HC Series Habano2

The best HC Series yet.

When HC first dipped thier toe in to the cigar game, doubters loomed around every corner. But ten 90+ ratings later, the cynics have been silenced and the brand is walkin' on sunshine. Now enter the newest cigar in the HC Series, the Habano squared. A de-lish box-pressed morsel destined for big things....very big things.

As soon as HC ventured out to develop the Habano squared, nothing but the best would suffice. Everything from hand-selected leaves, down to the box-press were carefully thought out and executed. And the end result is extraordinary, because what awaits is a medium to full-bodied creation that is complex, uber-smooth and highly satisfying. Carefully crafted in Nicaragua, the blend starts with a hearty dose of patiently aged Honduran and Nicaraguan long-fillers. This rich core is hugged by an Ecuadorian Sumatra binder, smoothing out and complementing these bold leaves. Finally, an Ecuadorian Habano 2000 wrapper is carefully draped over the outside, boasting ample oils and a seamless appearance. Together these tobaccos wrangle up an impressive display of white billowy smoke. Predominant notes of roasted nuts and pepper mingle with nutmeg, coffee, and cedar before a creamy finish. Impressive from beginning to end, the Habano squared is no doubt the shining star of the HC Series.

HC Series Habano2 Toro
Not too strong. Not too weak. Slightly sweet like raisins. Canoes and has to be relit sometimes, but that's ok. Got'm in the clearance aisle, so the price is reasonable. Hope they continue to stay in inventory.

Best of all premiums I smoke
I have had problems with plugged or slow draw cigars. Nothing ruins my enjoyment more than a cigar that does not draw freely. The HCs by Zikar have never done that. I've not smoked over 20 different versions of the HC and have never found a bad draw on any of them. The flavors are wonderful and the draw is consistently open, free and smooth. I simply will no longer purchase cigars where I've had significant draw problems. This includes certain versions of Gurkha, Alec Bradley, Montecristo and Partagas. Never a any problems with Oliva, Graycliff, Padron and Zikar's HC

Solid Box Pressed Construction
I found the strength to be medium and a lot of flavor. The burn was very even all the way to the end. This is another excellent blend from AJ.

Hit the mark!
Great Draw! Well made! Great taste for a med. full bodied cigar. Glad I took a second try. The first box of HCs poorly made, every 4th cigar had to throw out.

Great Cigar!
Another tasty little number from Xikar for the medium to full bodied smoker. A consistent place in my humidor, I smoke them anytime of day. Good blend for those moving up from mild/medium to medium/full.

Solid sticks for the dollar...
These are excellent choices for a lower coast, every day cigar. The only concern that I’ve experienced is that a few have had a very poor draw and I had to discard one after only a few minutes because I couldn’t establish a decent draw. Great flavor and aroma and ample smoke. I recommend these sticks for sure!

Great everyday smoke.
Have had them in several different sizes, I have been using these as my everyday cigar in place of Padron thousand series since padron's price hike. I got them in a sampler one time and fell in love, the construction, the feel, the taste, the smoke, everything is on point and I would consider them in a 6-8$ a stick range yet they are often found on sale for $4 each!

Keep away! Spend your money on better!
Should've bought something else...totally disappointed! Would not stay lit. Had to draw from it 3+ times every min just to keep lit. Poor quality

Super High Value Fantastic Smoke
I bought a box of these when CI was running one of their daily deals because of the high ratings and the gorgeous box pressed look. I have to admit being skeptical of a Xikar cigar, since I am only familiar with their accessories. I was really blown away by how good these are. The wrapper is gorgeous and oily. The construction is second to none. These are what I would consider a medium-full bodied cigar with nice complexity and loads of smoke. They stay lit on one light with a solid ash line and do not ever get harsh right to the last inch I usually stop smoking a cigar at. I would have to say these cigars are the best value of any cigar I have ever purchased. I will buy these again, for sure.

Zero Regrets - Great price point for a 90+ cigar
Great medium to full body smoke. The construction was excellent and you can smoke this one to the nub with no harsh taste or burn. Keeps up with the likes of Oliva and Camacho.

Customer Testimonials
This is my first Xikar cigar as well. It is everything you would expect a classic premium cigar to be. Not too spicy, peppery, harsh or hot, yet not weak in any aspect. Wonderfully rich & satisfying aroma, and just a real pleasure to relax with out on my deck. I think that there are many cigars on the market that substitute brute strength for great flavor because it may be easier or cheaper to blend. I don't know. I know that this Habano2 was perfect for me. Try it!
I ordered a five pack of these to sample the brand and I think they are well made and a good value. Flavor is as advertised and construction is top notch. The wrapper is thick and appealing in color and the entire cigar is enjoyable from light to nub. I would recommend and would buy again ( after I finish trying the rest of the cigars they make first!)
After a month of rest in the humi, this cigar was a pleasant surprise. Draw, burn, and smoke are suburb! Flavor is complex though still mellow and simple enough to really enjoy that rare and special clean, pleasant tobacco taste. The backend is filled with notes of leather, farm, and lightly roasted coffee. I highly recommend at this price point!
HC Series Habano2 toro is the 1st Xikar cigar I have tried. Finding it in the AJ Fernandez Full Bodied Feast Mega Sampler saved me a bundle. By lighting one up within an hour of delivery, I am taking a chance, but to it's credit, Habano2 is performing well. Nice, even burn, a firm ash & distinctive full flavors compliment the flawless construction. Cedar & spices felt through the nose dominate, while earth tones caress the palate. Not too peppery or spicy, a step down from true full bodied, nonetheless quite powerful, no doubt driven by the Ecuadorian Habano 2000 wrapper & Sumatra binder employed. Honduran & Nicaraguan filler tobaccos make this 3 country blend a smooth, creamy delight. It's another AJ creation that demands our attention.
WOW!!! Creamy with a kick. Great stick.
It was the night before I would have to get all four of my wisdom teeth removed so I had to chose my last cigar before surgery wisely. Got this in the HC sampler and it stood out to me by its perfectly pressed construction. This was the first pressed cigar I've smoked and the way it confortably fit in my mouth made the experience more enjoyable. The cigar was amazing! It is a definitely a 90+ rating cigar in my opinion. Lots of smoke, great draw, and flavors were phenominal. Balanced and blended correctly. If you love Habano wrappers, look no futher. This is the one.
Had these right out of the box and they are now my favorite. They smoke well with lots of smoke. Nice ash.
Pretty decent cigar. Nothing special but i cant say anything bad about it.
I am smoking this beauty right now and all I can say is WOW. The flavor is wonderful, beautiful presentation, and draw is perfect. Great Job Xikar keep it up!
Great tasting cigar with a balanced flavor.
In the HC Series, I like the Criollo, love the Habano Colorado and lust after the Habano2. The sexiest and tastiest of the line.
