Regal’s brand of the month for May 2020 is Hoyo De Monterrey Cigars. We summarise everything you need to know about this historic Cuban cigar brand that consistently produces high quality cigars with complex and interesting flavours.
The history of Hoyo De Monterrey Cigars
Hoyo De Monterrey Cigars was registered as a cigar line in Cuba in 1865 by José Gener, a Spaniard who emigrated to Cuba at the age of 13 and worked on his uncle’s plantation for 20 years before opening his own factory. He then acquired one of the best tobacco farms in Vuelta Abajo and the Hoyo De Monterrey brand was born.
Translated to English as “the Hole of Monterrey”, the name refers to the concave terrain favoured by growers of premium tobacco in Cuba.
The Gener family sold the cigar brand in 1931 and after a few transfers in ownership it became a Cuban state owned tobacco company in 1959, and is still a globally marketed Cuban brand today.
