Hoyo De Monterrey Excalibur Limited Edition. $5.60 at
Top25Cigar Rating : 8.12
The Connecticut shade wrapper contrasted sharply with the dark blend of Honduran, Nicaraguan, and Dominican filler.
Spice was the initial sensation from the thick, creamy smoke. That taste faded as the white ash grew. A warm, smoky flavor developed about a quarter of the way through, and the finish got drier. Near the halfway point, I got hints of what seemed to be coffee and caramel, while the spice came and went several times.
All in all a fine cigar that could find a home in my humidor anytime.
