The Plasencia Alma del Fuego Concepcion is the Toro size of the Plasencia red line, produced in Nicaragua. The red color recalls precisely the “Fuego” (fire), which is due to the presence of leaves grown on the island of Ometepe, famous for its volcanic soil, and for the spicy note that is the signature of these tobaccos. The Concepcion was classified as the second best cigar produced in Nicaragua in 2019 (more information in the 2019 Awards). The cigars are sold in 10-count boxes.
The cigars are rolled in a Colorado Maduro shade wrapper, that is rough to the touch. The construction is excellent and the cigars appear slightly box-pressed and the foot of the cigar is closed.

Plasencia Alma del Fuego Concepcion: unlit, faint hints of earth and pepper are perceived. The little flavor is due to the closed foot, which makes only a few aromas come through. The opening reveals earth and mineral, on a suave peppery base.
Overall, the Plasencia Alma del Fuego Concepcion releases a remarkable flavor intensity paired with a very long finish. The use of tobacco grown in Ometepe is particularly perceptible and these leaves literally make this blend as good as it is. A great cigar.
