The Smokin Tabacco Show: Nestor Plasencia and Wayne D Clark

March 5, 2022 By Matthew Tabacco

On this episode of the Smokin Tabacco Show, we are back home in the cold at the JC Newman cigar studios from The Great Smoke. We welcome on Nestor Plasencia and Wayne D Clark of Plasencia. In the first half hour, we talk to Nestor about launching the Plasencia brand after being such a big name in farming and production for other brands for so many years and generations. Nestor gives us a glimpse into what it is like on the farm and tells us about how important the soil is that the tobacco is grown in and the methods they use to keep it the best it can be.

In the second half hour, we talk about the return of Fred Rewey to the industry by way of Illusione and the launch of Bellatto Premium Cigars by Tony Bellatto as part of our Micallef news segment. Wayne talks us about the things the brand is working on this year and teases that there is much to look forward to. Wayne plays along in our Top Three segment brought to you by Room101 by telling us the three most interesting things you wouldn’t know about him.
