Until recently, Xikar was only known for their lifetime guaranteed high-end cigar accessories. Then, a few short years ago, Xikar started making its own premium cigar line that over the last few years has had numerous 90+ ratings! The Xikar HC Series Maduro² Belicoso in your shipment today is the follow up to the highly rated Xikar HC Series Habano² featuring the same zesty sumtra binder and hearty blend of long-fillers from Nicaragua and Honduras, but with the addition of a stunning Pennsylvania Broadleaf Maduro wrapper that glistens with oils. Aged and box pressed, this stogie delivers a rich and bold bouquet of subtle sweetness that is medium to full bodied. Enjoy this complex and balanced cigar with a dark rum.
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.
