Plasencia Alma Del Fuego Ometepe

Plasencia Cigars has quietly released the Plasencia Alma Del Fuego Ometepe Edición Limitada. This cigar is Plasencia’s highest-priced to date, with an SRP of $100.00. Several retailers have already received the cigar in their stores.

Plasencia has showcased the cigar on its YouTube channel:

According to the information given to retailers, the Plasencia Alma Del Fuego Ometepe Edición Limitada is a Nicaraguan puro highlighted by a wrapper from Ometepe. Ometepe is an island located in Lake Nicaragua. Plasencia has referred to the wrapper as “Hoja del Fuego.” Ometepe tobacco is not typically used for wrappers.

The Ometepe Edición Limitada comes in one size –  6 1/4 x 54 box-pressed torpedo.

The cigars come packaged in special torpedo-shaped magnetic glass tubes, and the glass tubes are presented in 20-count humidors. A total of 1,000 humidors were released.

In a press release which followed the original reporting of this story, Plasencia CEO Nestor Andrés Plasencia said, “This cigar is a remarkable work of art. Since 1865, we have nurtured and cultivated tobacco, and at last, we have successfully grown a wrapper of unparalleled beauty in Ometepe, Nicaragua. The island of Ometepe is of great significance to our family as it has been to the Indigenous peoples of this region. We celebrate this achievement with the Plasencia Alma del Fuego Ometepe Edición Limitada.”
