PLASENCIA COSECHA 149 | CIGAR REVIEW

JULY 31, 2022 - PHIL KURUT, COMEDY - CIGARS - MUSIC


PLASENCIA COSECHA 149 LA AZACUALPA (6 x 52)

WRAPPER: HONDURAS

BINDER: HONDURAS

FILLER: HONDURAS

Cosecha 149 begins a bit on the questionable side for me. Earth, dirt, and some subtle sweetness. The finish has some dirty coffee, a touch of leather, and some spice.


The retrohale flows with some dirty earth and leather.


I used the word “questionable” at the beginning due to it being my experience that most cigars that start off with dirt end up being relatively boring journeys. Not judging yet, but it’s been my experience. We shall see.


Excellent draw and smoke output.


Fast-forward, and the dirt moves in and out. Everything else from before is still at the party, and some subtle sweet tea comes in every now and then.


Fairly solid ash so far. The burn tends to get wavy but nothing crazy. I guess I could have said cray cray, but that’s…never mind.

Wood, spice, and sweetness pour from the foot smoke. That’s nice.


Well, the dirt has gone, so that’s something. The draw brings in earth, very mild coffee, some bits of fruit every so often, and sweetness.


Coffee swims through the nose. Backstroke. Spice follows behind in the subtle waves.


The finish walks by the pool with some coffee, tea, leather, and there is a bit of dirt left there. Clean your shoes before you enter the pool. Common courtesy.


A small burn touch-up keeps things moving along a tad more smoothly.


Side note. I dig the bands. They’re cool.

Another burn touch-up is required to clear a stubborn wave.


A bit of plum begins to lead the pack as coffee and earth follow. Coffee strongly holds on to earth, traveling together through my nostrils. Might be holding hands.


Coffee and dirty earth make up the finish.


I waited until the end to confirm what I predicted at the beginning. I guess that’s how predictions tend to work. Anyway. I’m a little bored.

SMOKE TIME: 1 hr. 27 mins.


RATING: 2.5 / 4 - I might be related to Nostradamus.
