It’s not every day that the creator of Illusione cigars (Dion Giolito) decides to work on a collaborative project, but when he does, it is usually something pretty special. He worked hand-in-hand with the blending team at STG to create an entirely new take on Excalibur cigars by Hoyo de Monterey. This was a cigar that he often smoked while in college and knew its history as one of the most famous marks in the world of premium cigars. We couldn’t wait to see the results. The Illusion of Excalibur blend begins with Nicaragua Estelí Criollo and Nicaragua Estelí Corojo tobaccos for the filler along with a Nicaraguan Jalapa Corojo 2012 binder. The core is topped with a Nicaraguan Corojo ‘99 wrapper. Tasting notes include balanced flavors of cedar, earth, and cocoa with hints of pepper, leather, and cream. If you’re a fan of the original Excalibur blend, this should be familiar, exciting, and new all at the same time!
