Shock & Awe
Breaking away from the company standard, Shock and Awe is a one of a kind military themed cigar with a unique recipe. A rare Habana (Jalapa) binder and Nicaraguan Habano filler leaves are rolled inside an oily chestnut brown Pennsylvania Broadleaf wrapper. Keeping with the current trend for big ring smokes, Plasencia went ahead and broke the mold (no pun intended) with these tasty premium monsters. Currently there are three ginormous sizes available. The Roaring Meg a 5.5 x 70 jawbreaker, an even bigger 5.5 x 80 in the name of Barracks Buster, and the slightly more traditional Little David, that weighs in at a fairly hefty 5.5 x 60. Each Front mark takes its name from a different type of WW II mortar shell, and the cigars within are shaped like one, as you will quickly notice.
