The Hoyo de Monterrey Epicure No.2 is one of the iconic Cohiba Robusto cigars. This is a smooth drawing, complex Cuban cigar that won’t blow your head off!
The brand was formed in Cuba in 1865 by José Gener y Batet. Hoyo de Monterrey means ‘hole of Monterrey’, referring to the low position of the plantation which Gener bought.
This band of cigars became popular in Britain and the Gener company was soon one of Cuba’s largest cigar factories in the late 1800s.
The Epicure No. 2 is part of Hoyo de Monterrey’s Epicure line, including the Epicure Especial (Toro), the Epicure No. 1 (Toro) and the Epicure Deluxe (Petit Robusto).
The Hoyo de Monterrey Epicure No 2 is one of the world’s most popular cigars, and for good reason. The cigar is totally handmade using the very best tobacco leaves in Vuelta Abajo – Cuba’s premier cigar growing region.
The construction is flawless and contains a double band, which gives it a very sophisticated appearance. It provides a pleasant, smooth smoke and strong tobacco taste that’s not too overpowering, giving it just enough room for the cocoa, dried fruit and cinnamon flavours to shine through.
Even when the leaves are young it has an even combustion – although it’s best left stored in a humidor for a while. The Hoyo de Monterrey is a cigar for seasoned smokers, however, novices are encouraged to give it a try to see just how complex and flavoursome a fine cigar can be.
