Xikar is a name synonymous with the cigar industry’s top accessories. And to be quite frank, it’s a well-deserved accomplishment – as they manufacture a multitude of quality products backed with a lifetime warranty. So why would their cigars be any different? The beauty is, they aren’t. Utilizing the same principles that made Xikar a household name, the HC (Havana Collection) line reveals Xikar’s passion for crafting fine cigars.
The HC Criollo is a bowl full of porridge that’s just right - not too full, not too mild. Well-balanced and medium-bodied, HC Criollo features a dark and eye-catching Nicaraguan Shade Grown wrapper that's been aged for 5 long years. Jam-packed with Honduran and Nicaraguan tobaccos, chewy flavors of leather, nuts, and tobacco generously coat the palate.
Still need more encouragement? The HC Criollo received a well-deserved 90 rating noting: “Large and thick, this cigar draws well, though burns a touch unevenly. It’s nutty and woody with a salty, leathery note. Pleasant and consistent with no harshness or acidity.”
