Plasencia Cigars will this week release the Plasencia Ehtëfal in Doha, Qatar, where this year’s FIFA World Cup will begin on Saturday.
The single-sized 6 x 52 Plasencia Ehtëfal, a Toro, comes with a sun-grown organic wrapper from Jalapa and binder and filler from the Plasencia farms in Honduras and Nicaragua. It comes in bright green 10-count boxes that sell for $650.
Plasencia produced 2,500 boxes for the U.S. market and 2,500 for the international market.
“With this special blend, the Plasencia family wants to celebrate that we can meet again,” Nestor Andres Plasencia said in a press release. “Just as the roots of tobacco come together and become stronger, we too are stronger together. We wish to celebrate this momentous occasion taking place in Qatar with the Plasencia Ehtëfal.”
The global launch will be an invite-only affair in Doha hosted by Plasencia Cigars and its distributor in Qatar, The Humidor Trading Company. The family has invited a select group of local authorities and international personalities to attend.
