Personal Cigar Review: HVC Serie A Famous Exclusivo

Personal Cigar Review: HVC Serie A Famous Exclusivo

The flavor profile of the HVC Serie A Famous Exclusivo was fairly muddled throughout and didn't do anything to really maintain my attention. The cigar was about on par with the Perlas vitola I had reviewed earlier. The price point is attractive, but I just don't see it as a cigar I'd really come back to.

Team Cigar Review: HVC 10th Anniversary

Once again, HVC puts out a good cigar with the HVC 10th Anniversary that delivers a range of flavors and nuance keeping me engaged for the majority of the review experience. I will add this to the pile of blends Reinier Lorenzo has put out that I would happy to return to.

Team Cigar Review: HVC Black Friday Firecracker

Team Cigar Review: HVC Black Friday Firecracker

The HVC Black Friday Firecracker packed a significant amount of flavor complexity, given the small size that it had to work with. It was also easily the strongest HVC that I've ever smoked, and even though I'm very used to smoking cigars at the full end of the spectrum, the HVC hit me solidly with strength at a few points.

Team Cigar Review: HVC 500 Years Anniversary Selectos

Team Cigar Review: HVC 500 Years Anniversary Selectos

The HVC 500 Years Anniversary Selectos had some enjoyable complexity in the first third, and while I found the middle and last thirds to be pleasant, they lacked the same complexity that would elevate the experience to a good rating. For an anniversary cigar, I was anticipating more complexity, as HVC has managed to deliver on these type of releases in the past.

Team Cigar Review: HVC Hot Cake Corona Gorda

Team Cigar Review: HVC Hot Cake Corona Gorda

I really wish the start to the HVC Hot Cake Corona Gorda would have maintained itself throughout as we'd then be talking about a really special cigar. The price point is quite attractive and I'd be willing to come back to this just for what the first inch provided. Definitely something I'd recommend people check out.

Team Cigar Review: HVC 500 Years Anniversary

I was incredibly pleased with the HVC 500 Years Anniversary and would consider it one of their best cigars. In some ways, he truly created a cigar that honors Havana. With wonderful packaging and aging potential, this is a cigar to buy boxes of to smoke now and age.

Personal Cigar Review: HVC First Selection Limited Edition Broadleaf Toro

Personal Cigar Review: HVC First Selection Broadleaf Toro

This is what Broadleaf over Nicaraguan tobacco is all about. The HVC First Selection Broadleaf Toro is complex while showing transitioning and smoking at a medium-full level. You can't ask for more out of a Broadleaf release.

Team Cigar Review: HVC Serie A Perlas

Team Cigar Review: HVC Serie A Perlas

Like the majority of HVC's offerings, the HVC Serie A Perlas is yet another good example of a solid cigar. The use of quality Aganorsa tobacco honestly speaks for itself. The flavors of sweet buttered bread, nuts, fresh red pepper spice, barnyard, cedar and tannins were great, especially within the first third in which the profile was direct and focused.

Team Cigar Review: HVC Edicion Especial 2018 Corona

Team Cigar Review: HVC Edicion Especial 2018 Corona

This HVC Edicion Especial 2018 Corona is Aganorsa Corojo done right and what I love about a well made Aganorsa cigar. The flavor count was pretty crazy, nearing ten. It's not just that the number of flavors were many, but the flavors worked very well together.
