The Plasencia Cosecha 149 Azacualpa is the first line made by Plasencia using tobaccos exclusively from Honduras. The tobaccos used come from the 149th crop, harvested in 2014, and have been aged for seven years before rolling. It delivers a bold smoke. The flavor profile is deep and complex. The strength is medium to full, and it is under control from the first to the last puff.

The opening delivers earthy notes, together with vegetal and roasted aromas. Further into the smoke, there is also a rich coffee bean flavor supported by spices, with the cardamom standing out. Nutty and chocolaty notes are added in the second half. The finale is a blast of spices.

HOW ARE THE AWARDS MADE?

Those who scored the highest among the cigars tested during the year in blind tastings and reviews get re-selected. These products are then tested once again in a new blind tasting, which means not knowing what they are during the tasting. The test results are then compared, and the TOP 5 are created.

Since 2015, CigarsLover Magazine has focused on terroirs in order to give the right space to all the producing countries. From 2018, the TOP 5 were paired with the TOP 50, which lists the 50 best cigars without distinction of origin. Together with the Best Brands, the Best Buy, and the best Boutique Brands, this list will be published in CigarsLover Magazine issue #5.
