The cigar that celebrates the 151st crop of tobacco planted by the Plasencia family is now heading to stores.

It’s called Plasencia Cosecha 151, cosecha is the Spanish word for harvest, and it uses Honduran tobacco from the 2016 harvest. If it all sounds familiar, it’s because this is the third Cosecha line from Plasencia. Interestingly, the company says the wrapper is similar to the one used on the Cosecha 149 line, though it’s from a different harvest and lower priming.

Cosehca 151 is offered in three sizes:

  • Plasencia Cosecha 151 La Musica (5 x 50) — $13.50 (Box of 10, $135)
  • Plasencia Cosecha 151 La Tradicion (5 7/8 x 54) — $16 (Box of 10, $160)
  • Plasencia Cosecha 151 San Diego (5  3/4 x 46) — $13.30 (Box of 10, $133)

For retailers that were shown a preview of the cigar over the summer, the packaging has changed. The yellow color that was used on the bands shown off at the 2023 PCA Convention & Trade Show has been replaced by gold, and other elements of the packaging have changed.

Plasencia also sells the Cosecha 149, which uses tobacco from the 2014 harvest. In September, the company informed retailers that it was discontinuing the Cosehca 146 line, which used tobacco from the 2011-2012 harvest.
