Excalibur #2 premium cigars are blended to be lighter in flavor than the main line Hoyo De Monterrey premium cigars. Named for the mythical sword, each Excalibur cigar is expertly handcrafted in a Cuban tradition dating back to 1865. Their unique character and aroma comes from a blend of the finest Dominican, Honduran, Nicaraguan fillers, Connecticut broadleaf binder and cedar-aged, U.S. Connecticut wrappers. A really fine cigar for the money, and a big favorite among golfers, too.
I've been smoking these for 20 years. I enjoyed them for their easy draw and rich taste. However, the draw has become much more throttled, the construction obviously not as good, which makes it hard to enjoy the taste. Considering a change.
The Excalibur is a wonderful cigar. It is smooth with a great great aroma. I enjoy this lighter cigar both in the morning and evening. Great cigar at a great price!
About 6 months ago I compared this cigar to Fuente 858 and since then, things have changed. The Fuentes went down in flavor and the Excaliburs went up. This is a really good stick. The mellowness and flavor of chocolate and spice with a hint of vanilla has taken me by storm. I give this cigar a justified 9.5 across the board.
