Wrapper: Connecticut Shade. Filler: Honduran, Nicaraguan, Dominican (Piloto Cubano). Binder: Connecticut Broadleaf. Country of Manufacture: Honduras. Factory Name: Honduras American Tabaco S. A., Cofradia, Honduras. -- The history: Introduced in the 1970s, Hoyo de Monterrey Excalibur quickly made its mark as a super-premium cigar with an appealing price. To name but one of its many admirers, The Robb Report has recognized Excalibur as one of the world's five greatest cigars. The cigar: An extremely well constructed medium to full bodied cigar, Hoyo de Monterrey Excalibur is a superb example of Honduran craftsmanship. Lighter in color than a Cuban cigar as a result of its fine Connecticut Shade wrapper, this cedar-aged cigar is made with a rich Honduran blend that is very much in the Cuban tradition. The experience: Like the legendary sword that inspired its name, Excalibur is a superbly balanced work of art.
This is my every day cigar, having smoked them for over 28 years. The #2, for me, is the perfect length and ring size. Every now and then I get a cigar that is not rolled correctly and they seem for more often recently. The cigars are creamy and cedary, and are very satisfying. I aged 4 boxes for 7 years, and the results were impressive. But these cigars are made to be smoked upon release, IMHO.

I love them. They have a great flavor and are fairly mild. Tried many others and for the my money they are the best.
