HVC Pan Caliente

Next up is a cigar we’ve recently discovered and cannot get enough of. The HVC Pan Caliente is a gem that comes from the minds of master blender Reinier Lorenzo and Aganorsa Leaf. Lorenzo perfected his rolling and blending skills in his hometown of Havana City in Cuba (hence the name HVC). “Pan Caliente”, which means “warm bread” was to insinuate that this cigar is so good, that it will fly off the shelves like “hot cakes” aka “warm bread”.

This medium-bodied Nicaraguan puro utilizes Criollo ’98 tobaccos for the wrapper, binder, and filler. With melodic layers of raisin, espresso, hay, cedar, and hints of peppery spice, the HVC Pan Caliente would be a perfect nightcap smoke right after you’ve downed a few hot dogs and beers!

Other than the 5 x 50 Robusto that’s featured in this Top 5 Labor Day Cigars of 2021, the HVC Pan Caliente is also available in a Toro and a Double Corona, that come in a box of 25.

If you’re looking for a delicious Nicaraguan puro that is completely under the radar, then the HVC Pan Caliente is a cigar you need to try ASAP!

Perla del Mar Corojo

Last, but certainly not least, is a cigar that hails from Cuba, and is now a part of the extensive, creative portfolio that is JC Newman cigars. The Perla del Mar Corojo rounds out our Top 5 Labor Day Cigars, and rounds it out with a bang!

This resurrected old-style Cuban brand is a Nicaraguan puro that uses vintage Corojo tobaccos for the wrapper, as well as other tobaccos that hail from Esteli, Condega, and the Jalapa Valley. This medium to full-bodied gem has delicious flavor notes of coffee, leather, cinnamon, and a creamy smooth finish that’s an extraordinary treat for your palate.

The 6.25 x 54 Toro that’s in this pack isn’t the on;y size that Perla del Mar Corojo provides. You have three additional sizes, that all come in a box of 25. So if you’re looking for yet another Nicaraguan puro that isn’t on the mainstream radar, look no further.
