Beginners Brand?

The most common attribute assigned to the Hoyo de Monterrey in general is that it's ideal for beginners. Although I would agree with the statement to an extent, labelling Hoyo de Monterrey as a 'beginners brand' is in my opinion unfair.

Hoyo de Monterrey Le Hoyo de San Juan

Hoyo de Monterrey Le Hoyo de San Juan.

As of 2014, the Le Hoyo de San Juan will be biggest ring gauged Hoyo de Monterrey in current production. What's interesting about this release however, is that the Cigar would be part of the Le Hoyo series, that is dominated by thinner ring gauged Cigars.

The San Juan will follow the trend of recent years of large bands with the name of the Cigar embossed underneath the logo. Examples of this band styling include the Hoyo de Monterrey Epicure de Luxe and H. Upmann Connoisseur A.

The San Juan is available in slide lid cabinets of both 10 & 25 cigars.

Hoyo de Monterrey Grand Epicure

Unveiled at the 2013 Habanos Festival in February, the Hoyo de Monterrey Grand Epicure comes in a Slide Lid Box of ten Cigars. This is quite an interesting Limited Edition release as the Grand Epicure is presented in two rows of five Cigars.

The Hoyo de Monterrey Grand Epicure, is a fifty five ring gauge, by thirteen centimetres in length. This will make the Grand Epicure a thicker, longer version of the Epicure No. 2. Therefore the Grand Epicure will share the same dimensions as the Romeo y Julieta Wide Churchill.

The Cigar features a special "Double Band". This band is similar to the one found on the Hoyo de Monterrey Epicure de Luxe, 2012 La Casa Del Habanos release.
