When assessing the potential for any new Cosecha Vintage, I first determine the conditions, yields and specific qualities of that year’s Tobacco crop in Nicaragua. In 2015, I discovered an excellent and Cosecha worthy crop, albeit with a stronger tobacco than recent years, so I identified and worked with this characteristic allowing for the strongest Cosecha Vintage history.
The primary challenge was blending a stronger, yet beautifully balanced Cosecha Cigar. This required an adjustment in Jalapa tobaccos to help smooth and offset the power, yet still providing a very pleasant full-bodied blend without sacrificing the complexity of its flavors.
Blending any Mombacho Cigar involves identifying & leveraging the unique cha racteristics of each crop, then highlighting the soul and profile of each Tobacco in the blend. This makes for an extremely difficult task, but this is the true spirit of a Cosecha Vintage Cigar!
Cosecha 2015 is the strongest Cosecha Vintage to date witha full-bodied profile sharing notes of dark chocolate, hearth and subtle wood tones.
