HVC is bringing a new cigar to the PCA 2022 trade show. HVC Selección No. 1 is the first cigar to come out of their new factory, Fábrica de Tabacos HVC S.A., that opened in Estelí, Nicaragua four months ago. The new boutique factory has 5 pairs of rollers and work exclusively on HVC cigars.
The HV Selección No. 1 blend uses a Mexican San Andres Maduro wrapper, and binder and fillers from Jalapa and Estelí. The new line will launch in three sizes: Poderosos 6 x 54, Short Robustos 4½ x 52, and Esenciales 5 5/8 x 46. The packaging is an homage to the old classic Cuban style, going back to Reinier Lorenzo’s Havana roots. Pricing has not been announced yet.
