Rarity is highly valued in the world of Cuban Cigars. Synonymous with uniqueness, the Gran Reserva line, an annual release of limited production cigars made from the finest tobacco leaves from Cuba's most premium plantations, has built a strong reputation amongst cigar enthusiasts for always delivering rich and well-matured aromas. While anticipating the release of this year's Gran Reserva from Hoyo de Monterrey Cigars, today we give you an exclusive inside look at the Double Coronas cigar as it was presented to us during the XXI Festival del Habano.

Don Jose Gener, the founder of Hoyo de Monterrey, moved from Sapin to Cuba at the young age of 13 and started working on his uncle's tobacco plantations in the Vuelta Abajo zone, the to cultivate tobacco leaves.
