At the 2021 Trade Show, Plasencia Cigars launched the Plasencia Cosecha 149. The name Cosecha is Spanish for Harvest. In the case of the Cosecha 149, it’s a cigar comprised of 100% Honduran tobacco from the Plasencia family’s 149th harvest.
The Plasencia 149 is the second installment of Plasencia’s Cosecha series. In 2017, Plasencia launched the Plasencia 146, a cigar made up of tobaccos from the Plasencia’s 146th crop that was harvested in 2011. The Plasencia 149 features tobaccos harvested in 2014 from various Plasencia family farms in Honduras.
The Plasencia Cosecha 149 is presented in three sizes – each in ten-count boxes. It 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.
“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, ” commented CEO Nestor Andrés Plasencia in a press release prior to the 2021 PCA Trade Show.
