The Serie A line of HVC Cigars owes its name to the use of “Grade A” tobaccos, referring to the classification from the Aganorsa cultivation, where tobaccos are grown for these cigars. They are produced at the TABSA factory, in Estelì (Nicaragua). The line consists of three cigars: in addition to the Perla (a corona like vitola), a Robusto and a Cañonazo are also produced. The cigars are sold in ten-count boxes.
The wrapper is shiny, with a brownish Colorado tone. To the touch, it is quite smooth, with small veins present. The filling is good, while the draw appears a bit open. Good manufacturing overall.

HVC Serie A Perla: the nose captures an intense aroma of ripe fruit, enriched with nuances of spices and wood.
The HVC Serie A Perla is a very particular cigar and, above all, very changeable. The opening could discourage even continuing smoking it if it were not for the vibrant flavors. However, the balance suffers a bit, with the bitterness being very pronounced, then equal with the sapidity in the last minutes. The last third, then, with its marked metallic note, greatly destabilizes the balance. A very rich flavor component, a good evolution, and the right balance between strength and aromas hang on the other side of the scale.
