Plasencia Unveils Cosecha 149 Brand

July 11, 2021 By Matthew Tabacco

Plasencia Cigars, a world-leading premium tobacco grower, established in 1865, announces the release of the Plasencia Cosecha 149 cigar brand. The blend will first appear at the 2021 PCA (Premium Cigar Association) taking place this July 9 through July 14 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

 

The Spanish word cosecha translates to harvest.  The Plasencia Cosecha 149 commemorates the Plasencia family’s 149th yearly tobacco harvest which took place in 2014. The Plasencia family felt that the aged tobacco from the 149th harvest had reached perfection this year, and thus the Plasencia Cosecha 149 was created.

 

The Plasencia Cosecha 149 is a Honduran puro using tobacco from the Plasencia family’s various Honduran farms. This medium to full bodied blend features plenty of spice and toasty crispness (which is unique to Honduran tobacco). The smoking experience changes to a smoother, balanced middle finish. Housed in 10-count boxes the Cosecha 149 boasts a beautifully designed copper foil band.

 

The Plasencia Cosecha 149 blend comes in 10 count boxes and is expressed in three vitolas:

 

Santa Fe: a Gordito 4.75 X 60.  MSRP $12.00

La Vega: a Robusto 5 X 52. MSRP $13.00

Azuacualpa: a Toro 6 X 52 MSRP $14.50

 

Plasencia Cigars CEO Nestor Andres Plasencia said: “We are so excited to present the Plasencia Cosecha 149 at this year’s PCA. Honduran tobacco is incredibly unique. We felt strongly that to commemorate our 149th harvest the cigar needed to set itself apart. We look forward to sharing this blend with the smoking public.”
