Excalibur Maduro Cigars
Just one Connecticut Broadleaf wasn’t enough to contain the chocolaty goodness packed into the Hoyo de Monterrey Excalibur Maduro cigar so General Cigar added a second as the binder. The result is an earthy, medium-bodied cigar that it complex and creamy in all the right ways. The recipient of a Cigar Aficionado top-25 in 2007, this smoke still compares favorably with many of today’s popular brands and stands as a preeminent example of a solid, classic Honduran maduro. It certainly doesn’t hurt that the three-country filler tobaccos beneath the dual Connies are the direct descendants of the seed Estelo Padron smuggled out of Cuba after the revolution.
The flavor is rich with cocoa and coffee, yet at the same time tangy and sweet. 90+ rated and amazingly affordable, you can’t afford to not have a box comfortably aging right now for future enjoyment. Just don’t expect to have them sitting in you humidor for that long, but they’re so good you won’t mind buying them again and again. Luckily, these cigars have staying power so they should be around to satisfy for years to come.
