The Plasencia family are certified OGs when it comes to the cigar game, growing premium tobacco in Honduras and Nicaragua today with roots back to the days in Cuba in 1865 before both our parents were even conscious thoughts. After years of putting cigar companies on their back and helping turn them into industry giants (Romeo Y Julieta, Rocky Patel, Alec Bradley, and Gurkha just to name a few), Plasencia has decided to stop being the supporting role in the movie and rise to become one of the main characters.
Nestled quietly inside the heart of Lake Nicaragua lies an island producing rich and nutrient dense soil. The curators of this soil? Two volcanoes located on opposing ends. Volcan Concepcion in the north and Volcan Maderas in the south. The birthing ground for some of the best tobacco offered in the world and a kickass backstory that sounds like it could come from a comic book.
The Plasencia Alma del Fuego line of cigars pays tribute to Ometepe island with their addition to the “Alma’ line of premium cigars. The translation from Spanish meaning Soul of Fire, the Plasencia Alma del Campo is sure to ignite something within you. This full-bodied smoke sheathes binders and fillers from Ometepe island that erupt an array of flavors that are sure to set your heart ablaze. Containing tobacco aged for 7 years, the Plasencia Alma del Fuego is a daring and passionate leading example of the culture that Plasencia is constantly aiming to further cultivate.
