The HVC 500 Years Anniversary is nice in hand and firm throughout. The wrapper has this unique coloring and it is a very light Colorado. There is a touch of Natural to it as well, and there are noticeable veins present throughout. They are dark in coloring, right around Maduro, but don’t impact the texture of the wrapper. There is a little bit of tooth present with the wrapper and it is smooth, leathery to the touch. I am picking up notes of bread, nuts, tobacco and barnyard, and there is a focus of soft cocoa and walnuts to the cigar.
