Xikar for a long time was only known for their lifetime guaranteed high-end cigar accessories, until several years ago when they started producing their own high-end cigars with several 90+ ratings and even making Cigar Aficionado’s Top 25 Cigars of the Year! The band on the cigar features palm trees that are meant to represent the El Corojo farm in Cuba where the style of tobacco used in this cigar was developed. The HC Series Blue Barber Pole is not only a winner in our book but it’s a truly stunning cigar. On the inside is a blend of premium Nicaraguan long-fillers and a Nicaraguan binder leaf. On the outside there are two wrapper leaves, Connecticut and Maduro, wrapped in a barber pole style to create not only a stunning look but a stunning flavor profile. Medium in body, this smoke will lend notes of pepper and espresso with occasional hints of that classic maduro sweetness. A mouth-watering treat from start to finish, try pairing it with a dark roast coffee.

The Nicaraguan cigar industry originated when Cuban cigar makers escaped the revolution and re-established their livelihood in Nicaragua with Cuban-seed tobacco. Blessed with dark, rich soil, their new home was ideal for tobacco cultivation and Nicaragua quickly became known for cigars that rivaled Cuban quality. Unfortunately, revolution and war came to Nicaragua in the 1980s and devastated the industry, but it’s rebounded dramatically and is once again producing tobacco considered by many to be the finest in the world.

The Esteli Valley is in many ways the heart of Nicaraguan production and is known for its very powerful and spicy tobacco. The Jalapa Valley produces arguably the finest tobacco in the country: somewhat sweeter and less intense than Esteli, but extremely complex. The tobacco of the Condega Valley is often described as a blend of the other two regions.
