Since the 1960s, Hoyo de Monterrey has been produced for the American market in Danlí, Honduras, being one of the first brands to make use of Cuban-seed tobacco grown in Central America. It is this timeline that the brand seeks to pay homage to with Hoyo de Monterrey Epicure Selección, as it was this path that has led to one of the strongest tobacco-growing regions in the world today.
Hoyo de Monterrey Epicure Selección is geared for the purist enthusiast, boasting classically-styled bands, plain-wood boxes, and precise sizes throughout the collection. But these stats are merely compliments to the blend itself, which utilizes Cuban-seed leaves grown in Honduras throughout the wrapper, binder, and filler. The cigars are rolled at the famed HATSA factory in Danlí, where they have been hand-crafted for more than half a century, showcasing a medium to medium-plus intensity and standout flavors of roasted nuts, earth, black pepper, nutmeg, and creamy nougat through the finish.
