Plasencia 1865 has announced that its newest line is now shipping to stores.

The Plasencia Cosecha 149 is a Honduran puro that uses tobacco from the 2014 harvest. The wrapper comes from Olancho, San Agustín, the binder from the Jamastran Valley and fillers from the Jamastran Valley, Olancho and Talanga.

It’s offered in three regular production sizes:

  • Plasencia Cosecha 149 Santa Fe (4 3/4 x 60) — $12 (Box of 10, $120)
  • Plasencia Cosecha 149 La Vega (5 x 52) — $13 (Box of 10, $130)
  • Plasencia Cosecha 149 Azacualpa (6 x 52) — $14.50 (Box of 10, $145)

The name is a reference to the 2014 tobacco harvest, which was the family’s 149th. Plasencia did a similar concept with the Plasencia Cosecha 146 in 2017.
