Hoyo de Monterrey Double Corona

Cuba’s double coronas are smoking beautifully right now, and the Hoyo de Monterrey Double Corona is the second Cuban double on our Top 25 list this year. (The other is the Punch Double Corona, which ranked No. 8.) Massive and stately, Hoyo Doubles have built up quite the repuation over the years.

Aside from some bad showings in 2001 and 2002, when Cuban cigar production as a whole was inconsistent, Hoyo de Monterrey Double Coronas have scored in the 90s in Cigar Aficionado and Cigar Insider blind tastings, outstanding on our 100-point-scale. Recent production Hoyo Doubles are all about medium-bodied flavors. They offer a combination of sweet spices, coffee notes and a touch of orange peel. These are sublime, rich, but not-too-powerful smokes that are perfect for whiling away an afternoon.
