Handmade in Cofradia, Honduras, Hoyo de Monterrey Reposado en Cedros was released in 2010 at the IPCPR (International Premium Cigar & Pipe Retailers Association) show. Hoya de Monterrey began in Cuba in 1960, produced by leaf grower and founder José Gener. His family farmed in the Vuelta Abajo valley (famed for its fertility) for many years during the late 1800s, making this one of the most deeply historically-rooted brands on the market today. The Reposado en Cedros Liso is brimming with flavor due to its hearty and dense blend of Honduran, Nicaraguan, and Dominican long-fillers, Connecticut Broadleaf binder, and its dark, oily, Ecuadoran Sumatra leaf wrapper. Encased in fragrant cedar, the cigar is then put down for a long nap and it matures into a complex bouquet of rich flavors that consist of spices, earth, cedar, and coffee. Our panel loved this cigar with its consistent flavors from start to finish and Cigar Aficionado agreed rating the Reposado en Cedros with a 90. This medium bodied smoke can be best enjoyed with Pinot Noir.
Honduras has been a tobacco growing and cigar manufacturing area for hundreds of years, but it was the Communist revolution in Cuba that really put Honduras on the map. In the 1960s, many Cuban cigar makers fled their homeland and arrived in Honduras to re-establish their way of life. The immigrants took advantage of the climate, soil, and geography, which were well-suited to tobacco growing, and began producing high quality cigars. The center of the Honduran cigar industry is the city of Danli and the nearby Jamastran Valley. The majority of the world’s pure Corojo tobacco is grown here, now that Cuba has stopped production of this iconic, spicy, and rich variety in favor of Corojo hybrids. Other important areas of Honduran cigar production include the Talanga Valley, Copan, and Trojes.
