From the industry's leading accessory company now hails a fine, premium cigar. Xikar HC Series earned '91' and '92' ratings from Cigar Aficionado and earned Top 25 Best Cigar accolades for 2008 and 2009!
Xikar has been a titan in the cigar accessories business and it seemed like only a matter time before they got into making cigars themselves. For this special project, they tapped into the talents of Jesus Fuego. Fuego was raised in a family steeped in five generations of experience in the tobacco industry. Born in Cuba, Fuego was brought up within the traditions of his family and even studied at the University of Havana.
HC Series Connecticut features a tri-country blend of Costa Rican, Mexican, and Nicaraguan tobaccos. The Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper is seamless and soft to the touch. The three-country blend makes for complex flavors of cashews, cedar, and cream that round out a fantastic mild-medium bodied smoke.
