Plasencia Cigars is shipping the Plasencia Cosecha 149 to retailers. The box-pressed Honduran puto comes in 10-count boxes in three sizes; the Santa Fe, a 4.875 x 60 Gordito ($12), the La Vega, a 5 x 52 Robusto ($13) and the Azuacualpa, a 6 x 52 Toro ($14.50).
The blend debuted at the PCA trade show in July, taking its name from the Spanish word for ‘harvest.’
The Plasencia Cosecha 149 commemorates the Plasencia family’s 149th yearly tobacco harvest which took place in 2014. The Plasencia family felt that the aged tobacco from the 149th harvest had reached perfection this year, and the Plasencia Cosecha 149 was created.
“ Honduran tobacco is incredibly unique,” Plasencia Cigars CEO Nestor Andres Plasencia said in a statement. “We strongly felt that to commemorate our 149th harvest the cigar needed to set itself apart.”
