Founded in 1865, the famous Hoyo de Monterrey brand is reflecting on its roots with Hoyo Epicure Seleccion. Originating in Cuba and relocating to Honduras following Castro’s takeover, Hoyo de Monterrey has been through it all and stands today as an incredibly popular brand in the vast General Cigar Company umbrella.

To celebrate Hoyo’s history in both Honduras and Cuba, General pulled all the stops to ensure that Epicure Seleccion lives up to the Hoyo legacy. Hand rolled at the HATSA factory as three popular vitolas, these gems feature only the finest aged Honduran Cuban-seed tobaccos throughout the blend, making them not only Honduran puros, but also Cuban-seed puros.

Epicure Seleccion brings these two chapters of Hoyo’s history together with a harmoniously balanced and flavorful medium-full bodied smoke with swirling notes of peppery spice, coffee, earth, nuts, leather, and sweet hickory. Any aficionado that appreciates bold flavor with a kick of spice should consider this gem for their humidor.

Complete with classic slide-top boxes of 20 and adorned with bands that evoke that old-world style, these gems are just as close to Cuban as you can get without having to go to the forbidden island itself. If you want to enjoy the rich Cuban-style flavors of Hoyo Epicure Seleccion cigars, order a box of your preferred size online today from JR Cigars!
