Hoyo Excalibur Cigarillos

Jeff K

With a small cigar, there’s really not much to say. So I’ll keep it short and sweet.

Hoyo de Monterrey Excalibur Cigarillos are my favorite small cigar. In between my normal rotation, or when time demands something quick, these are my go-to.  First, they’re all homogenized wrappers or even, God forbid, paper like some of the other stuff out there. Second, they taste great – big cigar flavor in a cigarillo size. The smoke is thick and creamy and the flavor is rich. Plus, they’re packaged in nice pocket-sized tins. So if you’re like me, a traditional-sized cigar guy who needs something smaller occasionally, Excalibur Cigarillos are the best I’ve found.

Note: I’ve tried the Miniatures too. And although the flavor is mostly the same, they’re extremely small and they burn hot. So I’m not really a fan.
