HVC Pan Caliente in Corona Gorda by HVC Cigars

 Honduras, HVC Cigars, HVC Pan Caliente, Nicaraguan Criollo, Nicaraguan Criollo ’98, Raices Cubanas, Reiner Lorenzo This is just another deliciously buttery smooth smoking experience with this HVC Pan Caliente in Corona Gorda by HVC Cigars today.

I think I need to stock up on these Pan Calientes… the “Cubenesque” style of this cigar and the tobacco flavors of cedar, leather, and a touch of cocoa with a decent amount of pepper spice on the retrohale is hitting my “Sweet-Spot”! The constructions of these are impressive too with a razor-sharp burn.

Yes, I’m stocking more in the TupperDor… Stay Tuned!

 Honduras, HVC Cigars, HVC Pan Caliente, Nicaraguan Criollo, Nicaraguan Criollo ’98, Raices Cubanas, Reiner Lorenzo Right from the “Get-Go”, from this HVC Pan Caliente in Corona Gorda by HVC Cigars, Cedar, Earthy Natural Tobacco flavors with slightly Sweetened Hay… and a Soft Pepper Spice on the retrohale.

I’m impressed! I’d say this HVC Pan Caliente was a nice affordable cigar at around $6-Bucks a pop. Although there was nothing this Pan Caliente that made me go Wow, it sure was a dandy in a “Classical” sense… it was just a Damn Good Cigar!

I can’t wait to smoke it again… maybe I should see what the other Vitolas have to offer.
