Hoyo de Monterrey Excalibur

November 9, 2015

Hoyo de Monterrey is a storied brand, with roots dating back to the 19th century in Cuba. The modern day Hoyo known to American smokers is a well crafted Honduran masterpiece, making it a premium medium to full bodied smoke. In order to widen their appeal even more, the General cigar company set off to create a new line using different long fillers and wrappers, to be able to grasp a wider audience. This idea eventually turned into the fantastic and versatile Hoyo de Monterrey Excalibur series. Each one of these cigars utilizes a different wrapper to offer the smoker a wider range of flavor profiles.

If you are a fan of Hoyo de Monterrey but looking for something a tad lighter, the original Excalibur is the perfect choice. It uses a Connecticut shade wrapper and boasts a great profile of cream and vanilla with a great cedar after taste. For the aficionado who prefers something rich and bold, no cigar fits better than the Excalibur Dark Knight series. Available in an array of sizes, this dark Excalibur uses a rich, Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper and binder and a mix of Dominican and Nicaraguan long fillers.

For those of you who prefer the rustic Cameroon wrapper, they have an answer for that as well. The Excalibur Cameroon boasts a beautiful toothy, Cameroon wrapper with Dominican, Honduran, and Nicaraguan long filler tobacco. It’s a great mix of spicy and sweet. Finally for the true connoisseur, the Excalibur 1066 Vintage is the best choice. It uses a Cameroon wrapper and a great mix of fillers, aged for over 14 years. With great notes of almonds, coffee, and caramel, this aged beauty is a spectacular choice.

The Hoyo de Monterrey Excalibur line shows not only the versatility of the Hoyo line, but also how Honduran tobaccos can be used in different variations for different flavor profiles. Normally rich, earthy and leathery, the Excalibur line shows how Honduran long filler, when blended differently, can have an array of flavor notes. The Hoyo de Monterrey Excalibur line is a fan favorite and available right here in all its shapes and sizes.
