Smokers of the Alma del Campo Travesia Box Press will experience an even creamier and smoother version, of the Alma de Campo series. This blend is a Nicaraguan puro created with tobaccos curated from the vast Plasencia tobacco portfolio. The Alma del Campo series of cigars is known for its perfect balance, complex flavors, delivering notes of coffee and nuts. It is a very creamy cigar, with a hint of spice.

The first third of the Plasencia Alma del Fuego Concepción really reminded me of Christmas for some reason, but after that, things became average until the final third when creamy coffee rescued the cigar from continuing to be average. I'm interested to smoke this in another vitola in hopes of seeing that first third profile last longer as I really enjoyed it. I would smoke this again and see this as a nice addition to the company portfolio.

Personal Cigar Review: Plasencia Alma Fuerte Robustus

The Plasencia Alma Fuerte Robustus is quite inviting. I don't find the strength to be as much as some do with this line, but the body is definitely present and with that is a great amount of flavors. Complex with some awesome transitioning and depth throughout, the cigar will not disappoint.

It'll be a disservice to not retrohale the Plasencia Cosecha 146 La Vega as it's the best part of it, giving full notes of dried nuts and black pepper. The strength build up helped the cigar to not be mundane rather attention grabbing. All in all, I would smoke one again but not in a rush to reach for more.

Personal Cigar Review: Plasencia Alma del Campo Guajiro

This sophomore release from Plasencia is the best cigar they have released year to date. The flavor profile is complex with a nice bit of depth and it has this great medium-full body and strength level throughout. Why the company did not have their own brand years ago baffles me, but I am glad they are here now.
