Plasencia Limited Edition
In more recent years, of course, Plasencia has created only a few limited edition cigars. Mostly, they’ve been busy with making the core blends that have formed the foundation of their own branded blends. Not surprisingly for a family that’s been in the cigar business for over a hundred years, these have earned great reviews.
These Plasencia in-house cigars include the Cosecha 146, which was Cigar Aficionado’s #19 cigar of 2021 and had a 93-point rating, and the rustic Alma Fuerte Salomon, a Nicaraguan puro with a woody, earthy flavor that’s really captivated some fans. There’s also the Alma Fuerte (“strong soul”), which earned 93 points and was the #13 cigar of 2019 thanks to 7-year aged tobacco grown in Ometepe, a volcanic island with rich dark soil.
The most exclusive Plasencia limited edition cigar is the Year of the Ox blend, released in 2021 to correspond to the Chinese Zodiac calendar. This Nicaraguan puro was flavorful and complex, and also sported a highly interesting Salomon shape. For smokers who love to see a skillfully rolled cigar, this Plasencia limited edition cigar is a great choice. Creamy, nutty, and spicy, it showcased what a blender can do with access to nearly every kind of tobacco grown in Nicaragua. With red and gold packaging and sold in lucky boxes of eight, it makes a great gift for anyone born in the Year of the Ox (1997, 1985, 1973, 1961, 1949, etc.).
