Plasencia Cigars, a world-leading premium tobacco grower established in 1865, announces that the Plasencia Alma Fuerte Colorado Claro Eduardo I is now shipping to retailers. Available in a Toro Box Pressed 6 1/4 x 54, the vitola named Eduardo I is in dedication to the very first generation of the Plasencia tobacco family. The new vitola was introduced to retailers in July at the 2022 PCA in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Eduardo Plasencia was the pioneer of the Plasencia tobacco family. He migrated from the Canary Islands to Cuba and started growing tobacco in 1865 and thus the Plasencia tobacco legacy was born. Today, the Plasencia tobacco family is in its 5th generation and the decision was made to create a vitola in homage, the Eduardo I.
The Colorado Claro wrapper which comes from the vast Plasencia tobacco library was aged for over 10 years, which results in a smoother smoking experience. Smokers will experience notes of cocoa, almonds, and transitioning to a hint of nutmeg and cedar in the final notes.
Plasencia Cigars CEO Nestor Andres Plasencia stated: “It is important for us to continue to acknowledge our family history and use them as inspiration as we go forward. Eduardo Plasencia took a major risk by crossing the Atlantic Ocean to start farming tobacco in a faraway land. Without him, there would be no Plasencia tobacco family.
The Box Pressed 61/4 x 54 Toro Plasencia Alma Fuerte Colorado Claro Eduardo I comes in a 10-count box with an MSRP of $20.60.
