This months new world cigar brand of the month is Plasencia Cigars, if you haven't read our post about the brand and it's history you can check it out HERE. Each week we focus on one of the cigars from the brand that we think is an exceptional example.
This week our cigar of the week is the Plasencia Reserva Original Piramide.
So why have we chosen the Reserva Original Piramide as this weeks cigar of the week?
Firstly, the vitola is a complete contrast to last weeks cigar of the week, the Plasencia Alma del Fuego Flama in Panatela. Here we have a wonderful Piramide, a little over 6 inches long with a ring gauge of 52. It falls right in the sweet spot for many cigar smokers current preferences.
Secondly, this cigar is rolled with 100% grown organic tobacco, the first in the world to the best of our knowledge. It shows innovation in tobacco growing and agriculture generally, Plasencia are to be applauded for that. It is a mild smoke (and my better half's favourite of all the Plasencia lines in the Corona), flavour wise expect hints of nuts, fruits, and caramel with delicate nuances of marzipan.
Finally, given it's size, given the brand and the sheer quality of this cigar, value wise there is little from other international brands that matches this price point!
