Hoyo de Monterrey is one of the oldest and most respected brands on the market today and their Hoyo de Tradición is another top-notch blend to join their line. Hailing from Honduras at the famed Villazon factory, this box-pressed beauty features a hearty blend of long-leaf tobaccos from the Dominican Republic, Honduras, and Nicaragua which is secured by a habano binder. Draped on top is a leathery and reddish hued Honduran-grown viso Rosado wrapper from the Jamastran Valley. Together, these elements generate a rich depth of flavor including cool notes of nuts, earthy undertones, and a touch of finishing sweetness. This medium-bodied wonder received a 91 point rating from Cigar Aficionado and is perfectly paired with your favorite nightcap, such as a whiskey.
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.
