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.
