Mark the beginning of this New Lunar Year’s festival in style.
Hoyo de Monterrey is one of the most prestigious brands of Habanos cigars. Its origin goes back to the plantation of the same name located in San Juan y Martínez*, in the heart of Vuelta Abajo, without a doubt one of the most famous plantations (fertile lands) symbolizing the richness of the Cuban lands where the considered world’s best tobacco is grown. All of the brand’s vitolas are made “Totalmente a Mano con Tripa Larga” – Totally Handmade with Long Filler -, with leaves from the region of Pinar del Río*, in the Vuelta Abajo area*.
The Primaveras de Hoyo de Monterrey celebrating the Year of the Ox vitola will have a limited production, but will be available in all markets. This vitola is presented in a special box of 18 Habanos made “Totalmente a Mano con Tripa Larga” – Totally Handmade with Long Filler – after a careful selection of the wrapper, filler and binder leaves from the prestigious Vuelta Abajo area, in the region of Pinar del Río*, Cuba. Its mild strength is one of the brand’s distinguishing features, and Hoyo de Monterrey Primaveras will be a good option for the most expert smokers of what is considered the world’s best tobacco.
