Tasting Notes: Sweet hay and honey on the body. Toasted cereal on the foot. Dried apricots, hay, and saltiness on the cold draw. The cigar starts out with sweet cereal, toast, cream, honey, espresso, leather, and a perfect retro with just enough kick. Sweet cream, honey, cereal, herbs, leather, and pepper envelop the palate and create bliss. In the second third, it becomes even more creamy and the floral notes burst! I also start to get mesquite charcoal and more leather with espresso or black coffee and a faint citrus rhine as a phantom flavor. It’s salty, savory, woody, creamy, and floral. The leather is gorgeous. WOW WOW WOW. Toasted bread, salt wood, and spice, along with cream, and cereal finish this bad boy out. HVC is a threat. If they keep this up they may take over our industry.
Pairing Notes: Any bourbon. Almost any beer except IPA. Jack Daniels all the way. Cognac and Rum of course. There really is not much I would not try with this but you don’t want to kill any of this flavor, so stay away from tart, sour, or bitter things. Cafe con leche/coffee with cream and sugar all day! After steak, Mexican, or most Asian cuisines. After an ice cream sundae with vanilla ice cream and chocolate fudge with peanuts.
PLEASE show some love to @hvccigars for doing this for us. HVC is one of us. #weareprivada
