Cigar Review: Sosa 60 460 S

21 Feb 2012

Sosa’s original line, particularly the Wavell size, was a cigar I used to smoke more regularly. Produced by the Fuentes, it offers excellent mild- to medium-bodied flavors at an affordable price. Remembering my fondness for that cigar, I was looking forward to trying some of the newer Sosa cigars.

Last summer, Antillian Cigar Corp. (owner of the Sosa brand), announced three new lines. Underground, billed as the “hippest of the new brands,” is an all Nicaraguan cigar rolled in Little Havana, Miami. The Sosa Family Selection is a more traditional cigar that’s made in Honduras and available in natural and maduro wrappers.

The third cigar (and the subject of this review) is the Sosa 60, an all 60-ring gauge line that comes in four lengths: four, five, six, and seven inches. Rolled in Honduras at Rolando Reyes’ factory, the Sosa 20 utilizes a light brown Ecuadorian Sumatra wrapper around Dominican and Nicaraguan binder and filler tobaccos. I smoked a handful of the 4 by 60 “460 S” size for this review.

Woodiness dominates this medium-bodied cigar. There’s also a bit of cream, some toasty notes, and hints of honey and nutmeg spice. The finish is long and cedary.

The 460 shows excellent construction. The draw is easy while the cigar burns evenly and produces a sturdy light gray ash.

I must confess that this cigar surprised me. Thick smokes aren’t usually my thing, but this cigar worked well in the large format (though I’d still be interested to see how it fares in a thinner size).

Available for $5.50, the stubby little smoke is medium-bodied and surprisingly complex. Combine that enjoyable profile with excellent construction and the Sosa 60 460 S earns four stogies out of five.

    Small cigar, but small enough price tag for me to give it a try. Nice looking cigar with promising flavors from your review.

    I enjoyed one at the Fuego by Sosa cigar bar at Downtown Disney. Great place, great smoke.
