Notes: The third and final cigar in the HC Series is the Habano Colorado. It is made with a Habano-Colorado Jalapa Valley (Nicaragua) wrapper; an Estelli (Nicaragua) binder; and Costa Rican, Jalapa Nicaraguan, and Honduran fillers. The Wrapper was beautiful with a color I would describe as being between Colorado-Maduro and Maduro, with nice teeth and a silky feel. The pre-light aroma was excellent with obvious chocolate notes. I invested several minutes enjoying it. Again I made a straight cut with the scissors on my Xikar cigar multi-tool (which I recommend for any serious cigar aficionado, it is great). The head held together perfectly with no evidence of fraying or unravelling. The draw gave just the right amount of resistance and left only the slightest sweetness on the lips. Yet again, it lit effortlessly and burned with consistency and evenness. From the first draw the body and strength were evident. Xikar describes it as being medium to full-bodied with moderate strength. I would have to agree, with my opinion being that it is a little more toward the full-bodied side. The spice left a light tingle on the front to middle tongue and the smoke had the same attractive grey-blue color as did the Connecticut Shade and Criollo. I have no doubts the ash would have held on like it did with the others except I accidentally bumped it and made a mess on my computer keyboard, Oh the humanity! Overall, this cigar was consistent throughout and lost none of its fine qualities as it smoked. If you enjoy this style of cigar I recommend you try it. I wish you Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness. The Cap'n uscaptainsblog.blogspot.com

Review Notes: This cigar didn't grab me, as I was hoping it would. It had a tough draw, and the flavors were a bit subuded. Otherwise, it was a good looking cigar, you could tell there was an effort put forth as for it's presentation.

Review Notes: I have smoked several of these over time to be certain the first few were not just the luck of the draw. In all cases, the HC has performed beautifully. Good draw, earthy and creamy flavors, little or no corrections and long on the smoke...averaging one and a half hours. This is definitely a go-to cigar.

Review Notes: Jesus Fuego did a nice job here. With a little pepper start there's a nice balance of coffee, mocha, cream and leather throughout. It wasn't too complex but enough to pay attention. I had the robusto and picked up a Belicoso. I'll review that when I get around to smoking it.
