Forget dusty tomes or boring lectures, the Plasencia Cosecha 146 La Vega cigar is history itself distilled into the best kind of lesson, one you can experience and enjoy for yourself. Cultivating the finest tobaccos since 1865, generations of Plasencia’s have risen from humble Cuban beginnings to become the world’s largest grower with vast farms in Nicaragua and Honduras. Despite being responsible for producing millions of delectable cigars annually for a wide variety of brands, the family stays connected to its roots which is how it knows the aged longleaf in this premium stick is from their 146th Cosecha, or harvest, back in 2011-12. With its two-country blend of expertly-crafted filler, each juicy vitola is finished with a Nicaraguan binder and gorgeous golden-brown wrapper from the Jamastran valley in Honduras.

Three distinct yet understated silver and gray bands serve to identify the frontmark, but the densely packed barrel of the cigar is truly the star of the show. With an aroma like sourwood honey, the well-fermented outer layer of each 5 1/4” X 52 Plasencia Consecha 146 La Vega is oily and smooth beneath the fingertips while providing the tongue a mild tingle of spice. Woody and rich from the start, the smoke which pours over the palate carries bright fresh-brewed espresso, toasted cedar, leather, and more than a hint of dark fruit. Time will seem to slow alongside the burn as it reaches the midpoint and beyond, providing a vanilla buttercream sweetness to float atop deeper currents of earthy dark cocoa, anise, and orange peel, plus a whisper of chai tea in the retrohale to let you know this cigar is something special.

Far more than just a tribute to the family’s legacy, the Plasencia Cosecha 146 La Vega Robusto Gordo is the 93-rated #19 Cigar of 2020 suitable for any enthusiast looking for full-bodied complexity in a medium-strength smoke, along the lines of the Alec Bradley Black Market or Rocky Patel Vintage 1992. We recommend keeping more than a few of these deliciously amazing sticks on hand at all times, because you never know when an emergency celebration, important announcement, or great first impression might be called for. Although, savoring one after takeout on a Thursday night works too.
