After Toast:

First Third – Notes of chocolate, tangy cedar and a leather peppery finish. The flavor of the cedar and leather really make for a rich full bodied dry experience once this stick gets going. Nice solid gray ash. Burn went a little wavy.

Second Third – ​This transition turns to a nutty note mixed with the leathery flavors that lingers on the palate.

Final Third – The flavor goes to straight leather in the finish. Some of that tangy cedar is there but the leather over powers the finish.

Suggested Pairing:

Scotch – Johnny Walker Double Black

Wine – Domaine Carneros Avant Garde Pinot Noir

Overall Experience:

The Plasencia 146 Cosecha was a fairly simple flavor profile with minimal transitions. The cigar was consistent all the way through. If someone gave me one of these I would have it again, but for the price I would not go out and specifically search for another one.
