It takes a bit of imagination to fully appreciate what the Plasencia family was hoping to achieve with this blend. According to the mission statement, this is the type of cigar that the Europeans would have smoked when tobacco was discovered in the New World more than five centuries ago. One can only speculate, but we’d like to think that this is a more refined product than what the Spanish colonials experienced. With a vast inventory of tobacco at their disposal, the Plasencias give us an all-Nicaraguan blend showing a toasty, nutty smoke accented by notes of orange peel, honey, almond paste and baking spices. Flavors resonate on the palate with a charming tea-and-cookie finish.
