For over 150 years they have produced cigars for some of the most recognizable brands in the industry, including Rocky Patel, Alec Bradley, Gurkha.
In 2017 the Plasencia family launched their first cigar under the Plasencia brand name. The Alma Fuerte features the finest tobaccos grown on the Plasencia farms throughout Nicaragua. The result is a full bodied smoke with rich flavors of cocoa, cinnamon and molasses.
