HC Series White Shade Grown

A whiter shade of HC.

HC Series seemingly has it all when you are looking for a quality cigar for a reasonable price. More recent additions to their portfolio including Corojo Red and Black Maduro take this premise a step further, bypassing boxes and sticking to economical bundle packaging while maintaining that spot-on construction and first-rate flavor that garnered multiple 90+ ratings. Flying off the docks would be an understatement for these super-popular offerings, it’s a constant inventory headache trying to produce enough to fill the demand. But here at CI, we will continue to fight for the rights of your palate!

Now, the time has come for the third addition to this stellar line, a lighter version that’s sure to continue the top-selling trend that is HC Series. Welcome, HC Series White Shade Grown. Aptly-named, White Shade Grown features a Connecticut Shade Grown wrapper giving way to smooth, satisfying nuances of sweet cream, oak, and toffee. Long-fillers from the black, volcanic soils of Nicaragua intertwine in this every day standby’s core, and deliver a firmly rolled gem to add to the HC catalog. Jump on these rich, yet mellow offerings before the rest of the pack snatches them up.

Nice Cigar
I prefer a fuller bodied cigar, but these were very flavorful, well constructed and had a good even burn. I can only judge a cigar if it's the first one of the day. After that, my taste buds are desensitized and I can't appreciate the subtleties of the cigar. I would probably buy this one again.

Mild, dependable smoke with a peppery bite
These belicosos are expertly constructed, burn evenly and offer a mild, though not simplistic, experience. Not as mild as a Don Diego or anything, but not quite up to a medium, these sticks offer a peppery bite, especially as one draws nearer the band. A pleasant, not-at-all harsh, retro-hale, too. I picked these up for a great price. Would possibly pick some up at the full price, also. A worthy addition to the humidor, and a substantial -- though not overpowering -- morning cigar.

I have enjoyed several of these. The wrapper is a little delicate at the cut and seems to unravel a bit on every one I have smoked so far. I may be cutting them too much. Good flavor, they are packed a little loose, so it does not take an hour to smoke. Pretty even burn.

Won't Make That Mistake Again
I had one of these in a sampler and I thought it was pretty good, so I ordered a bundle. I'll never make that mistake again. Burns hot, unpleasant flavor, loosely rolled, and quite possibly one of the worst cigars I've ever smoked. I gave it a two just because it didn't cost me an arm and a leg.

5 Star HC white shade grown
For years was a 5 Vega Gold smoker! one day tried CI mistakes, Love them! bought many, only complaint was wanting a larger ring size cigar and will still buy them. Tried HC Belicoso white shade grown WOW!! perfectly rolled great draw, even burn, and a 54 cigar, love them my new cigar smooth till the end.If you didn't know, they could be a high end light cigar. Already ordered another box before they go BACK-ORDERED ! You will not be disappointed if you like a mild/medium cigar. My absolute favorite is a 1999 Olivia Connecticut for special occasions BUT these HC Belicoso white shade grown are coming on STRONG. Thank You Cigar International Robert Bovi

This is a pleasure to smoke when you looking for an easy going cigar. May be a bit to mellow for someone looking for a full body smoke. But it’s smooth flavor and easy draw makes this one of my new go to’s for smoking satisfaction!

A Value Laden Cigar
The HC Series White Shade Grown Robusto is very enjoyable cigar. It's a well constructed long filler cigar with a not too mild flavor - just right (for me). It's got a great tobacco leaf wrapper that screams, "Expensive!" I've enjoyed it for months and will continue to do so.

Nice daily smoke
Once in a while it has a bite at the beginning. Draws good. Stays lit. No canoeing. Mild flavor. Perfect for infusing with bourbon or rum.

Great Morning Cigar
Paired with coffee and morning sunshine it is a terrific way to start the day. Consistent construction with a mild flavor containing hints of cream and toast. The quality makes the price hard to believe.

Go To Robusto
I have purchased these gems more than a couple of times. I even have to order for my friends when they run out. This is an absolutely wonderful smoke for any time of the day. It pairs well with scotch, bourbon, most beers (especially Stella Artois) and even a cup of black coffee. My only disappointment is when they are on backorder.

Love these HCs
Mild but tasty little smokes with a nice even burn. Robusto is the perfect size when you only have 1/2 an hour. Very good smoke at a reasonable price.

Nice Smooth Taste
Nice cigar. Smooth draw. Nice and creamy with a light, mild taste. Some cigars burn a little off center burning a little unevenly. The cigar would have gotten a five star rating except for the burn as mentioned. Be that as it may, this is a good smoke and highly recommended.

Somewhat dissaopinting
First one out of the box was quite impressive, smooth with unique notes and flavors. Every other cigar from the same box was extremely disappointing as the Platte of flavors, complexity and smoothness of the first cigar was never matched.

My new Favorite
The HC White's have become my new favorite. I prefer the Gordo (6x60) size and HC has that available. Very smooth, well constructed, and a reasonable price (for my everyday cigar). I keep re-ordering - there must be a reason.

great cigar; bad outside wrapper; outstanding customer service
I love the smoke, but had an issue with the wrapper disintegrating about half way through the smoke. I must say that I was extremely impressed with the CI customer service desk when I called to tell them. They offered to send out a full replacement immediately. They never questioned me more about the issue or hesitated in any way to send me a label to return them for a full credit. Their only concern was to make sure that I was satisfied. And that's why I do not buy cigars over the Internet from anyone but CI!

For the price
These are great cigars for the price. Light and enjoyable!
2 out of 5
Very hit or miss
When I tried the first one it wasn't pretty, kind of harsh and it fell apart. I thought they might just need longer in the humidor, so I tried another after a week, that one turned out to be pretty smooth and mellow, so great, problem solved. Not really, the next few have also been a bit harsh and most start unravelling halfway through.

Great price. Great mellow smoke
I had received one or two of these HCs in a sampler, and they had smoked very well, with a great mellow flavor. Reminiscent of 5 Vegas gold, in my untrained opinion. These smoked great right out of the box, by the way. When I saw them on special, I gobbled them up. Not disappointed.

Someting old & new ; )
My very first Hoyo Excalibur was over 25 years ago and the flavor was unique and quite special with impressive flavor and notes. I decided to fire up one of the HC's right out of the wrapping rather than letting sit in my humidor and it brought me back to the taste explosion of the Excalibur I had 25 years ago. Mind you the Excalibur's of today taste nothing like they did then. Very impressed with the taste and burn and I will venture down this road again !!!

Great sticks
A buddy of mine gave me some of these as I am just starting out. I liked them so much that i bought a 20 pack that are resting in my humidor now. Easy smoke with a nice creamy taste. All 20 were in great condition. Great price and fast shipping too!

I think that those who enjoy a mild, smooth, mellow, well-built cigar will find this cigar an amazing value. Well constructed, smooth, cool burning, and slightly creamy. For the price point, it is a winner.

mild and priced Right
Bought HC White as it was on sale. Little did I know how much I was going to love them. Smoke them on the golf course. Just a great choice and a great smoke.

Some good, some bad.
Not a bad smoke. The first time I tried them in a sampler, they drew too hard. Tried another bundle, and smokes really well. Good mild smoke. So, hard to say about the quality.

Great stick
This is a great everyday smoke. I drive 60 miles one way to work. I light up before getting on freeway. I get to work with a good 10 to 15 minutes left to smoke if i choose to. The burn is great flavor is just enough for me.

Glad I tried them
Nice comfortable smoke, flavorable and mild. I Like the tapered end, a little harder draw than I'm used to but held it's ash to nearly an inch and didn't go out after being left sitting for a while. A good overall smoke, would reorder.

Infused?
I like these. They have a very distinct vanilla scent and taste very creamy and smooth. Except for the description, I'd say they were mildly infused. Infused or not, I really like them.

Try it, you'll like it
Can't go wrong with this choice. Light, peppery smoke, with an even burn. A solid everyday smoke at a superb value.

excellent
Fantastic smooth smoke. Nice burn, nice ash, light creamy taste completely down the 7inch stick.Wrapper started cracking and giving out 5" down but besides that this stick is worth more in my opinion

They were a bit to mellow for me, I think they are an ok cigar, I'm not sure I would purchase them again, an ok smoke for the price.

Construction is a little spongy. Taste on the mild side. Doesn't come close to the HC Churchill Connecticut. Probably will not buy again.

HC Shade grande
Very good smoke! Good price! Creamy with a small spice and cedar flavor. Reminds me of a "poor mans" Undercrown Shade. The only difference is the the UC may be a slightly more full bodied but you can't beat the price. Highly recommend as a daily smoker without sacrificing quality.
5 out of 5
Very good smoke
This is a very good cigar especially for the money. The burn has been perfect on each one I've had so far. The flavor is consistent throughout. I'll definitely purchase more to fill my humidor.

An undiscovered gem
I've been smoking these since launch and for flavor they can't be beat. The sun grown are perfect early day smokes while the Habana is a great after dinner choice. A great bang for your buck! Try them and you'll be hooked like I was!

Could be better.
This cigar had an average draw with nice smoke, but it needs help in the flavor category. Too much leather taste. If it had some cream and a bit more cedar, it would be something to look forward to. As it is, I don't think I'll order anymore of these.

These cigars are definitely in
These cigars are definitely in my top two smokes! I will without a doubt order these again. I have recommended these to several fellow smokers.
5 out of 5
Definitely would recommend this!
I got one of these in a sampler was very impressed with the construction. Cap was in good shape after cutting. Never split or frayed. Perfect draw every time with a good amount of smoke. Never canoes or tunnels. Ash didn't fall of until about halfway through which was very nice. Some people complained about the lack of flavor, but I thought it tasted just fine. And yes it was on thebay mild side, but it's supposed to be. Overall I was very impressed with this cigars and would recommend them to anyone to enjoys a milder stick or someone who is just starting to get into smoking. Thanks!

Good, Mild Taste
Nice mild bread notes beginning to end. Excellently put together. This side of sweetness; prefer "Slow Aged" or "Baccarat" for more "tobacco" overtones. Might try the Maduro, even though it's more than my usual strength. Top-rate productions, flawlessly rolled, VERY even burn.

Good Mild to Medium Smoke at reasonable cost
I was very surprised how good this cigar was after smoking my first one. The draw was very easy and a Mild to medium taste. After smoking a couple of more HC's, to make sure they were consistent I ordered another box. A very good smoke for a reasonable price

Good deck cigar
Got these in a mild sampler pack. Smells great and a nice flavor without being so complex you have to sit and discuss it. A great deck cigar. Uneven burn and firm draw, and after I formed my opinion I went though and read the reviews and found a lot of folks agree with me on those issues. Other people find an easy draw. This makes me concerned that this is an inconsistent cigar manufacturer, but this is such an easy kick-around cigar I plan on ordering more if there's a deal. For comparison, my favorite mellow cigar is 5 Vegas gold. My fav full bodies are Oliva, Rocky Patel sun grown, and Cain all-ligero.

HC white shade Review.
Of all the HC series White shade size configurations, I find the Belicoso to be the only one I could recommend. Not a dynamic smoke in flavor but, burn and construction are acceptable for a garage cigar.

Disappointed
I just received a five pack in Connecticut sampler, and was not pleased with the HC cigar. Burned unevenly, canoed a couple of times, and really didn't enjoy the taste. I'll let them season in the humidor for a while before trying again. I was expecting more.

Disappointed with the White shade Series.
My first exposure to the series was the Belicoso on a introductory special. Liking the cigar experience, I ordered the robustos and the experience was a step down in burn and flavor. Later I thought I was reordering the Belicoso but, due to my own fault, I ordered the Toro which has a terrible burn and flavor forcing to set them aside for the day I run out and forced to smoke them. This time the Belicoso was ordered which I found to have a good burn but I find that my cigar smoking pleasure is more suited to the HC Red series and the white's are off the reorder list. As a note, I keep my humidors at 69% utilizing fresh Boveda packets.

Great Customer Service
I ordered HC Series White Shade Grown Robusto's. When they had not arrived three weeks after I ordered them and tracking with UPS and USPS could not locate them, I reached out to Cigar International. They immediately sent me another order that I received within a week. Thank you for great customer service and a very good smoke.

This is a terrific cigar. The burn is steady and even, the roll was consistent and no soft spots or lumps. Smoked some right away and am letting some age a tad more. Easy draw, great taste from start to finish. Definitely a keeper.

great deal
these were as good as advertised. smoked one a couple days after getting them and it was excellent. I usually like to let them settle in the humidor for about a month so I haven't tried another one. Sitting a bit should only make them better. Well worth the purchase! I will definitely order more.

Disappointing
I purchased the HC Maduro and it was a wonderful medium to full cigar. So, when HC came out with a more mild White Shade Grown, I had all the confidence. Unfortunately, every stick burns uneven. So much so, I cannot repair and have to throw half of the remaining away. On top of that, the smoke has no personality. Very disappointing for a Xicar product.

Amazing low medium cigar for the price. Smooth right out of the cello with some body to it. If you enjoy Connecticut wrapped cigars it is definitely worth a try. I plan on trying all sizes.

HC Series White Shade
This is really a good smoke. Better than some 2x the price. Nice draw, lots of smoke. I try a lot of cigars at this price point and these will be in the top 3, along with Gispert and Room 101 (Camacho), although the last 2 I mention cost a little more.
