Cigar Review | La Hoja Edición Clasica 1962 No. 2

It’s Stog o’Clock, and this time, I check out the La Hoja Edición Clasica 1962 in the No. 2 size. This 5.25×54 Belicoso features an Ecuadorian Corojo wrapper with a Dominican binder and fillers from the Dominican Republic and Nicaragua. This is an exceptionally beautiful, classy-looking cigar. It retails for $11.50.

The wrapper produces a salty leather aroma while I smell fruity cedar out of the foot. On the cold draw, I pick up vegetal earth. Once lit, the cigar gives me bold black pepper, spicy leather, and a rich earth and coffee combo. Through the nose, I find creamy coffee and spice. The finish offers more black pepper with spicy cinnamon and bold earth.

After half an hour, the first third closes out. On the draw, I pick up salty leather with black pepper. The retro-hale gives me coffee with graham cracker and spicy cinnamon. I find a tasty, tart cherry on the finish alongside earth and leather. Strength and body settle in at the medium-to-full mark.

One hour in, the second third wisps away. I pick up toast on the draw with more black pepper and the introduction of char. Floral earth and coffee come through the nose. On the finish, I find more tart cherry alongside meaty oak and wheat. Strength and body remain at a steady medium-to-full.

The final third gets me to one hour and thirty minutes. I’m given more toast and black pepper on the draw with some salty espresso. The retro-hale offers more coffee with black pepper and citrus. Spicy cinnamon dominates the finish with underlying wheat and tart cherry. Both strength and body jump to a hefty full.

The La Hoja Edición Clasica 1962 No. 2 is a fantastic cigar. It offers a great deal of complexity with enjoyable flavors that work very well together. I would even go as far as saying this is one of the best Dominican-made cigars I’ve ever smoked. I highly recommend trying this one out.

Smoke on!
