Hoyo de Tradicion

Description

A top-notch blend from the Villazon factory.

Hoyo de Tradicion honors the rich history and celebrated tradition of Hoyo de Monterrey, one of the oldest and most respected brands around. In creating this cigar, a Honduran-grown viso Rosado wrapper was cultivated from the Jamastran Valley. This lovely leaf boasts a leathery texture and reddish hue, a lovely leaf which is draped around a hearty blend of Nicaraguan, Honduran, and Dominican long-leaf tobaccos. The result is a rich, hearty array of flavor backed by a pleasant sweetness on the finish and aroma. Notes of nuts and earthy undertones are present throughout the cool, even burn. This medium-bodied gem is the perfect companion to any nightcap, and a great way to kick off your weekend.

Hoyo de Tradicion received a well-deserved '91' point rating, noting:
"This pressed cigar is covered in an attractive naturalwrapper. An even draw imparts a complex array of nutty leather flavor, tea leaf notes, wood and a bit of pepper."

A very rich and mellow medium body with notes of cocoa and cream over a solid tobacco core. Love 'em in the morning with coffee. Will keep a stock on hand.

Pairs well with spicy Bulleit bourbon. Neither overpowers the other. Should also go well with Eagle Reserve or maybe MM for a sweeter enjoyment.

Hoyo de Tradicion

Steve R
Over the past 2 or 3 months I’ve been enjoying a cigar pretty regularly. And by regularly I mean at least 1-2 each week. Now, that might not seem ‘regular’ to you, but considering the variety of cigars offered to me each week, between samples and new blends, 1-2 a week is surprisingly routine these days. That cigar is Hoyo de Tradicion, the latest addition to the legendary Hoyo de Monterrey family.

The cigar is nicely box-pressed and, despite being solid from head to toe, feels light in the hand. Throughout the box there seems to be some variances in wrapper color, as some leaves are dark brown, while others are lighter and slightly marbleized. However, the reddish Rosado wrapper is thick and smooth to the touch, and the foot of each cigar offers a soft, cedary pre-light aroma. The cigars are fitted with at least 2 caps, which has since been removed by my cutter to get things started.

Upon lit, the Hoyo de Tradicion emits a creamy core with thick grey clouds of smoke. A light spice tickles the back of my palate and seems to grow more intense during the initial inch of the burn. The Rosado leaf promotes a nutty characteristic that’s quite pleasant. One could easily chew on this cigar (lit or unlit) and pick this up. Give it a try, the leathery wrapper can withstand a good deal of chomping. The ash is dark grey and black, solid in form, and holds strong after the first inch, at which point the cigar becomes richer in flavor. A nice stream of earthy undertones begins to develop, and an unexpected sweetness now lingers on the sides and front of my palate. The cigar is medium-bodied, and very smooth, even through the nose. The spice on the finish fades a bit, lending room for a dry, cedary aftertaste which holds strong until the end. During the burn I notice a few changes in the cigar, and each time the transition is gradual and balanced. It’s medium in body, but don’t be surprised if you get a light buzz every now and then.

While enjoying Hoyo de Tradicion, I highly recommend exhaling through your nose every once in a while to truly appreciate the rich subtleties of General’s proprietary Ometepe tobaccos. If you’re unfamiliar with this type of leaf, it’s grown in the volcanic soils of Ometepe, an island of Nicaragua. The tobaccos are hearty and rich, and when properly aged and combined with comparably aged Dominican and Honduran long-fillers to make Hoyo de Tradicion, it really is something special.

If you’re a fan of Hoyo de Monterrey or Excalibur, I highly recommend giving Hoyo de Tradicion a go. If you’ve yet to try anything from the family, this is a great place to start.

For a limited time, score a Hoyo ICON Robusto 5-Pack (worth $38) with select Hoyo de Monterrey box purchase for just $1 more!

Small-batch in 1865, ‘ICON’ic in 2019.

Where would the cigar industry be without the classic, Iconic releases of yesteryear? Some say that the name of the game these days is boutique. Plenty of connoisseurs almost hesitate to try cigars with name recognition, because everyone seems to be focused on the one-offs and the rare stuff. But despite these trends (that always come and go), there are a few brands that have always been there for us. Hoyo de Monterrey is one of those brands, delighting cigar fans for more than 150 years. How could you beat that track record? The answer: You don’t. You honor it properly with an ICON release.

With this single-size 5.5” x 49 robusto, Hoyo de Monterrey becomes the third cigar brand to be honored with an ICON release, joining Macanudo and Punch in this exclusive club. You can join in on the festivities too, and the cost of admission is just one of these phenomenal cigars. The first thing you’ll notice is the gorgeous Corojo wrapper, a tribute to the kind Jose Gener grew in Cuba when the name was registered way back in 1865. This sits atop a Dominican binder and filler, and provides a toasty, Cuban-esque accent to the mellow-medium bodied notes of cream, nuts, and cedar. A touch of pepper guarantees this is a blend that won’t make you yawn, and the excellent construction ensures you won’t have to put them down until you’re burning your fingers. The past is very strong for Hoyo, but the future is even brighter. Grab a box of Hoyo ICON, and raise a glass to another 150 years.
