Plasencia Cigars debuted the Plasencia Cosecha 149 at the 2021 PCA trade show this week. The word "Cosecha" translates to "harvest," and in this case is a reference to the harvest of tobacco used in this blend. Plasencia Cosecha 149 contains tobacco from the 149th Plasencia Family harvest, which happened in 2014. The tobacco has been fermenting and aging ever since, until it made its way into this particular cigar.
