Two New Hoyo de Monterrey Excaliburs Now on Shelves
Posted: April 1, 2014
For the first time in years, General Cigar has added sizes to the Hoyo de Monterrey Excalibur line, and they're quite thick—the Short Crystal, at 5 1/4 inches by 50 ring and the No. 660, at 6 by 60.
The No. 660 retails for $7.79 per cigar and comes in boxes of 20 while Short Crystals are individually packaged in glass tubes. They come in 10-count boxes and retail for $7.49 each. Neither are offered in maduro, like most of the Excalibur line, which is now totals nine vitolas.
Though these sizes are new, they still consist of the classic Excalibur blend: Connecticut shade wrapper, Connecticut shade binder and filler tobacco from Honduras, Nicaragua and the Dominican Republic. They're produced in Honduras at the Scandinavian Tobacco Group, Danlí factory (formerly known as Honduras American Tobacco S.A).
The Hoyo de Monterrey Excalibur is an offshoot of General's Hoyo de Monterrey core line and is part of three more Excalibur sub-brands: Excalibur Cameroon, Excalibur Dark Knight and Excalibur Legend. Excalibur Reposado en Cedros, which was released in 2010, has been discontinued.
For a tasting on the two new Hoyo de Monterrey Excalibur sizes, see an upcoming issue of Cigar Insider.
