indios” (the Indian way). This simply means that the cigar is produced by the sun, the wind, and the soil. Hoyo de Monterrey is loved because of its famously rich, strong, and creamy taste. Handmade in the Villazon factory of Honduras, Hoyos consist of a complex blend of Nicaraguan, Honduran, and Cuban seed Dominican filler and Connecticut binder. Aromatic and unapologetically straightforward, they’re the standard for all Honduran cigars.
These cigars are cured and aged by the elements. When you smoke a Hoyo de Monterrey cigar, you enjoy it as patrons did decades ago. The Hoyo full-bodied cigars are as deeply satisfying as they are authentically Honduran (just as Nascar is genuinely uh’Merican!)
