More info about purchasing Hoyo de Monterrey Excalibur cigars...
I am always on the lookout for non-Cuban cigars that I can add to my collection. I have often heard about the Hoyo De Monterrey Excalibur but never had the opportunity to try it. While in Manhattan a few months back I decided to seek them out and was able to find a 5-pack for $30.00. I was told by the clerk that they did not have many more available and that they sell out pretty quick. I figured it had something to do with the very affordable price of $6.00 a cigar and was actually hoping that it had more to do with the cigar itself. The MSRP for this cigar is $5.00 so I am sure that you can find this cigar online for that price. So how does this $5.00 to $7.00 robusto-sized cigar hold up? I wanted to be as fair as possible so I smoked two cigars 4 days apart. The following is my review detailing my experience.
