Hoyo De Monterrey Epicure No.1
The hoyo de monterrey epicure No.1 is my fishing cigar, its fresh, fruity and compliant. There is no fight with the Epicure No.1, unless its with the fish on the end of your line. And an afternoon can meander its way into early evening in utter gentleness with the help of these Gran Coronas. Colin, my long time school friend. And fishing buddy always puts his catches back when we are fishing on Lake Geneva. He says it is because he doesn’t eat fish but I think it is because the Epicure No.1’s are so ‘cool’ he relaxes. And doesn’t care about catching or not catching fish, the important thing is just to enjoy the moment you are in. For my part I would have to say the hoyo de monterrey Epicure No.1 is my favourite Corona Gorda on the market.

Hoyo De Monterrey Epicure No.1  – a medium bodied cigar, it has an even burn with a pleasant draw. It also has a lot of earthy flavours, such as hazelnut and coffee. A wonderful afternoon smoke. An elegant sophisticated cigar that tastes as good as it looks.

Hoyo de Monterrey owes its origin to the town of San Juan Martinez, which lies at the heart of the Vuelta Abajo region. Here the plantation, one of the great Vegas; Finas de Primera, can be reached through a gate on the town’s main square inscribed “Hoyo de Monterrey, Jose Gener 1860”. Jose Gener, a Catalan, first used the name on a brand of Habanos in 1865. The flavour of the blend found in Hoyo makes it an attractive choice for those who seek a delicate yet aromatic cigar that is lighter to the taste. This really is the perfect cigar for any occasion.
