Next February, Plasencia 1865 will be adding a new robusto vitola to its Alma Fuerte line.
The Alma Fuerte Robustus I is a 5 1/4 x 52 vitola that comes priced at $18.65, which is a nod to the year the company was founded, 1865, and the year that appears in the company’s formal name. It comes packaged in 10-count boxes that feature an integrated ashtray, just as with the other sizes in the Alma Fuerte and Alma del Campo lines.
Alma Fuerte debuted in 2016, a Nicaraguan puro that uses a wrapper from Jalapa, a Nicaraguan binder and fillers from Condega, Estelí, Jalapa and Ometepe. All of the tobacco is grown on Plasencia’s farms, with production handled by the Plasencia Cigars S.A. factory in Nicaragua.
With the release of the Robustos I, the line will now include four sizes:
- Plasencia Alma Fuerte Nestor IV (6 1/4 x 54)
- Plasencia Alma Fuerte Robustus I (5 1/4 x 52)
- Plasencia Alma Fuerte Sixto ii (6 x 60)
- Plasencia Alma Fuerte Generacion V Salomon (7 x 58)
The new size is currently available for retailers to order.
