It is the Hoyo de Monterrey Epicure No.3, a petit belicoso that measures 4 7/8 inches (125mm) long with a 54 ring gauge. It is a new size for the Cuban cigar portfolio, and in cigar factories, it is a vitola known as Originales.
This is the thickest vitola in the Hoyo de Monterrey Epicure line, and the first figurado to date. The No.3 is offered in 25-count boxes, with Habanos S.A. issuing a press release stating it will also be available in 10-count boxes. There have also been reports of a three-pack of tubos being available at some point.
It comes wearing a band that indicates the cigar’s name, a trait it shares with the other cigars in the Hoyo de Monterrey Epicure line.
