Plasencia Alma Del Fuego Flama Panatela cigars are made from 100% Nicaraguan tobacco: wrapper, filler and binder. They are made at the famous Plasencia Cigars Factory which is located to the north of Managua. These panatelas are longer, elegant and slender cigars.
The company was initially founded by Don Eduardo Plasencia who emigrated from The Canary islands in 1865 to Cuba and began to grow tobacco. The farm remained in family hands until it was confiscated by Fidel Castro’s regime in 1963. Don Elder Sixto and his family fled to Mexico and and ended up in Nicaragua in 1965 where he planted some of his best seeds. The farms were burned by The Sandinistas in 1978 and the family fled to Honduras where Nestor Plasencia entered the cigar business. Eventually, in 1990, the family would return to Nicaragua and re-start the business they were forced to leave. Plasencia are now the largest tobacco grower in world. They launched their first cigars under the Plasencia brand in 2017.
Plasencia Alma Del Fuego Flama Panatelas highlights the strong character of the volcanic soil that stems from the Ometepe Island. The cigar offers a hint of spice, complemented by savory notes of tangerine, roasted cashews, and guava wood. Sun-grown wrappers from the fields of Jalapa Valley were carefully selected, complementing the cigar with a sweet character.
Alma del Fuego translates as “Soul of Fire”, which reflects the volcanic-grown tobacco used in the blend. This elegenat panatela features three cigar bands, including one at the foot of the cigar.
Aa great choice for cigar enthusiasts who enjoy a medium-bodied, spicy, and well-balanced smoke. Smoke time around 25 to 30 minutes.
Also available in boxes of 10 cigars.
