HVC has announced a new regular production line shipping this month: Hot Cake. Hot Cake will begin shipping July 22nd in three vitolas: Corona Gorda (46 x 5 5/8) $7.40, Laguito #5 (54 x 6) $9.00, and Laguito #4 (52 x 4 ½) $8.00.
Hot Cake, like all other HVC cigars, is rolled at TABSA. The blend starts with a San Andres wrapper from Mexico, followed by Jalapa Corojo 99 binder, and fillers that includes Esteli Corojo 98 and 3 different varieties of a newer tobacco called Corojo 2006 Maduro. This Corojo 2006 Maduro uses viso priming form that plant which HVC President/Founder/Blender Reinier Lorenzo says “gives it a super rich flavor with a ton of sweetness.” He also notes that the uniqueness in the flavor of this blend comes from the Jalapa Corojo 99 and Esteli Corojo 98 both grown from Aganorsa Farms.
