The La Palina Bronze Label Four Star Gordo did not quite live up to the 4-star name. The beautiful bronze foil band complemented the brown oily wrapper. Bits of bitter tobacco wafted from the cold draw. The initial third presented chocolate hints that matured into Mexican hot chocolate. Wood took the second third by storm, occasionally interrupted by tinges of chocolate. I tasted only baking spicing in the final third. The La Palina Bronze Label cigar gets two stars. While construction yielded excellent smoke production, the flavor profile lacked refinement.
