The Plasencia Alma del Fuego has been awarded with a 92-point rating, noting "Gleaming with oils, this box-pressed cigar is fashioned with a flat head and closed foot. Its open draw offers plenty of spicy, woody smoke that's accentuated by touches of coffee bean, dried fruit and cloves. The finish is nutty and sweet.
The Plasencia family has long loved the leaf that comes from this island, and the Alma del Fuego is their tribute to Ometepe. To acieve the full potential of the volcanic soils, all the Ometepe tobaccos used for the double binder and half the filler blend are aged for seven long years. The wrapper and remaining fillers are from Jalapa, and all the tobacco contained herein was grown on Plasencia’s own farms, operating for more than five generations.
