This La Hoja Edicion Clasica 1962 is a box pressed milk chocolate colored beauty. Silky as it gets to the touch with minimal veins and some slightly visible seams.


Aroma – Cedar and Cream

Type of Cut – Straight

Cold Draw – Cedar and Mineral

After Toast:

First Third – Some cream mixed with nuts and a sage like herbaceous note followed by an earthy finish starts this smoke off. The burn is sharp and ash holds.

Second Third – The cream, nuts and herbaceous notes held through the transition however that cream note gets thicker and buttery and intermingles with a subtle spice. Nice change of pace. The finish is rich earth. The burn remains sharp and ash fell at the 2.25-inch mark.

Final Third – The cream, nuts and cedar notes hold this third down with the subtle spice and earthy finish continuing through the finish. The burn remains sharp.

Suggested Pairing:

Scotch – Johnnie Walker Platinum

Wine – Protea Chenin Blanc

Overall Experience:

We thought this La Hoja Edicion Clasica 1962 was a good consistent cigar through and through. Lots of nice notes that carried the length of the smoke with a few surprises to keep the palate entertained. Loved the sage component in this smoke. I would buy this again if I came across it.
