The Dark Sumatra series from Hoyo de Monterrey is a robust and rich cigar - even fuller in body than the original Hoyo de Monterrey. Blended by Estelo Padron, its deep, rich wrapper is striking and aesthetically pleasing, while the the taste is satisfying and complex. This Honduran beauty is made with a dark Ecuadorian Sumatra wrapper, Connecticut broadleaf binder, and long-filler blend of Honduran, Nicaraguan, and Piloto Cubano leaves.
The Dark Sumatra of Hoyo Excalibur received a respectable '89' rating, noting: "A maduro that is woody and cedary. A tea note accompanies some toasty flavors before the long, leathery finish."
My order was probably stolen from my front door where UPS dropped it off so I notified CI and they were incredibly helpful in tracking and sending out a replacement within days. Awesome custimer service. Thanks CI!!!
