A mouthful of a name befits a stogie with a mouthful of flavor. The Excaliburs are a world-class cigar hand-rolled by the same makers as Hoyo De Monterrey. Their Excalibur is made using only Honduran and Nicaraguan tobacco deemed to be among the top 10% of the factory’s inventory. In addition to a sterling, ’92’ point rating, Hoyo de Monterrey Excalibur was named one of Cigar Aficionado’s top 25 cigars of the year. Note the Connecticut shade wrapper is shiny and smooth with no large veins or blemishes. Get a whiff of the pre-light aroma. Close your eyes. It’s so sweet and doughy you’ll envision yourself inside a curing barn. The roll is solid from head to toe and, once lit, the draw is perfect. Expect notes of wood and toast and look for some sweet nutty undertones that linger a bit after each puff. If you miss it, roll it around on your palate for awhile before releasing the smoke. Hoyo Excalibur is a pleasant, easy-going medium-bodied smoke that offers a rich, but not overwhelming, core of oak and toast. Hoyo Excalibur can easily fool the unsuspecting enthusiast. While both flavor and strength remain consistent from start to finish, the blend—consisting of long-fillers from Honduras, Nicaragua, and the Dominican Republican—is quite complex. The use of two aged Connecticut shade leaves – one as binder, one as wrapper – likely mellows the blend, creating a smooth and balanced bouquet. If you prefer cigars that evolve as they burn, the Excalibur may not be your favorite, but when construction, consistency, and aesthetics are considered, this stick is almost perfect. Spark up this gem in your easy chair with a bottle of your favorite single malt close by.
