Plasencia's unique hexagon-shaped cigar is now available in a new wrapper, a Colorado Claro wrapper. This brand new blend is a line extension of the Plasencia Alma Fuerte and uses ten-year aged tobacco.
Plasencia Cigars announced today that they are shipping a box-pressed version of it's Alma del Campo Travesia in a box-pressed format. The Travesia size has been around since the cigar launched in 2017, but it was in a rounded format. This new vitola ships next week.
"This was a delight to smoke with its note changes that really compliment each other & excellent construction... It was truly great to sit back in the sun & enjoy the experience instead of tending to the cigar. " -Allison T. (The Yoga Ash)

"I really enjoyed this cigar. There were plenty of transition to hold my attention with wood, floral, some nuts and quite a bit of milk chocolate. The interesting point to this cigar was the more I smoke it the lighter and creamier it got. I would definitely smoke this again. " -Mickey T. (irratebass)
Plasencia Cigars has announced a new release for international markets: Year of the Ox. Unfortunately that means that we won't be seeing them in the U.S. but 2,500 boxes will be sold out of the U.S.
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)
"This complex cigar featured some interesting flavor transitions which I highly enjoyed. The notes were all well defined and the transitions between the differing notes all made sense. I would recommend this stogie to both newcomers and seasoned cigar smokers alike." -Matt Ca. (Cade)

"Overall a great smoke. It is rare that I smoke anything down to the point where fingers get singed anymore, but this one was too good to let go. Definitely worthy of making a box purchase. " -Dave W. (mdwest)
