A decent performance today with this HVC Serie A Perlas (Corona Gorda) by HVC Cigars today at Sellwood Cigar… I was curious to see how the draw would evolve with this cigar since I purchased it about a month ago… now that it’s had time to rest, I was pleasantly happy with it.

Corona Gorda, HVC Cigars, HVC Serie A, Jalapa, Nicaragua, Nicaraguan Corojo 99, Perlas I just had a feeling and knew that there would be a Flavor-Rainbow if I could get the draw to work correctly on this HVC Serie A Perlas (Corona Gorda) by HVC Cigars.

By way of Ed Ryan (Regional HVC Cigar Representative) of Portland, Oregon fame, I was gifted this Serie A Perlas (Corona Gorda) to try again after struggling to get a decent draw from my first purchase. And, I’m really glad he did as I’m trying to vet some of these HVC Cigars for the upcoming HVC Cigar Event at Sellwood Cigar on June 19, 2021.

Anyway, what I had been hoping for; creamy malty cocoa, dark coffee, cinnamon, and subtle sweet vanilla somewhere in the background with loads of White pepper on the retrohale… this HVC Serie A is speaking to me!

Savory and sweet, this cigar has a unique balance of nuanced tobacco flavors, good construction and a perfect burn are my rewards for giving this cigar another try and I’m so happy I did.

More Please!

If it weren’t for the simple fact that this HVC Serie A Perlas (Corona Gorda) by HVC Cigars is a delicious cigar, I wouldn’t have tried so hard to get a decent draw from of this. After talking to some of the Fellas, it appears that this could be a characteristic of this Vitola… let’s hope not!
