There are cigars made for just about every holiday imaginable, including a made-up retail holiday.

For the fifth consecutive year, HVC Cigars will release a cigar for Black Friday, the U.S. shopping holiday that takes place the day after Thanksgiving.

As has been the case the last three years, the HVC Black Friday 2019 will be a smaller cigar, this time a 4 1/2 x 52 petit robusto. The Nicaragua puro uses a habano café wrapper over a binder from Estelí and corojo and criollo 98 fillers.

Pricing is set at $6.50 per cigar and it is limited to 400 boxes of 50 cigars, over twice as many cigars produced as last year.
