The renowned Plasencia Alma Fuerte line is getting a robusto size next year, according to brand owner Nestor Andrés Plasencia. The 5 1/4 inch by 52 ring gauge cigar, named Robustus I, should be released in February.
The upcoming size is the first addition to the Alma Fuerte line since it came out in 2016, bringing Alma Fuerte to four sizes. Like the rest of the line, the Robustus I is packaged in the same 10-count box that also doubles as an ashtray. MSRP is set at $18.65 per cigar.
Plasencia Alma Fuerte cigars are made with aged Nicaraguan tobacco grown by the Plasencia family, who has a vast library of vintage leaf. While the primary component is Criollo ’98, Alma Fuerte is a strong blend of tobacco from four of Nicaragua’s growing regions: Estelí, Condega, Jalapa and Ometepe.
The Alma Fuete Generacion V size received rave reviews from a number of publications and was named the No. 9 cigar of 2017 by Cigar Aficionado, and No. 1 cigar of 2017 by Cigar Snob.
Plasencia Alma Fuerte cigars are made in Nicaragua at the Plasencia Cigars S.A. factory, and distributed by Plasencia 1865. Plasencia cigars are currently on sale at Cigars of Habanos at 18% off as part of our Black Friday Sale. This sale ends, November 30th 2018.
