One of the most famous families within the premium cigar community has recently decided to start putting their name on their blends, and they hit the ground running with Plasencia Alma Fuerte premium cigars. Although this is the first blend to bear the Plasencia name under their new company, the family’s history in the cigar industry stretches back almost 150 years.
The Plasencia’s history with tobacco can be traced back to 1865 when Don Eduardo Plasencia moved to the Vuelta Abajo region of Cuba. Following Castro’s takeover, the Plasencia family moved on to Honduras and Nicaragua and developed prestigious facilities for growing fine tobaccos and rolling top-notch cigars for countless popular brands.

Although renowned for their work on 3rd party brands, Plasencia wanted to show off their best work with their first brand under the new Plasencia 1865 banner. To truly wow the cigar community with their first release bearing its name, the Plasencia Alma Fuerte, the family knew that they needed to pull all the stops.
The Plasencia Alma Fuerte starts off with a core of their finest Nicaraguan long filler tobaccos grown on Plasencia estates in Jalapa, Condega, Esteli, and Ometepe that have undergone a 10-year aging process. Joined by a thick Nicaraguan binder, the cigars are finished with a top-shelf and lusciously dark Nicaraguan Jalapa wrapper.
These extraordinary tobaccos meld together to provide me with a rich and complex full-bodied smoke brimming with deep flavors of peppery spice, dark chocolate, and cinnamon over a smattering of cream, coffee, dried fruit, cedar, and tobacco sweetness. Whenever I want to enjoy true opulence and luxury, the Plasencia Alma Fuerte is the go-to in my humidor.
