A fourth size is coming to Plasencia Cigars’ Alma Fuerte line. This week the company told Cigar Insider it is adding a 5 1/2 x 52 size known as Robustus I to the line. According to the report, the new size should be hitting retailers around February.
When the Plasencias launched their own brand and distribution arm, the Alma Fuerte was the first line released. Alma Fuerte translates to “Strong Soul” – something that reflects the passion of the Plasencias in the cigar business. Alma Fuerte is also ultra-premium line featuring some of the best tobaccos the Plasencias have set aside over a decade ago.
The cigars come packaged in ten-count boxes, which also serve to be re-used as an ashtray.
