The Plasencia Alma Fuerte Generacion V was rated 93/100 by Cigar Insider.
Ranked #9 by Cigar Aficionado Magazine.
Plasencia Cigars, the leading producer of premium cigars and the largest producer of tobacco in Central America, was awarded 1st place in a consumer cigar blind tasting held by Manuel’s, one of the finest and most renowned cigar shops in Zürich, Switzerland. The award was conferred for its Alma del Campo Tribu cigar, one of the company’s first brand name cigars to be introduced to the market.
Plasencias goal is to use the best leaves of aged tobacco exclusively in their cigars leaving them in the hands of the best collaborators in the fields and artists of the factories.
The boxes for the Plasencia Alma Fuerte range have a very cool hidden feature to them; they double up as a gorgeous ashtray! A solid wood, 4 finger ashtray with a metal embossed Plasencia logo in the bottom. Sweetens the deal when purchasing your full box, and also makes the enjoyment of the cigars that bit better.
For the Alma Fuerte, a team of five blenders, including Plasencia, Sr. and Jr., worked to create the cigar from 100% Nicaraguan tobaccos. The blend focuses around the family’s Criollo ’98 seed, using tobaccos from each of the major growing regions of Nicaragua (Condega, Estelí, Jalapa, and Ometepe). In addition, the Plasencias are using some of their rarest and most premium-grade leaves from their vast tobacco inventories.
