Hoyo de Monterrey Excalibur Black
Oh man, these cigars look gewd.
If you’re into Maduro's, Hoyo de Monterrey Excalibur Black cigars have probably got you salivating. They’re luscious and oh-so-dark. These things must have been fermenting for longer than anything else in the storehouse because they got some serious color. Compared to the core Excalibur line, they’re turning up the dial a few pips. Ed Lahmann, senior brand manager for Excalibur explains, “With Excalibur Black, we are beginning the next chapter of the brand’s 40-year legacy with a feisty, fuller-bodied offering.”
Hoyo de Monterrey Excalibur Black cigars have got all the makings of a powerhouse smoke: the Connecticut broadleaf Maduro wrapper, the exotic Ecuadorian Sumatra binder, and the rich mix of Nicaraguan and Honduran long-filler tobacco leaves. With that kind of a lineup, you’ve got to take this one seriously. Don’t put a lighter to it unless you’re in the mood for pop you in the mouth flavor and slap you upside the head potency.
Sound like the Hoyo de Monterrey Excalibur Black cigar will kick your butt? Well, it’s named after the sword of legend… there’s bound to be a few casualties when it gets brandished.
It might sound funny to hear about the 40th anniversary of a company with a heritage that goes back to the 1800s, but this is a different branch of the Hoyo de Monterrey family tree. The Cuban version is one company, while the ones we smoke are made in Honduras. Clearly, they start the clock at a much more recent date, when it comes to their modern perspective.
Fans of earthy, rich, flavorful smokes will get everything they need as they taste their way through notes of espresso, black pepper, raisins, and hot sauce. It’s obvious that this cigar is no ninny. Grab a five-pack and keep them aging on hand for days when you need a cigar that doesn’t mess around at all.
