Length: 6 5/8″
Ring Gauge: 48
Strength: Light

SKU: N/A Category:


The Hoyo de Monterrey Primavera celebrates the 2021 Chinese New Year and is available in very limited quantities. It is only the second time a cigar has been released by Habanos S.A. to commemorate the festivities and follows the popular Romeo y Julieta Maravillas 8 in 2020 (Year of the Rat).

Each of these cigars is dressed with a unique foot band which are branded “Year of the Ox”. The cigars measure
6 5/8” (167mm) x 48 ring gauge and the size is referred to as a Hermosos No.1 in the factories of Cuba.

Hoyo de Monterrey owes its origin to the town of San Juan y Martinez, which lies at the heart of the Vuelta Abajo zone. Here the Hoyo de Monterrey plantation, one of the great Vegas de Primera, can be reached through a gate on the town’s main square inscribed “Hoyo de Monterrey. Jose Gener. 1960.”

“Hoyo” literally means “hole” and in this case describes the low-lying position of the plantation on the fertile banks of San Juan y Martinez river.  Jose Gener, a Spaniard from Tarragona, first used the name of his vega on a brand of Habanos in 1865.

The flavour of Hoyo de Monterrey’s blend makes it an attractive choice for those who seek a delicate yet aromatic Habano that is lighter to the taste but with great elegance and complexity.

Hoyo de Monterrey was the first brand to introduce a Petit Robusto in 2005, the 50 ring gauge size with a shorter length to suit those who like thicker formats, but do not always have the time to enjoy them.
