PCA 2022: Platinum Nova Cigars and a Nova 484

Believe it or not, Iím nearing the end of the PCA show videos I took. As Iíve said before, Iím not competing with other media sites, I do things my way. Iíve maintained that Iím a blogger first, not a media site, I just love cigars and write stuff about them. I do enjoy doing the video interviews though, itís fun talking to my friends in the cigar industry. My approach to the PCA show this year was casual, yet I had some goals and targeted a select few personalities to interview. I hope youíve enjoyed the videos. This one was with Leo of Platinum Nova cigars, who I first met at the 2020 TPE show. These folks make some really tasty cigars, and their model is one blend/one size, as opposed to having a line with numerous vitolas. Itís an interesting and probably costly way of doing things. The cigars are pricey, but they are really quite good. I like the way this video turned out, I hope you do too.

While I was writing this I decided to smoke the Nova 484 (which I incorrectly described as 4◊44 on the video) that Leo gave me after the 2022 TPE show. As the name indicates, itís 4″ x 48, and comes in a Dominican and Nicaraguan version.The Dominican has an Ecuador H2000 wrapper, Dominican Piloto Cubano binder and Olor Dominicano, while the Nicaraguan Has Ecuador Habano wrapper, Habano Esteli binder and Habano Jalapa filler. My one complaint is that the cigar I am smoking doesnít indicate which one it is, although Iím fairly confident that itís the Nicaraguan. It has a nice sweetness and some coffee flavors, and I like it a lot. I am not a huge fan of Olor, which is why Iím confident in my assumption. Some indication, if even on the barcode sticker, would be nice. The cigar burns perfectly, and was about the perfect size for composing this article. As I said in the interview, Iím fortunate to have time to smoke larger cigars, but once in a while I need something short, and this was a great option. At $25 for a 4-pack, I may keep some on hand (and I might try the Dominican!). BTW, Leo, if Iím wrong please spare me the embarrassment and correct me privately!

Thatís all for today, until the next time,
