Havana City Cigars (HVC) creates Nicaraguan puros that mimic the construction and quality of Cuban classics. The Cerro Corojo takes its name from El Cerro, one of the oldest neighborhoods in Havana. I tasted very bitter tobacco notes on the cold draw. The torch flame released a wave of cedar and spice in the first third. Cedar continued through the midpoint, along with splashes of leather. Then a turn occurred, steering the profile into wheat bread followed by wood. The Cerro needs some additional aging to allow the flavors to mature.
