The City of Havana Cuba is celebrating its 500th anniversary. Now HVC Cigars, a brand that pays homage to the city, is honoring that milestone with its HVC 500th Anniversary release.
The cigar itself features Aganorsa farm tobaccos from Nicaragua including a Corojo ’99 wrapper, binder from Jalapa and a mix of Criollo ’98 and Corojo ’99 grown in Jalapa and Estelí. The cigar comes in one size – a 5 7/8 x 52 Tesoros.
The official day Havana was founded is November 16th, 1519. The cigars are expected to be available later this year.
