Cigar News: Plasencia 1865 Now Shipping Alma Del Fuego Cortez Cigar
New Limited Production Figurado Will Highlight Ometepe Tobacco
Plasencia 1865 Cigars has announced that the Plasencia Alma Del Fuego Cortez cigar that was made exclusively for the Tobacconist Association of America (TAA) convention—a first for the cigar maker—is now shipping to retailers nationwide. The Cortez is built upon the very same Plasencia Alma Del Fuego cigar blend that earned the #13 slot for Aficionado’s Top 25 Cigars of 2019. This TAA version of the Alma Del Fuego will be a limited production cigar handcrafted to a 5.7” x 56 Figurado.
“We are excited to highlight Ometepe tobacco in this new vitola,” said Jose Luis Plasencia, Vice President of Plasencia 1865 Cigars. “This cigar truly highlights the incredible flavor of this bold tobacco which is born out of rich volcanic soil.”
As they have done since the company was founded in 1865, Plasencia has sourced only the finest tobacco for the Alma del Fuego Cortez. That practice is also evidenced in this exclusive blend that issues a full-bodied smoke with “bold and fiery notes.”
On its way to TAA member retailers, the Plasencia Alma Del Fuego Cortez cigar is presented in 10 count boxes with an MSRP of $21 per cigar.
“This cigar represents the culmination of our passion, expertise, and commitment to excellence,” said Plasencia 1865 CEO, Nestor Andrés Plasencia. CA
