It seemed like only a matter time before HC Series became a crowd favorite. So far, HC Series' foray into the cigar industry has gone fairly well. HC Series earned '91' and '92' ratings from Cigar Aficionado and earned Top 25 Best Cigar accolades for 2008 and '09. Not a bad start, huh?
While the original HC Series Habano set the table for the burgeoning cigar line, their expansion to the Habano2 is what propelled them to stardom. Handcrafted in Estelí, Nicaragua, the blend features Sumatran, Nicaraguan, and Honduran long-fillers that make a smooth, but not soft, smoking experience. A medium to full-bodied blend with some beef in the broth, it's the oily Habano 2000 wrapper that deserves the spotlight of this stunner. When applied over the savory long-leaf beneath, the end result is a richly complex, rewarding cigar. Nutty nuances ebb and flow, enabling an underscore of cayenne & cocoa with a luxurious leathery finish.
