Plasencia Reserva 1898 Robusto
Plasencia Reserva 1898 Robusto vaunts its goodness in every way. The leaves are derived from the finest tobaccos grown in Nicaragua and Honduras. The result is a full-flavored delight, with chocolate notes hitting the palate at first. This flavor profile is laced with hints of walnut, dried figs, and leather, followed by subtle notes of pepper.
This thing is bordering on Colorado or Rosado. Without a band, You would never guess this to be an African Cameroon-wrapped cigar. It’s not even particularly even, with some dark mottling, veins, and a pale section (even this is darker than normal) that follows the seam up the length of the cigar. The foot of the cigar is pretty spongey, but it’s solid elsewhere.
The band is nicer than the other Plasencia Reserva bands, but it is still just a rectangular piece of white paper. There’s very little embossing (just a hint of it on the brand name), no die-cut shape, and no extravagant artwork or design. There are some holographic gold stripes, but otherwise, it’s fairly plain. The white and gold scheme kind of brings to mind Davidoff imagery, which (considering the price) this cigar is clearly aiming for.
