Created from the same blueprint of La Hoja’s best selling Autentico Maduro, the Edicion Clasica both mimics and transcends the experience of the Autentico Maduro. Edicion Clasica features an Ecuadorian Corojo wrapper and San Victor Dominican filler. The heart of the cigar, however, is the Piloto Cubano filler: one of the rarest and most expensive tobaccos currently in production.
To round off the blend, master blenders added a small amount of carefully selected Nicaraguan leaf to add dimension and strength to the cigar.
La Hoja Edicion Maduro 1962
The Edicion Clasica Maduro 1962 features similar Dominican Piloto Cubano and Nicaraguan tobaccos found in the binder and filler of the Edicion Clasica Corojo. What makes the Edicion Clasica Maduro unique, says J Carlos Gomez, Executive VP at La Hoja Cigars, is the carefully selected Mexican San Andreas Maduro wrapper.
“The San Andreas Maduro wrapper gives this blend a sweet and earthy touch,” said Gomez, “but in order for us to incorporate this into a blend that meets La Hoja quality standards, we had to be incredibly discerning about the other leaves to make sure they complement the wrapper.”
The danger of San Andreas Maduro wrappers, Gomez says, is that “that particular leaf can create a smoke that is too dry and that parches the smoker. We’ve blended this cigar specifically to offer the flavor of San Andreas but with considerable balance as well.”
