Editors’ pick | Plasencia Alma del Campo Guajiro
“Alma del Campo” means “soul of the field”.Plasencia successfully captures the essence of the Nicaragua tobacco field to global connoisseurs. This series contains 5 formats of Nicaraguan puro, highly rated by several International Cigar magazines.
Dressed in milk chocolate brown wrappers and decorated with 3 ring bands. The cigars have a chocolate and earthy aroma and a light sweetness. The previous edition of Plasencia included a lid as an ashtray. But we can see that the current production has already removed this feature.
Format: Robusto Gordo
Size: 5½" x 54 RG
Enjoyment Time: 80-100 mins
We have aged this box of cigars for half year before tasting, as all Plasencia cigars tend to improve and reduce the nicotine content after a few months of patience.
This cigar shows good construction with even burn. This medium to strong cigar has a very smooth and creamy draw, featuring a lingering finish. Beautiful to pair with single malt whisky to bring out the yeastiness. Or pair it with an Ice Americano to harmonise with the coffee aroma throughout the cigar enjoyment.
WOULD I RECOMMEND THIS CIGAR?
This cigar’s size and complex aroma might be a bit overwhelming for novices. But for seasoned aficionados, this huge cigar would fill your evening with its rich, complex character. This is an excellent daily cigar with an ideal price. All of our team agreed would be coming back for more.
