The Alma Fuerte by Plasencia was initially launched in 2016, and in late December of 2020, they started shipping the newest addition to the line, the Sixto I Hexagono Colorado Claro.
While there is already a similar hexagon-shaped cigar in the line, namely the Sixto II Hexagono, the difference between the two lies in the wrapper. In the case of the new one, it is a ten-year-old Colorado Claro wrapper grown by the Plasencia’s farms in Jalapa. The cigars are made at the Plasencia Cigars S.A. factory in Nicaragua and are sold in ten-count hexagon-shaped boxes.
As advertised, the wrapper is of a Colorado Claro shade with a slight tooth to it. The filling is generous and uniform. The hexagon shape gives the cigar a unique look and makes it seem a bit smaller than a regular 60 ring gauge.

Plasencia Alma Fuerte Sixto l Hexagono Colorado Claro: the cold draw brings wood, earth, and vegetal notes to the palate. Once lit, the cigar starts with roasted coffee and vegetal notes.
Overall, the Plasencia Alma Fuerte Sixto l Hexagono Colorado Claro is a flavorful and balanced smoke. While the last third may lack a bit in evolution, the flavor profile is complex and round. The cigar does a great job in keeping you interested in smoking it and, with it being a 60 ring gauge cigar, this is quite the achievement.
