Plasencia Cigars has announced the upcoming release of the Plasencia Cosecha 149, a cigar that debuted earlier this summer during the 2021 PCA (Premium Cigar Association) trade show.
“The Plasencia Cosecha 149 is an exciting project for us. Honduran tobacco is incredibly unique. We strongly felt that to commemorate our 149th harvest the cigar needed to set itself apart,” commented Nestor Andres Plasencia, CEO of Plasencia Cigars.
The Spanish word “cosecha” translates to harvest in English. The Plasencia Cosecha 149 was developed to celebrate the Plasencia family’s 149th yearly tobacco harvest, which took place in 2014. The Plasencia family felt that the aged tobacco from the 149th harvest had reached a state of perfection this year and created this blend using tobaccos from that crop.
The Plasencia Cosecha 149 is a box-pressed Honduran pro made entirely of tobaccos grown on the Placencia family’s various Honduran farms. This medium to full-bodied blend has lots of spice and toasty crispness, qualities that are unique for Honduran tobacco. The cigar transitions to a smoother, balanced middle and finish. Plasencia Cosecha 149 comes in 10-count boxes and the cigar itself features a copper foil band. This cigar will be available in three different sizes; Santa Fe (4 7/8 x 60, Gordita), La Vega (5 x 52, Robusto), and Azuacualpa (6 x 52, Toro).
This cigar has begun to ship to retailers in the U.S.
