Hoyo de Monterrey Excalibur Legend

Today I’m reviewing the Hoyo de Monterrey Excalibur Legend. This cigar features the same Ometepe tobacco that was featured in the Punch Uppercut that Ben reviewed recently. This cigar was created to be a full-bodied addition to the Excalibur line and was released at the 2008 IPCPR trade show. This cigar is available in 3 sizes and sold in boxes of 20.

Great review. I like the HdM Excalibur Epicure and I had some of the 1066’s that I liked, so I might have to give this a try. Does seem a bit overpriced for what you get, but arent most things now a days ;)

Thanks for the review. I have been curious about these, having heard the trade talk about them. I was interested in Your opinion about potential aging. Do You feel like a touch of age might remedy the draw concerns? How did You think this cigar compared to the Punch that utilised the same “Feature Element” of the Ometepe leaf?

Unrelated question, Dude are You catching a cold?:)

Thanks again,

Great question, and I’m really not sure how to answer it. I’d have to assume that some aging would help this cigar burn better. Although I keep my humidor around 63-65% RH I gues it’s possible that the tobacco was still a little too wet to burn properly. In the future I may consider dry-boxing these cigars for a few days to see if that fixes the issue.

As for the cold, when I recorded this review I felt fine. But as of Sunday I’ve been dealing with a terrible cough. Perhaps I was showing the early signs and didn’t even know it.

Thanks for your input.
