Plasencia Cigars announces the February release of the limited edition “Year of the Ox”, a Nicaraguan puro, to celebrate the Chinese New Year in 2021. The limited edition Ox, only 20,000 produced, will be offered in a 7 X 58 Salomon vitola and will be exclusive to the international market.
Plasencia cited the ox as inspiration because of its role in Chinese agriculture as hardworking and a symbol of diligence and persistence.
“The ‘Year of the Ox’ is dedicated to the hard-working people who are in the trenches, cultivating the very tobacco we used in this blend,” Plasencia Cigars CEO Nestor Andres Plasencia said in a press release. “We at the Plasencia family consider ourselves farmers first. Since 1865, our family has gained invaluable tobacco knowledge, born of unwavering hard work and dedication. ‘The Year of the Ox’ celebrates that passion.”
The Year of the Ox will retail for $35 a stick, and also come in bright red eight-count boxes for $280.
