First third – Flavor of pepper blast the palate out of the gate with an earthy note. The pepper settles down and a nice spice and cocoa mix with the earthy note. Burn was slightly jagged. Ash is medium gray. Fell off a half inch in due to some wind.
Second Third – Flavors of earth and spice continue in this third along with a deep espresso note. A slight anise flavor on the finish as well. Burn is pristine. Ash went another two inches in this third.
Final Third – Earth, spice and espresso are the main notes with an underlying cedar component. Burn remained perfect.
The La Herencia Cubana is a great cigar for the money. This was a real rich meaty stick that pushed the palate to the extreme. It was a strong cigar so I wouldn’t recommend for beginners. All in all, another AJ Fernandez gem.
