The Plasencia Cigar and Ashtray Selection is a fantastic selection that features the Cigar Journal’s cigar of the Year for 2020!
The selection consists of:
Plasencia Alma Fuerte Robustos I Cigar – Plasencia Alma Fuerte, a unique blend of our best-aged tobaccos, grown in our highest quality soil, accentuating their bold, vibrant and intense flavors. Laced with hints of dark chocolate, plum, and cinnamon, the taste is rounded out with finishing notes of oak and molasses. The Plasencia Alma Fuerte Robustus is really inviting, and I can see why Cigar Journal made it their cigar of the year. Decent strength and great amounts of flavour. Complex with some fantastic transitioning and depth throughout (most important for me in a New World offering), the cigar will not disappoint.
Plasencia Alma Fuerte Generacion V Cigar – The Plasencia family has been growing tobacco for five generations, and to this day still provides high-quality leaf to a huge portion of the premium cigar industry. Translating to “strong soul,” the blend is indeed full bodied, and it’s made with aged tobacco taken from Plasencia’s vast library of vintage leaf. While the primary component is Criollo ’98, Alma Fuerte is a blend of tobacco from four growing regions: Esteli, Condega, Jalapa and Ometepe. All the tobaccos come together quite cohesively in the Generacion V, a box-pressed Salomon-style cigar full of tapers and curves.As you might expect, the Generacion V requires some time. Cigars of this shape normally take awhile to warm up and begin steady combustion. But once it does, it rewards the smoker with layer upon rich layer of cocoa powder, leather and toast.
Handmade Plasencia Cigar Ashtray
The combination of the Plasencia Alma Fuerte Robustus cigar, which was awarded the Cigar Journal’s cigar of the year last year and it’s Soloman style brother, the Alma Fuerte Generacion V is definitely not one to be missed! On top of that we have also chosen one of Plasencia’s handmade cigar ashtray to the selection making this an incredible value for money selection that we hope you’ll enjoy!
