Black Friday is all about finding those incredible deals that are genuinely valuable. Not dumped crap they should pay YOU to take – we’re talking about something you want being discounted and impossible to resist.
Each year, that’s what HVC Black Friday cigars are all about.
The blend is changed annually to showcase the best of the past growing seasons. In 2021, it was a Nicaraguan blend featuring Connecticut broadleaf. It was a full-flavor blend with notes of charred steak, buttery caramel, and cherries that were just perfect for the holidays. At a time when we’re indulging on the daily, the HVC Black Friday cigar was there to provide us with a suitably rich and decadent Thanksgiving or Christmas cigar.
HVC is again delivering on high expectations with the Black Friday 2022 cigar blend this year. They’ve stayed with Nicaraguan tobacco for the long filler, primarily leaf from Estelí and Jalapa. One interesting choice they’ve made is to skip the usual Ligero and stick only to the middle and lower primings of the tobacco stalk. This takes some of the bite and strength out of the end product, which can be nice if you want to build a complex flavor profile that gives more subtle notes a chance to shine.
HVC founder Reinier Lorenzo is an artiste, you see. Or at least, a bit of a nerd (we use that term positively to indicate his respect for knowledge) when it comes to the details of his stogies.
The Nicaraguan blend is wrapped with an Ecuadorian Habano 92 leaf, which offers the special touch you need on a holiday cigar. You can’t just wrap it with any old thing – you need something rarer that shines like the star atop the tree.
Hold the HVC up to Rudolph’s nose and get it lit for a delightful winter flavor mix. It comes off as a caramel eggnog with just a bit of fun sharpness and spice from cinnamon, pepper, and nutmeg. You’ll love this one on a fantastic evening as you step outside for a break from loud family fun in the house.
