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 stellar 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 Connecticut is a cigar which Xikar proudly claims to have spent 5 years in the making. Just enough time to make it perfect. This complex blend is chock full of aged Costa Rican, Mexican, and Nicaraguan long-fillers all held together with a feisty Sumatra binder. Topping off this complex bouquet is a beautiful Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper. The end result is stunning stick that provides a highly unique and enjoyable experience as the distinct tobaccos truly shine. The HC Connecticut delivers smooth, creamy, and nutty nuances backed by a mild to medium-bodied profile. Simply put, it was worth the 5 years.
