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.
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.
