Cigar Review: Plasencia Cosecha 146 La Vega Robusto
Over the last year or so, we've smoked and reviewed almost every Plasencia cigar we could get our hands on. And today, we're diving into the Plasencia Cosecha 146 La Vega Robusto, a cigar meant to commemorate the 146th crop the Plasencia family planted in Nicaragua.
After taking the Cosecha 146 out of the cellophane, I immediately thought the cigar was very well made; it looked amazing. I was also greeted with a very fragrant cigar that smelled of wood and cedar. The v-cut provided a nice draw with a cold draw that might've had a tiny hint of citrus.
In the first third, the flavors are spicey with lots of cedar flavors. And, after the cigar heated up, the draw became a little tight.
Line: Cosecha 146
Size: 5 1/4 X 52
Price: $12.00 – Good Cigar Co
Wrapper: Honduran Habano
Filler: Nicaragua, Honduras
Smoke Time: 80 minutes
There were nice complexities in flavor with both sweetness from the Nicaraguan tobacco tempered with the smoothness of the Honduran filler tobacco, but with hints of spice from the Honduran Habano wrapper. The burn was even, but the draw was a little tight.
Overall, the flavors were really good. In the final third, the flavors became more smokey and roasted as opposed to the cedar I tasted earlier in the cigar. I enjoyed the Plasencia Cosecha 146 La Vega Robusto, and it earns a CigarScore 5.
