On the recommendation of my cigar-smoking doctor (...true story...), I signed up to go to a HVC smoker next month. Dinner, drinks and a sampler pack included. I’ve never had an HVC cigar but wondering if other members have tried them and what their thoughts are.

I've had a La Rosa 520 I liked a lot, a special edition 2015 I liked OK, and a Black Friday 2018 yet to be lit.

Seems like a decent brand overall from what I've read and what little I've experienced personally

Their 2016 and 2017 Black Fridays are delicious.

Thanks for the quick input.

Unfortunately I’ve already missed out on the Black Friday releases. Sad

After reading about the different blends, before we go, I’m tossing around the idea of getting 5ers of:

EE 2018 Corona
La Rosa 520 Favoritos
Vieja Cosecha No. 2

At the event, there will be a Hawaii exclusive, Serie A Robusto...but can’t find any info on that blend. Anyone know what kind of wrapper is used on this frontmark?

Not a clue..........but since you send me all your Hawaii exclusive stuff I'll let you know what it is and if I like it.

I do not think I have ever had an HVC or any hawaiian exclusive.

Do they have the subtle flavor of Pineapple and Spam?

Pulled the trigger. Ordered the 5ers plus a couple of JRE Aladino Cazador and Elegante 5ers.

No worries if you need to keep your secrets, just on the lookout for a new PCP.

Not my secret...I understand he doesn’t want anyone taking his picture at anything cigar related. At the two Fuente events I’ve seen him at, he stands in line early, buys boxes of Opus X, talks story for a few minutes and then leaves. Doesn’t stay to smoke, drink or eat dinner.

But seriously, if you’re looking for a new doctor, lemme know.
