Cigar Review: Excalibur 1066
I finally got around to doing my review on the Excalibur 1066 line. This cigar was picked for the group review in the Cigar Beat forum. I reviewed the Dark Knight III but have never really thought about the rest of the line. It has never grabbed my attention at my local shop. I’m glad it was picked to review by the members or I don’t know when I would have got around to trying it.
Excalibur 1066 King Arthur
Length/Ring: 6 1/4 x 45
Shape: Corona Gorda
Price: Around $5 (Buy Now)
Pre-light: The King Arthur is a nice looking cigar but it doesn’t jump out at you in the store. It has a lot of small veins and has a wet leather look to it. The predraw was firm. I have only used a punch on these and I have had no trouble with it. I feel no soft spots.
The Burn: The burn is as good as I have seen in a while only going off slightly. So no issue at all with the burn line. The ash is grey/black and holds on well. It dropped at about an inch and a half on my demand. I got two different draws on two different cigars. The first one I had was tight the other was good with both having a good amount of smoke. It never thought about going out on me. It seems out of the guys reviewing this line I’m the only one so far to run into a tight draw so I will not hold it against this stogie.
The Taste: This is where I got really surprised and puzzled why I have not had these yet. This is my kind of cigar, this is defiantly a medium smoke with a great nutty flavor throughout. It never got bitter on me and it only got a little hot the last inch. Plus it goes good with a 24oz Bud.
Over all: Burn: good, Taste: good, Price: not so good. I like this cigar a lot, it makes a great smoke while drinking some beer that has a great flavor but something you don’t have to think about to much. At $3.50 this would be a perfect smoke, at a little over $5 it is a good smoke. I recommend you giving this one a try, it makes a great beer drinking cigar.
