Plasencia Cigars, an esteemed small-scale Nicaraguan brand, has recently broadened its prestigious Alma Fuerte Colorado Claro line with an exciting new addition – the Robustus II. This Robusto-sized cigar enriches the collection, introducing a third size variant that cigar aficionados have eagerly anticipated. The Robustus II, notable for its 5 1/8 inches by 55 ring gauge dimensions, is now available for purchase in sleek 10-count boxes at select retailers.
The Alma Fuerte Colorado Claro, unveiled in 2021, represents an innovative take on Plasencia’s original Alma Fuerte range. This line is characterized predominantly by its distinct wrapper choice. Unlike the original line’s darker cover leaf, the Colorado Claro opts for a significantly lighter wrapper. This variation, known as the Colorado claro, is meticulously cultivated in the fertile soils of Jalapa. Undergoing an extensive aging process of ten years, this wrapper imbues the cigars with a unique depth and complexity of flavor.
Careful adjustments have been made to the Colorado Claro’s blend to harmonize with its lighter wrapper while maintaining the signature all-Nicaraguan tobacco profile that the Plasencia family is renowned for. This nuanced blending ensures a balanced yet distinct smoking experience, setting it apart.
The journey of the Colorado Claro line began with the singular, hexagonally-shaped Sixto I. Following its success, 2022 saw the introduction of a toro-sized variant, the Nestor IV, further diversifying the line’s offerings. The latest Robustus II, however, marks a departure from previous designs, being the first in the Alma Fuerte series to be rolled in the round. This departure from the traditional box-pressed sizes offers cigar lovers a fresh tactile and aesthetic experience.
Each Robustus II cigar carries a suggested retail price of $21.50, reflecting its premium quality and the meticulous craftsmanship that goes into its creation. Both the Alma Fuerte and Alma Fuerte Colorado Claro cigars are expertly crafted at the Plasencia Cigars S.A facility in Nicaragua, a testament to the Plasencia family’s dedication to producing some of the finest cigars in the world.
With the introduction of the Robustus II, Plasencia Cigars continues to cement its reputation as a purveyor of high-quality, innovative cigar products, offering discerning smokers an expanded array of choices within the celebrated Alma Fuerte Colorado Claro line.
