Since our friends rolled out the HC Series brand, they've had a parade of stellar ratings, so what mountain was left to climb? They decided to develop a new collection of cigars specifically for the budget-minded. The introduction of HC Series Red Corojo met with wild success and Black Maduro was a hit as well. The next logical addition? Welcome the HC Series White Shade Grown!
As you might guess, White Shade Grown begins with a silky-smooth, golden Connecticut Shade wrapper. Underneath is a raft of long-fillers hailing from Nicaragua, which raises the body into the mellow-medium range. A leathery character remains throughout the entire experience, while notes of cedar, spices, pepper and a hint of caramel weave their way in and out. A satiny sweet creaminess highlights the finish - mellow and satisfying. Compare HC Series White Shade Grown to those $5 to $6 a stick Connecticuts you've been smoking and you'll wonder where they've been all your life.
