The Xikar HC Series: Habano Colorado Toro

Posted by dabyrdman33 on September 22, 2010

When you hear or read the name Xikar, the first thought that comes to mind is of the top-notch cutters, lighters, and travel humidors that they produce among other accessories. Xikar ventured into producing cigars back in 2007 with the Defiance line in direct response to the increasing cigar-related legislation and taxation issues. Here’s a link to the press release from 2007 and a direct quote from that release, “The DEFIANCE™ cigar brand was created by Xikar in direct response to the ever-growing legislatively & tax based oppression of cigar smokers, retailers and manufacturers in the United States. The DEFIANCE™ brand will seek to unite cigar enthusiasts with a cigar brand whose bold identity & taste promotes the need for an equally bold resistance to the oppressive forces that attempt to destroy timeless traditions.” Since entering the cigar scene with that bold statement back in 2007, Xikar has gone on to partner with Jesus Fuego as master blender on the HC Series. The HC Series comes in three different blends, Habano Colorado (6 vitolas), Connecticut Shade (5 vitolas), and Criollo (4 vitolas). For a more in-depth look at each blend and the different vitolas click

    Sharp review as always! I think I’ve had the Colorado and Criollo and I liked the Criollo better than the Colorado
