MIAMI (July 19, 2017) – Plasencia Cigars, a leading producer of premium cigars and the largest grower of tobacco in Nicaragua and Honduras, participated for the first time in the IPCPR Trade Show in Las Vegas. Plasencia showcased the new Alma del Campo , the second of five cigars that makes up the company’s flagship Alma Series. The first cigar in the Alma Series , “ Alma Fuerte, ” was introduced in New York in 2016 and has since been rated 93 points by Cigar Aficionado.
“We are thrilled to have been part of the IPCPR Trade Show in Las Vegas where we had the opportunity to feature Alma del Campo ,” said Nestor Andres Plasencia, CEO, Plasencia Cigars. “Since 1865, first in Cuba and later on in Nicaragua and Honduras, we have been producing the highest quality tobacco; and now having participated in such an important event like the IPCPR and showcased our Plasencia brand name cigars for the first time, marks a huge milestone for our family,” added Plasencia.
Alma del Campo is a creamy and smooth, medium-plus cigar made with tobacco from Nicaragua.

This cigar, like the Alma Fuerte , is made with immense passion and a rich family heritage.
In addition to the Alma series , Plasencia Cigars is also producing the Cosecha Series to celebrate the beginning of their first-ever tobacco harvest in Cuba, in 1865. The series is set to launch in the near future, but orders are already being taken for Cosecha 146.
