One of the most complex and balanced cigars in the Hoyo line.
The Excalibur series has become a legendary brand since its inception. Utilizing thick, hearty long leaves—all well-aged and properly fermented—this brand consists of extraordinary blends. The brand is produced in Honduras at the famous Villazon factory, which incorporates some of the strictest quality control standards in the business. For this reason, Excalibur cigars will fail to disappoint as they all burn perfectly, are meticulously rolled by only the most skilled torcedors, and are guaranteed to be consistent.
The Dark Knight series can easily be considered the "cream of the crop" in Hoyo de Monterrey's portfolio of blends. We've lit up many of these cigars and always received the same results: full flavors, enticing aromas, and complexities that keep your interest down to the nub. The blend consists of premium Dominican, Honduran, and Nicaraguan long leaves, but what makes this blend so great is its wrapper. This very dark, toothy, and oily Connecticut Havana leaf creates a super-smooth character with flavor nuances of cedar and leather. Expect a toasty character from start to finish, which is very similar to Partagas Black.

Customer Reviews of “Hoyo de Monterrey Excalibur Dark Knight”
Started off as a good smooth full bodied smoke and with a long ash. After mid way became a little harsh but still ok. Was able to smoke till about 7/8ths into the smoke. I am not cigar connoisseur but I will say it is worth a try!

Hoyo de Monterrey Excalibur Dark Knight III Robusto

This is another cigar that I have had a few of and the construction has always been excellent with a good clean burn. A very enjoyable full flavored cigar but still smooth with no harsh aftertaste.
