Cigar of the Week: Plasencia Reserva Organica Corona

Size: 6¼” x 44
Strength: Medium
Wrapper: Nicaraguan Sun Grown
Filler: Nicaraguan Estelí & Jalapa longfiller
Binder: Nicaraguan

How about something completely different this week? If you’ve never smoked cigars made entirely with organically-grown and cured tobaccos, you’ve been missing something really special and tasty like these Plasencia Reserva Organica Coronas.

Rolled to more of a “Cuban Corona” length and diameter, these 100% “Certified Organic” cigars are created from tobaccos grown in two regions of Nicaragua using pre-Colombian farming methods. Nestor Plasencia Jr. developed this creamy-smoking, medium-bodied blend that’s aged three full years before shipping. The smoke is primarily earthy, nutty and woody with a hint of sweetness on the finish.

Give ’em a try, and let ’em age up a little longer at home for an even more marvelous treat.
