Episode 445: Nat Cicco HHB Gold


BACKGROUND: Appearing in 2012, Nat Cicco’s Aniversario 1965 named the HHB Habano celebrated the creation date of the Rejects. The HHB Habano featured connoisseur touches such as extra aging, a pigtail cap, a wrapper-enclosed foot and high-quality Spanish cedar box.


Most recently in 2015, Zander-Greg introduced the HHB Gold to not only replace the HHB Habano, but also to honor the 50th anniversary of the Nat Cicco line of cigars. HHB Gold’s blend starts with an Ecuadorian-grown Habano leaf that surrounds a Nicaraguan filler and binder. The cigars come in three sizes and are presented 10 cigars per box. The cigar I’m featuring today is the 5.25-inch by 56 ring gauge HHB Gold Robusto Grande.
