History of HOYO DE MONTERREY

José Gener, originally a leaf grower and eventually the founder of one of the greatest Cuban cigars factories on the Island of Cuba, began producing the great Hoyo de Monterrey brand in 1960. The "Le Hoyo" series was added to the commercial cigar market in the mid-seventies. The name translates roughly as "the valley of Monterrey", which is a particularly fertile area of land in the "Vuelta Abajo" area of South west Cuba. Gener farmed in this valley for many years during the late 1800's. Known by all cigar connoisseurs due to its distinctive flavor, silky richness and complexity of taste, the Hoyo de Monterrey Double Corona is perhaps the most sought after and coveted Cuban cigar made. Some believe "gold" really does grow from the ground ! Produced in 7 factories, the Hoyo vitolas and the magnificent Hoyo Double Corona are made with only the finest Cuban tobacco.

When you find a cigar that you like make sure you are never left wanting. I remember a time when I was traveling in North Africa, I stopped at the city of Fez in Morocco. Fez is a wonderful city full of intricate sounds and colourful smells. I had planned to play golf with one of my fellow travelers but then I suddenly realized I had left my briefcase on the train. All my cigars where gone! Luckily one of the French men I met on the train was an aficionado he offered me a couple of Hoyo Double Coronas, a beauty of a stick! Crushed-cocoa mingled with coffee and leather, beautifully rounded in the smoke, this Hoyo made my day and in retrospect I was not that upset that I had lost my briefcase full of stogies! Since then I always have a Cabinet of 50 of these Double Coronas in my humidor. I never did get my briefcase back, I hope whoever picked it up made good use of the cigars I had in there!
