Plasencia Cigar Company announced their brand new line, the Cosecha 149. The new cigar will use tobacco from the brand’s 149th crop, which was harvested back in 2014. The brand Cosecha 146 (released back in 2017) also used a particular crop of aged tobacco. The 146 took high honors back in 2018 https://www.cigarslover.com/en/2-honduras-plasencia-cosecha-146-san-augustin/. The Cosecha 149 is a puro, with all parts of the cigar using Honduran tobacco. Tobacco has been aged for 7 years before rolling.
The 149 uses a wrapper from Olancho, San Agustín. Binder leaf is from the Jamastran Valley. Filler tobacco is a mix of tobaccos from Olancho, Jamastran, and Talanga. Plasencia’s Jamastran tobacco is their own Corojo seed that they developed. The Cosecha 149 will be available in three sizes, which will all come packaged in 10-count boxes. The “Azuacualpa” is a Toro-sized cigar measuring 52 x 152mm (6″). The “La Vega” is a Robusto measuring 52 x 127mm (5″). The short and wide “Santa Fe’ is 60 x 120mm (4.75”). Cigars MSRP will range depending on the vitola in the $12-$14.50 per stick price point. Cigars are scheduled to ship later in October 2021.
