Tasting Notes: The First Third opens with sourdough pretzel, tangy dried peach, red pepper, a hint of lemon, oak, vanilla, then BOOM tonka bean, chocolate. Second Third I get waxy, creamy, smoke that reminds me of the rind on a hard cheese. I get a little brie cheese too, these are phantom flavors. This is much more subtle. Chocolate, dried thyme, tonka bean or vanilla are dominant notes. But I also get oak, red pepper, and cinnamon heat with dried fruit tartness peeking back in from the first third, though not as strong. There is lemon zest on the tip of my tongue, and apple on the finish. The final third brings lemon, oak, black pepper, cream, must, and ginger! There are beautiful notes of oak, lemon, leather, vanilla and root beer, and the retrohale is a spicy red pepper.

Paring Notes: Brie cheese and crackers. Hershey’s Kiss one hour before smoking. Red root beer or cream soda. Soft pretzel with spicy brown mustard. Lemon meringue or key lime pie. Orange creamsicle. Hotdogs with mustard and sauerkraut. Over-proof bourbon for likeness, aged rum for contrast. Amber lager beers. Earl Gray tea.

Description

La Palina. The company is so underrated. They make cigars with some of the best people in our industry. They have been in business for 125 years. They are owned by Bill Paley. His father William, who very much had a hand in the business, created a little company called Columbia Broadcast Service or CBS. You heard me. Bill does not need to be in the cigar game. But his passion keeps him smoking! La Palina makes a cigar called the Bronze Label. Some of you who are deep enough in this have had the cigar, which is fantastic. But there was once a Lancero they released, and everyone’s heads exploded. When La Palina asked if we wanted to do a collaboration I said yes, but…I need that Bronze Label Lancero, and I want to give it a third band and call it Bronze Age. While I did not like the position of the third band, it is certainly cool and set this cigar apart in its limited nature. You won’t find this in a shop or online. Only Privada members get this one.

    Privada Cigar Club’s La Palina Bronze Label Bronze Age lancero. Tight cold draw that was fixed with the PerfecDraw. Great cigar! A bit of pepper to start. The flavors really started to shine about a half inch in. Leather and dried fruit, maybe apricot or peaches, vanilla, and citrus. Very creamy and perfect burn throughout.
