338. Plasencia 146 Cosecha Privada San Agustín Torpedo

Gifted by Rodrigo Medina, Regional Director at Plasencia.

Location: This review was made indoors in Mellgrens cigar lounge.

Plasencia Cosecha 146 is an exquisite combination of tobacco leaves from our 146th harvest (2011-2012).
The leaves are grown in the best regions of Honduras and Nicaragua to produce a unique flavor profile, resulting from blending the crops of two great tobacco countries.
Wrapper: Honduras.
Binder: Nicaragua.
Filler: Honduras and Nicaragua.

Size: 6.2×52, Torpedo.

Wrapper: Milk chocolate, oily and silky-smooth with tiny veins.

Construction: Firm even feel when lightly squeezed.

Cold draw: Sandalwood.

1st third: Starts with a smooth nutty note followed by sandalwood (light spice but very much still wood).

2nd third: It still has previous flavours but now more prominent there are notes of creamy milk chocolate and whipped cream and a salted caramel twist.

Burn: Burns fairly sharp with a white firm and stable ash.

Smoke: Voluminous smoke, with a cool feeling on the tongue and a little tight draw.

3rd third: Keeps it’s flavours from part 2.

Duration: 20:30-21:50, 1h 20 min.

Conclusion: A mild to medium bodied cigar with a medium strength profile.

Result: In my book this is an 92 point cigar.
