Hoyo de Monterrey is one of the world’s most enduring cigar brands. After the 1969 trade embargo, the company divided. The Honduran-made sticks we carry are created under the watchful eye of cigar master Estello Padron. Drawing on the best of the tobacco crops from multiple nations, including Nicaragua, the D.R., Honduras and Ecuador, many smokers agree that these cigars surpass the quality of the cigars currently coming out of Cuba under the same name. Expect a creamy, well-balanced smoke every time you light up a Hoyo de Monterrey.
