Like the burn, the draw was amazing. It was to my liking and presented no problems throughout. A nice bit of smoke was produced with each draw and you could not ask for more from a cigar.
The HVC First Selection Limited Edition 2018 Broadleaf Short Robusto was a spectacular cigar and a beautiful surprise. It has been sometime since I have had a Connecticut Broadleaf over Nicaraguan tobacco blend that has smoked like this, and it makes me want more. I have always been tough on Connecticut Broadleaf releases, but it is releases like this that have received my praise. It was full in strength and body, but also full flavored. There was complexity and depth, and the transitioning was fantastic. Construction was perfect and you could not ask for more out of a cigar. It got hot down at the nub, but 90%+ was fantastic. It is great to see a release like this out of the AGANORSA facilities, and I hope to see more like this in the future. They have shown that they can master tobaccos like Connecticut Broadleaf, Mexican San Andres and Ecuadorian Connecticut Shade over their tobacco, and it makes me hope for a Sumatra release in the future.
