1999 Hoyo de Monterrey Petit

Not to be confused with the Cuban marcas, this Jose Gener petit was a small Honduran cigar from the Villazon factory, packaged in a slide-top cedar mini box.

These inelegant little firecrackers were bigger than a club, but perfect for a 15-30 minute break.

Featuring Nicaraguan filler, Honduran binder, and an Ecuadorian Sumatra (like the Punch Rare Corojo, only EMS-colored) wrapper, in their prime these were medium-full cigars that gave a solid Villazon kick to the scrote without the lengthy relationship necessary to enjoy the larger sizes.

I bought these on a whim during a visit to JR Whippany back in the day. Had a great sit down with some locals and a nice dinner to boot.

I’m not sure if these were hand rolled or not. Most of the pictures of these online make them look nicer than the workingman’s cigars in my box. Mine are unsphisticated in appearance, with almost conical caps that were inexpertly applied.

When I smoke one, I find myself expectorating bits of tobacco like an old man spitting bits of shell while eating sandy clam chowder at a rustic snack bar on Cape Cod.

Despite their appearance and the flecks of tobacco I encounter, I really enjoy these little hick cigars. Like me, they’re old and scrappy.

Thanks for sharing one with me Sean, I appreciate your honest reviews.
