Tasting on 15.02.21: Test follows until 07.03.2021
A non-public tasting will take place in the lounge of Zigarren.Zone Social Network on 15.02.21. Due to the COVID-19 measures, of course, under the prescribed safety measures. Two people will be present: Christian Schmid (Photo factory 321) and Vasilij Ratej (publisher of Zigarren.Zone Social Network). A large test article with beautiful photos and a video will appear here on the website this week.
SPOILER ALERT: Mild, aromatic. Get a case or more if you can. I have tasted a sample. Of course, it's unfair and too early to make a final judgment. But... 🙂
Let's finally get to the unboxing. I hope you enjoy it.
Do you still fancy the unboxing? Sure you do, don't you?

Hoyo de Monterrey
Hoyo de Monterrey is one of the most renowned Habanos brands. The name goes back to the plantation of the same name in San Juan y Martínez* in the heart of the Vuelta Abajo*. Undoubtedly one of the most famous plantations on very fertile soil. It alludes to the fertility of the Cuban lands, where one of the world's most famous tobaccos is grown. All vitolas of the brand are "Totalmente a Mano con Tripa Larga" - completely by hand, with long filler produced. The leaves all come from the Pinar del Río region*, in the Vuelta Abajo region*.
