HVC Cigars will once again release a limited version of its HVC La Rosa 520 Maduro, though it won’t be the same as the last one.
The HVC La Rosa 520 Maduro Limited Edition is a two-vitola release that uses a Mexican San Andrés wrapper over a Nicaraguan binder and Nicaraguan fillers. It is being made at the Tabacos Valle de Jalapa S.A. (TABSA) factory in Estelí. If that sounds familiar, the company released a 4 1/2 x 52 cigar by the same name and with the same basic blend components to SmallBatchCigar.com late last year.
Only the blend isn’t identical. HVC founder Reinier Lorenzo told halfwheel that he was forced to adjust the internal components due to the different sizes.
- HVC La Rosa 520 Maduro Exquisitos (5 3/4 x 46) — $9 (Box of 20, $180)
- HVC La Rosa 520 Maduro Mágicos (5 1/2 x 54) — $12 (Box of 20, $240)
Production is limited to 500 boxes of each size and the cigar is expected to ship following the 2019 IPCPR Convention & Trade Show, which begins June 29 in Las Vegas.
