Review: HC by Xikar

HC by XikarFollowing a pleasant experience with another offering from this brand, I was anxious to try the HC – which stands for “Havana Collection.”

Opening with notes of hay and leather – and featuring a post-light taste of aged cedar – this perfecto has a closed foot and tapered head. The latter was slightly awkward, as the wrapper seemed piecemeal at the top of the cigar.

That said, this stick offers a quick light, steady burn, and ample smoke. Despite one burn through incident that may well have been a fluke, it made for an overall enjoyable smoking experience.
