Tobacco grower and cigarmaker Nestor Andrés Plasencia has put his family’s Honduran tobacco on full display with his new brand called Plasencia Cosecha 149, and it’s shipping to retailers today. The line is named after the Plasencia’s 149th harvest, which happened in 2014. Now that the tobacco has had seven years to age, the Plasencias have turned it into a three-size line.

Consisting solely of Honduran tobacco, the Plasencia Cosecha 149 is blended with a wrapper from Olancho, San Agustín, a binder from Jamastran and mix of filler tobaccos from Jamastran, Talanga and Olancho. The Jamastran leaf was grown from proprietary Corojo seeds that the company says it developed, while the rest of the tobacco is Criollo.

The new brand comes in 10-count boxes and is offered in three sizes: Santa Fe, which measures 4 3/4 inches by 60 ring gauge; La Vega at 5 by 52 and a 6-by-52 toro called Azuacualpa. Suggested retail prices range from $12 to $14.50.

This isn’t the first time that the Plasencias have honored a specific harvest. In 2017, they released the Cosecha 146, a brand made with tobaccos from the 2011–2012 crop. Like Cosecha 146, the Cosecha 149 is made in Honduras at the Plasencias’ Tabacos de Oriente factory and should be medium to full in body.

The word cosecha translates to “harvest” in Spanish. The Plasencias first grew tobacco in Cuba.
