Rated '90,' HC Series Criollo from Xikar is a soothing, medium-bodied treat layered with flavor. The wrapper is a silky, Nicaraguan shade-grown wrapper teeming with rich nuances. Underneath, a well-aged combination Honduran and Nicaraguan long-leaf tobaccos unites. After extensive post-roll aging, the HC Series Criollo burns slow and cool, yielding a toasty core of nuts, wood, and leather with a long and satisfying finish. It's tasty....very tasty, and Joe suggests you try it ASAP.
