The Alma del Fuego Candente is the Robusto size of the line produced by Plasencia, in Nicaragua. The “Fuego” (fire) is due to the presence of leaves grown on the island of Ometepe in Nicaragua, famous for its volcanic soil, and for the spicy note that this tobacco gives to the blends in which it is used. The Toro size, the Concepción, is the second best cigar produced in Nicaragua in 2019 (more information in the 2019 Awards).
The cigars are wrapped in a colorado maduro wrapper, with reddish reflections. The construction is excellent and the cigar is slightly box-pressed.
