HC lite!

Xikar is a name synonymous with the cigar industry’s top accessories. 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.

Very dry

Great looking cigar, but...
I have mixed feelings with the 6X60 HC Series Connecticut Grande, I have tried 10 and maybe 5 were really good, the others were very inconsistent on taste, draw, and burn.

Fair smoke at a fair price
Overall, this is a reasonable, easy going smoke. Toasty taste at the front, mild and smokey in the middle and good fullness at the end. A fair stick to stock you humidor with when you don't have time or don't want to burn one of your "specials". My only complaint has been the occasional hard draw when it was wrapped too tight. Boy, don't you hate that! Yep, enough that I won't yet make this HC my go to stick.

Love these little cigars
Lots of taste packed in a little punch. Just the right size for an everyday smoke.

The HC Series Connecticut Churchill is a very good cigar. it has an excellent flavor and burns very even. I have smoked many different brands over the years, and this one ranks near the top for me. If you want a lighter flavor that is not harsh or leaves a bitter taste, give this cigar a try. The Lonsdale is a bit shorter, but is just as good.

Xikar lighters, move over; you got competition in your new cigar brand.
This a very excellent cigar. Splendid presentation, flawless construction, impeccable Ecuadorian CT wrapper, and a solid medium-minus body with ample flavor. Exhaling thru the nose makes this a medium body with a medium finish. A very pleasant surprise, indeed, since this was my 1st box of Xikar HCs. I urge CI smokers to venture forth immediately--if not sooner--and order a box.

Customer Testimonials
Got a 5-pack in a CI special buy of four 5-packs. I thought they were just padding the selection with these but figured I was still getting a deal with the other 5-packs. I have to say I was really impressed with this smoke. It had plenty of flavor and enough complexity to keep me interested for the full ride. These are a great smoke.
I had 5 of these as part of a 20-stick HC Series sampler, and not being a huge Connecticut fan had saved them for last. I need not have - trying my first one now, I find it smokes well with no lack of smoke nor flavor. Bit of a surprise, really. And very good with Saturday morning coffee.
Great flavor; cedar, nutty, and a little bit of leather. Razor sharp burn. At times it produces good amouts of smoke and other times not a lot. That was only issue but draw was smooth. Mild to medium definitely. Robusto was a good 45 minutes. Good connecticut. A 4/5 for me.
Good draw, great construction & a pleasant stick. Personally I felt it grew into a heavier medium than graded here but definitely not full. Worth every penny!
