For the first time, HVC Cigars’ La Rosa 520 will be getting a maduro offering.
HVC has announced that next week it will be sending the HVC La Rosa 520 Maduro, a 4 1/2 x 52, to SmallBatchCigar.com, the online storefront of Maxamar Ultimate Cigars, a retailer in Orange, Calif.
The blend uses a Mexican San Andrés maduro wrapper over a mixture of Nicaraguan fillers from Jalapa. For context, the regular blend is a Nicaraguan puro with a corojo 99 wrapper.
“La Rosa 520 line holds a very special place in my heart,” said Reinier Lorenzo, HVC’s founder, in a statement to halfwheel. “It never fails to bring back memories of my home in Havana City. I’m really happy to welcome Small Batch Cigar to my home and have an exclusive cigar just for them. ”
Pricing is set at $10 per cigar, with production is limited to 300 boxes of 10 cigars.
