  • Black Friday 2022 (5 1/2 x 50)
  • Black Friday 2023 (4 1/2 x 56)

“This year we went heavier on the Jalapa region to create a unique blend with only visos and secos exclusively select for the 2023 Black Friday.” says HVC owner Reinier Lorenzo.

  • Wrapper: San Andres Maduro Mexico
  • Binder: Nicaragua
  • Filler: Nicaragua
  • MSRP: $9.80 ea. / retail price $4.95

According to HVC in a press release, the cigar delivers unique flavors with fantastic aroma giving you a clean finish on the palate. Covered with San Andres maduro wrapper from Mexico, we called them Petit Gordos 4 ½ x 56. Only 600 boxes of 50 count each were produced this year.

 The cigar was made at Fabrica de Tabacos HVC, SA in Esteli, Nicaragua. The HVC Black Friday will start shipping end of October/beginning of November.
