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.
Scotch – Johnnie Walker Platinum
Wine – Protea Chenin Blanc
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.
