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.
The first light she’s bold then goes to a nice medium flavorful smoke and by the time the last 1/3rd is going there’s a nice cedar aroma that pops your nostrils, burn it all the way it’s good

A really nice smoke with nutty tones. Gets better closer to the fingers .Have not bought in years, but glad I came back to it. Will buy on regular basis.

The Hoya Excalibur has always been one of my favorites… Excellent draw, firm ash, even burn and great flavor! At a great value, it is one that I don’t mind burring at the golf course. The Epicure is good for 6 holes, and the #1 is good for 9!
In my humidor there are only cigars that can be smoked down to the nub (most burning my fingers). The Epicure is just that, every time I smoke one. Enjoy…
