(Miami, Florida) November 17,2021- Plasencia Cigars, a world-leading premium tobacco grower, established in 1865, announces that the much-anticipated Plasencia Cosecha 149 cigar brand is now shipping to retailers across the nation. The blend first appeared at the 2021 PCA (Premium Cigar Association) which took place this past July in Las Vegas, Nevada.
The Spanish word “cosecha” translates to 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 thus the Plasencia Cosecha 149 was created.
The Plasencia Cosecha 149 is a Box-Pressed Honduran puro using tobacco from the Plasencia family’s various Honduran farms. This medium to full-bodied blend features plenty of spice and toasty crispness (which is unique to Honduran tobacco). The smoking experience changes to a smoother, balanced middle finish. Housed in 10-count boxes the Cosecha 149 boasts a beautifully designed copper foil band.
The Plasencia Cosecha 149 blend comes in 10 count boxes and is expressed in three vitolas:
Santa Fe: a Box-Pressed Gordito 4.875 X 60. MSRP $12.00
La Vega: a Box-Pressed Robusto 5 X 52 MSRP $13.00
Azuacualpa: a Box-Pressed Toro 6 X 52 MSRP $14.50
Plasencia Cigars CEO Nestor Andres Plasencia said: “The Plasencia Cosecha 149 is an exciting project for us. Honduran tobacco is incredibly unique. We strongly felt that to commemorate our 149th harvest the cigar needed to set itself apart.”
