Plasencia Cigars has never forgotten what made it a phenomenon in the first place. Striving to put an affectionate personal touch into every cigar. This is why it’s remained a family operation for so long, that trademark passion is instilled in every member of the operation.
The art of cigar making has been the primary focus of the Plasencia family for generations. From the selection of seeds to the growth and cultivation of the tobacco to the blending process. All of it was under the watchful eye of the Plasencias. Going all the way back to 1865 when Eduardo Plasencia emigrated to Cuba.
Starting at a small operation, Eduardo soon went independent and involved his children in managing the business. They continued building a reputation for flawless tobacco, passing the operation down to new Plasencias every few generations. Since then, they’ve become one of the top providers of extraordinary tobacco on the planet, growing for premier brands as well as their own house brand.
Their newest offering, Alma Fuerte, is already living up to the brand’s sterling reputation. A rare blend consisting of their best aged Nicaraguan tobacco. Grown in specially treated, high quality soil and aged for a minimum of ten years. The result is sublime, nuanced smoke tinged with medium strength and notes of dark chocolate, plum, cinnamon, oak, and molasses.
