Plasencia Alma Fuerte
Country of Origin: Nicaragua
Cigar Strength: Medium - Full-Bodied
The Plasencia family has been growing tobacco for five generations, own three major factories in Nicaragua and make cigars for almost everyone in the game. Nestor Plasencia is truly one of the legends of the modern cigar industry.
The Plasencia Alma Fuerte is Plasencia’s foray into making cigars under their own namesake and they come with a powerful blend made entirely of Nicaraguan tobacco. The medium to full bodied cigar uses selected, carefully aged Criollo '98 tobacco from Esteli, Condega, Jalapa and Ometepe. Each box comes with a lid that when flipped around has a branded pewter insert over the wood and doubles as an ashtray.
This is one beautiful cigar, featured by its irresistible oily, thick Maduro wrapper and impeccable construction. It embodies bold, rich and intense flavors with hints of dark chocolate and plum with final nuances of oak and molasses.
Plasencia Alma Fuerte is one of the real gems in the cigar world and worth every penny. You’re in for a treat!
