First Third – This starts with a salted nutty note followed by a nice oak on the finish. Noticed some baking spices which then turns into a caramel like finish. The burn went a little off course and required a touch up. The ash is dark and flaky but holding strong.
Second Third – Nuts, spice and caramel light up the palate during this third. This is a pretty consistent smoke with not much of a change other than intensity of the flavors. The burn remains wavy.
Final Third – The brûlée like caramel really carries this one to the finish line with a little spicy peppery kick in the end. The burn remains wavy.
Bourbon – Rabbit Hole Sherry Cask
Wine – La Crema Monterey Pinot Noir
The La Palina Bronze Label is a fairly simple smoking experience. This cigar has a good consistent flavor profile especially that caramel note is phenomenal. A true medium bodied experience that I’d have again sometime given the opportunity.
