The Hoyo de monterrey Double Corona is a long-love Honduran smoke renown for its bold, wholesome flavors. Featuring a medium-to-full body strength profile, it’s a throwback Habana-style cigar. Perfect after a long day or to share with buddies, the Double Corona is design with a 48 gauge ring and 6.75 inch body for a long, satisfying experience. If you’ve never tried one before, try a single or pack of 5; if you already love these golden beauties, we suggest you spring for the 25-count box.
Hoyo Doubles have built up quite the reputation over the years. Aside from some bad showings in 2001 and 2002, when Cuban cigar production as a whole was inconsistent, Hoyo de Monterrey Double Coronas have scored in the 90s in Cigar Aficionado and Cigar Insider blind tastings, outstanding on our 100-point-scale. Recent production Hoyo Doubles are all about medium-bodied flavors. They offer a combination of sweet spices, coffee notes and a touch of orange peel. These are sublime, rich, but not-too-powerful smokes that are perfect for whiling away an afternoon
Hoyo de Monterrey is a current pre-Revolution brand, established in 1865. The range comprises light strength cigars, using tobacco from the premium Vuelta Abajo region. A mighty cigar with a surprisingly subtle and creamy flavour, the Double Corona rocketed to stardom when the second issue of Cigar Aficionado rated a late ‘80s example 99 out of 100. Still a cigar to be reckoned with.
