An extremely well-constructed, medium-bodied cigar, Hoyo de Monterrey Excalibur Maduro is a superb example of Honduran craftsmanship. Adorned with a lustrous golden Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper, this cedar-aged Honduran possesses a luxuriously long finish and creamy aroma. Exalted to Cigar Aficionado's "Top 25 Cigars of 2007" list and further regaled by the magazine as "one of the finest Hondurans," the flagship Excalibur I frontmark has also been endorsed by Cigar Aficionado with an outstanding 90+ rating.
Prensado Oscuro is the only box pressed cigar in the Hoyo de Monterrey Excalibur line. This superb dark cigar is wrapped with a USA Connecticut Broadleaf Oscuro wrapper that is oily and flawless. Cigar Aficionado gave this medium bodied Toro a 90 rating and deemed it to have "cedary, toasty, nutty" flavors and an "almondine finish".
