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.
“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.”

“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!”
TR of Garden City, MI
“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.”

“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.”
