First Third – A nice chocolate and spice like note comes hard right out of the gate with some pepper on the finish. A few minutes in the peppery finish adds an anise like note. The burn is sharp and ash holds through the third.
Second Third – This third is interesting with lots of woody notes, some dark fruits and spice then back to that peppery mixed with anise like finish. Nice transition. Burn is sharp and ash fell at the halfway point.
Final Third – The final third goes to sweet spice, oak and holds that peppery anise like finish. Great smoke. The burn finished sharp.

This La Hoja Signature Series was a great full bodied smoke experience. Got lucky with this find as I was just walking through Miami Beach and found a new cigar lounge. They happened to have this brand there and we got to meet the owner. Really nice guy who you could see was passionate about his product. He recommended this one and what a great first impression and introduction to his brand. I would recommend giving this a try and personally I can’t wait to try the rest of the line!
