I recently purchased these from your latest catalog, and your description of them is right on the money. I would put these up against a Chateau Fuente or a Padron #2000. What a great cigar!
I got this as one of the cigars in the Famous Super Premium Sampler. It's been in the humidor for a couple of months and I got around to trying it today. I found it to be an incredibly tasty mild smoke. It burned well, drew effortlessly and the ash was white and tight. The price is right and I'll be buying more of these.
This is an exceptionly great cigar. Taste, burn, construction it's all there. I would recommed this as a must try. You won't be disappointed.
You can not go wrong with any hoyo and this one will please.A fine cigar anytime med with a real good taste.
I can't understand Rob from Maryland. The Epicure was smooth and nutty with a perfect burn. I've gone through many boxes of Hoyos and not a problem with any of them. I could count the touch-ups on one hand. Currently I'm finishing the box of Epicures and not a problem with construction, draw, taste, or burn. I've also smoked many Rocky Pstels and the only thing I can say is, it's a good cigar but not near worth the price Rocky Patel thinks it's worth. No Rocky is more than a three dollar stick.
Consisently the best. I am not at all an expert and have stuck with sample packs for years but this one stood out in the crowd. Mild to the end. My fingers got hot when the cigar gets down to less then an inch before the smoke does. And I usually dump a cigar as soon as it gets hot or bitter which is some where around three inches. But not these.
A favorite. The only dissapointment is when you have to put it out. Another hard to lay down cigar. Great for a evening stroll or with a few "brewskies" at the pub. Paleeze Santa, bring me a box, or three.
The Excalibur Epicure is an incredible value. It has a great taste with some spice but no harshness. The quality of construction is impeccable and the wrappers are beautiful. These cigars burn evenly and draw well. Just ordered my second box. I used to smoke La Gloria Cubana Wavells but I'm a convert to Excalibur now. No better Cigar for the money and better than many costing two to three times as much
Ijust got back into cigars after a long absence. I had mixed rememberances about Hoyo's. In the last 5 months I probably have sampled 30 different offerings. This Excalibur Epicure is in the top 5. Beautiful full smoke. Near perfect draw and construction Nutty to Caramel mild/medium flavor. My favorite combination and a good value. To those who found poor burn and flavor my experience tells me that when others are raving and you can't understand it you might look to your tobacconist. Odds are somewhere in the chain the cigars weren't properly cared for
Put these on your have to list. Smoked it until my fingers burned. Great stick!!!
