Habanos SA announces the cigar it will distribute to celebrate the Chinese New Year 2021, the Hoyo de Monterrey Primaveras. 2021 will be the Year of the Ox in the Chinese Zodiac calender.
Hoyo de Monterrey Primaveras is a parejo that measures 48 x 167 mm (6.6″). The band that is used is the classic of the Hoyo de Monterrey brand and the foot is protected by an additional band bearing the red and gold effigy of an Ox. In China these colors symbolize luck, joy and wealth.
Habanos draws heavily on the symbolism of Chinese culture by widely using the number 8 (which stands for prosperity and success). The Primaveras will be distributed in the limited quantity of 8,888 boxes each containing 18 cigars.
Hoyo de Monterey Primaveras succeeds the Romeo y Julieta Maravillas 8 distributed in conjunction with the Chinese new year 2020.
