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.
Altadis U.S.A. is bringing back a line from Aging Room, Oliveros Gran Retorno. Oliveros Gran Retorno is a small batch production that undergoes a unique aging process. The blend uses extra aged tobacco that has been aging in traditional bales for 24 months, then they rested in “reposado” in the factory Cedar Room for six months, and then the cigars themselves have been aged for at least 33 months after rolling.
"I was leery about the first third, hoping it may have some complexity of this blend, however i was delightfully surprised bu the last two thirds. A menagerie of roasted and tasty charred flavors intermingling with sweet caramel and chocolate flavors made this end up being two thumbs up for me! Paired with flawless appearance, construction and burn made it all the better. Top notch med-full bodied smoke!" -John A. (Bostoneo)
