Selling like hot cakes.

Or that’s the hope at least. It’s also the inspiration behind the latest cigar from HVC Cigars, Pan Caliente, Spanish for hot cakes. The 5 x 50 robusto’s name is drawn from the Spanish phrase se vende como pan caliente, or selling like hot cakes.

HVC Pan Caliente

The cigar is made with two-year-old Nicaraguan tobacco from AGANORSA, including a criollo 98 wrapper. It’s rolled at Raíces Cubanas in Honduras.

Retail price will be $6.20 per cigar or $155 per box of 25 and the cigars are expected to begin shipping on April 25.
