Cigar Reveal #195
The HVC Selección No.1, though unimpressive in appearance, surprises with a complex flavor profile. Aromas of sweet licorice and wood set the stage, while the cold draw hints at Nicaraguan tobacco with milk chocolate, red pepper, and lemon notes, albeit somewhat muted. Upon lighting, it offers sweet cedar, chocolate, earthiness, and a potent red chili pepper accent. As it progresses, strength intensifies, becoming notably high by the halfway point. The final third brings out cedar and chocolate more prominently, but the nicotine kick can be overwhelming. Overall, it's a flavorful, robust cigar that may impress seasoned enthusiasts but demands caution due to its strength.
