Null

Long known for the cigars they have made for other people, Nestor Andrés Plasencia and his father formed a distribution company named Placencia 1865 together in 2016. That company has branched out in a big way this year, showing off two new blends at its first 2017 IPCPR Convention & Trade Show.Alma del Campo

The first new debut is named Alma del Campo, the second in the Alma Series after Alma Fuerte was released last year. A Nicaraguan puro incorporating tobacco sourced exclusively from the company’s own fields, the Alma del Campo is available in five different vitolas packaged in boxes of 10 and scheduled to ship to retailers next month. In addition, the lid of each cigar box doubles as an ashtray.

  • Wrapper: Nicaragua
  • Binder: Nicaragua

About the author

I have been smoking cigars for over eight years. A documentary wedding photographer by trade, I spent seven years as a photojournalist for the Dallas Morning News and the Fort Worth Star Telegram. I started the cigar blog SmokingStogie in 2008 after realizing that there was a need for a cigar blog with better photographs and more in-depth information about each release. SmokingStogie quickly became one of the more influential cigar blogs on the internet, known for reviewing preproduction, prerelease, rare, extremely hard-to-find and expensive cigars. I am a co-founder of halfwheel and now serve as an editor for halfwheel.
