Plasencia Cigars has announced that the Plasencia Alma Fuerte Colorado Claro will now be available in a Toro Box Pressed 6 1/4 x 54. The vitola named Eduardo I is in dedication to the very first generation of the Plasencia tobacco family. Pre-orders of the new vitola will be taken at 2022 PCA in Las Vegas, Nevada taking place in July.
Eduardo Plasencia was the pioneer of the Plasencia tobacco family. He migrated from the Canary Islands to Cuba and started growing tobacco in 1865 and thus the Plasencia tobacco legacy was born. Today, the Plasencia tobacco family is in its 5th generation and the decision was made to create a vitola in homage, the Eduardo I.
The Colorado Claro wrapper which comes from the vast Plasencia tobacco library was aged for over 10 years, which results in a smoother smoking experience.
Plasencia Cigars CEO Nestor Andres Plasencia stated: “It is important for us to continue to acknowledge our family history and use them as inspiration as we go forward. Eduardo Plasencia took a major risk by crossing the Atlantic Ocean to start farming tobacco in a faraway land. Without him, there would be no Plasencia tobacco family. We look forward to presenting the Plasencia Alma Fuerte Colorado Claro Eduardo I at the 2022 PCA in July.”
The Box Pressed 61/4 x 54 Toro Plasencia Alma Fuerte Colorado Claro Eduardo I comes in a 10-count box with an MSRP of $20.60.
The Plasencia Alma Fuerte Eduardo I is expected to ship to retailers in mid-September.
