HVC Broadleaf Review

Founded in 2011 by Reinier Lorenzo HVC was started as a way of paying homage to Havana City, where Reinier lived for most of his life. The HVC goal is to keep the Cuban tradition of hand-made cigars alive and well with products that are inspired by the cigar tradition of Cuba, specifically Havana City, while incorporating the customs of their adopted U.S. home. On today’s show we fire up one of the hottest brands from HVC, the HVC Broadleaf which as you would guess features a wrapper from Connecticut. Be an Ash Hole by joining the Ash Holes as we share our thoughts on the burn, taste and aroma before we close up the show with a rating from each of our hosts as we give a final score. Along the way we will have all the craziness of The Ash Holes including a Top 5 list from our friends at 55 Cigars.

Toscano 1492 Anno Domini Review

As we approach Columbus Day we decide to light up the Toscano 1492 Anno Domini cigar which was launched as a limited edition in 2007. It was a success, but it wasn't until 2013 that it became possible to source the same type of tobacco of the highest quality from Tennessee and so offer the 100% pure American tobacco cigar on a continuous basis. And it is precisely the use of these premium Tennessee tobaccos that inspires its name and creation: a tribute to the discovery of America. Be an Ash Hole by joining the Ash Holes as we share our thoughts on the burn, taste and aroma before we close up the show with a rating from each of our hosts as we give a final score.
