The premium handmade lineup of Plasencia cigars are the namesake of one of the most influential people currently active in the cigar industry, Nestor Plasencia. With factories in both Honduras and Nicaragua, there’s nothing this cigar maker can’t do; he grows his own tobacco, rolls his own cigars and has helped pioneer the vision of other cigar brands including Rocky Patel and Alec Bradley, just to name a few. Because of his heavy involvement in all aspects of cigar creation, you are in for an enjoyable experience when you smoke anyone of his cigars.
The original Plasencia premium cigar is a well-crafted slow burning beauty boasting a Nicaraguan binder and aged long filler tobaccos from Honduras and Nicaragua. Depending on the specific size, you have a choice of either an Ecuador Connecticut, or black and oily Nicaraguan maduro wrapper. Both offer exceptionally smooth, yet well-refined medium body notes of earth, leather, coffee, and cedar. Those preferring a bit more spice and chocolate flavors will opt for maduro.
Now, joining Nestor’s famous first creation is the exciting new Jamon by Plasencia, a more robust offering fashioned with 100% Nicaraguan tobaccos from the country’s top growing regions. With long fillers from Jalapa, Habano binder leaf from the volcanic soils of Ometepe, and a rare Viso Habano Jalapa wrapper, you will experience one of the most complex and delicious medium to full body smokes that Nestor has ever produced. And, best of all—Jamon just happens to be a JR Cigar exclusive, so like the original Plasencia the price is very affordable!
