The Plasencias have been growing cigar tobacco for a very long time—according to the family history, since 1865. But the year 2011 holds some significance. Not only was it a banner year for tobacco quality, but it marks 146 years since the family’s inaugural harvest. So the Plasencias decided to create a brand using tobacco from the 2011 vintage and name it after the family’s 146th crop. All of the tobacco in Cosecha 146 is from Criollo ’98 seed. The wrapper comes from the Jamastran Valley in Honduras, while the binder comes from Estelí, Nicaragua. The filler is a mix of tobaccos from Nicaragua (Condega) and Honduras (Olancho and Jamastran Valley). There’s some tobacco from the 2012 crop as well, as each growing season extends into the following year.
