Plasencia Cigars, the leading producer of premium cigars and the largest producer of tobacco in Central America, was awarded 1st place in a consumer cigar blind tasting held by Manuel’s, one of the finest and most renowned cigar shops in Zürich, Switzerland. The award was conferred for its Alma del Campo Tribu cigar, one of the company's first brand name cigars to be introduced to the market.

This is the second time Manuel’s hosts a blind tasting among its consumers – this time around with the timely theme of soccer. Broken into four rounds over the span of four weeks, with half of the top-rated cigars moving up to the next round, the search for the best cigar in the world consisted of 16 Robusto-size cigars, eight Cubanos, and eight non-Cubanos, including products from Nicaragua, Honduras, Costa Rica, and the Dominican Republic.

Cigars were reviewed and judged on a preliminary maximum 50-point scale based on their processing and construction (10 points), aroma and taste (20 points), smoke (10 points), and overall quality (10 points).

In the final round, Alma Del Campo and Cohiba Robusto were then rated by approximately 100 consumers under the same categories.

Plasencias goal is to use the best leaves of aged tobacco exclusively in their cigars leaving them in the hands of the best collaborators in the fields and artists of the factories.

Plasencia's best and most exclusive aged tobacco is used for this series, the tobacco is aged for at least 10 years.

Tasting Notes

Plasencia Reserva 1898 vaunts its goodness in every way. The leaves are derived from the finest tobaccos grown in Nicaragua and Honduras. The result is a full-flavored delight, with chocolate notes hitting the palate at first. This flavor profile is laced with hints of walnut, dried figs and leather, followed by subtle notes of pepper.

Excellent new world cigar. Had a RyJ No.2 yesterday and it beat it by a country mile in all aspects. Spicy from the start, though took 10-15 for it to really get going. Heavy on the nicotine - so make sure youre seated! Very complex flavour profile, easy draw and even burn. No issues with this one at all. Glad I bought a few!

Amazing value for the UK of this superb robusto blended with an aged Nicaraguan Jalapa wrapper, Honduras binder and aged Nicaraguan filler. The combination of this two countries deliver walnut, dry figs, leather and a hint of pepper on the palate. David - C.Gars Ltd Cigar Ambassador

These are a fabulous cigar. Straight from the humidor they pull superbly and have a great earthy taste. Around 40 minutes later it’s well past the band, but I do enjoy the tingle from these any time of the day delights. I can’t wait to try more of the Plasencia brand’s cigars. Amazing value, too.
