Plasencia Cigars, a world-leading premium tobacco grower, established in 1865, announces that the acclaimed Plasencia Alma del Fuego will now be offered in a 3-pack. The sleekly designed three pack will contain the three vitolas that the Alma del Fuego is offered in. This includes the Plasencia Alma del Fuego Concepcion which received a 93 rating in addition to earning the number 13 cigar of 2019 by Cigar Aficionado Magazine.
The Plasencia Alma del Fuego (which translates to “Soul of Fire”) brand was created to recognize the island of Ometepe which is in Lake Nicaragua. Ometepe is formed by two volcanos. Volcanic soil is gold for tobacco growing and Ometepe offers up a deep black and nutrient rich volcanic soil which creates an incredibly unique tobacco that is prized by the Plasencia family. Sweet and earthy is a term that is used when describing tobacco from Ometepe. The Plasencia family has been farming tobacco in Ometepe for years, thus they felt it was time to create a brand which was dedicated to the island of Ometepe and its volcanos.
The Plasencia Alma de Fuego 3-pack’s packaging sports deep black and rich red colors which represents the black volcanic soil, fire, lava, and passion. The three vitolas include the Alma del Fuego:
- Candente (5 x 50)
- Flama (61/2 x 38)
- Concepcion (6 x 54) which is aptly named after an active Volcano, Concepcion, which is located on Ometepe Island.
Plasencia Cigars CEO Nestor Andres Plasencia stated:
“The Alma del Fuego is a project which is near and dear to our heart. Ometepe has been particularly good to us and we felt it was necessary to share its history and importance to tobacco making with the cigar smoking public. Our consumers have been very communicative with us, and it was asked of us to create a 3-pack that would be easily accessible while offering the Plasencia Alma del Fuego in all three of its expressions. Feedback from our customers and retailers is what helps us evolve and better serve them through our products and customer service. We invite the public to continue its dialogue with us.”
The Plascencia Alma Del Fuego 3-packs carries an MSRP of $49.99
