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.

I'm sure I have mentioned before that this is my favourite in the 'Du' series, this cigar most infatuating because of its quirky dimensions. Petit Coronas are very hard to build, they need intricute construction and a fathomless knowledge on the art of ventilation in limited space. Indeed, the smaller the cigar the quicker it heats up and the harder the puro is to control. Du Prince has natural oxygenation and outstanding Petit Corona dimensions, a great testament to the art of the Torcedor. This quick burning Hoyo is sweet and boisterously peppery, ideal for a pick me up in the middle of the afternoon. An ode to the Petit Corona plays on in the smoke of this most Cuban of cigars!
