Hoyo de Monterrey has announced the release of a new cigar, the Hoyo de Monterrey Epicure Selección, a new cigar collection that pays homage the country where the brand was produced for more than 50 years.
Hoyo de Monterrey Epicure Selección is described as a Honduran puro that channels the brand’s history and celebrates the tradition of Honduran cigars and Honduran-grown tobacco that dates back to the 1950s when the Villazon Cigar Factory was first established. This cigar line is made using proprietary aging techniques and old world craftsmanship. The well-balanced blend features a Cuban seed wrapper, binder and filler tobaccos that combine to make a medium to full-bodied cigar with peppery and earthy notes and complexity.
“Epicure Selección speaks to the legacy of Hoyo de Monterrey which is one of the first brands to have been made in Honduras, and one of the first to feature bold blends made with native Cuban seeds cultivated in Central America. The history of Hoyo de Monterrey was carved out by some of the most revered tobacco men that ever lived, and we honor their contributions to the handmade cigar category with this new collection,” commented Ed Lahmann, senior brand manager for Hoyo de Monterrey.
Hoyo de Monterrey Epicure Selección was made by the artisans at the HATSA Factory in Danlí, Honduras. This cigar is presented in an understated cabinet style box that contains 20 cigars. Hoyo de Monterrey Epicure Selección will come in three different sizes: No. 1 (5.6 x 46), No. 2 (4.9 x 50), and Toro Especial (6 x 50). MSRP per cigar will range between $8.49 and $8.99.
