Plasencia Cigars introduced an excellently constructed cigar with a feature that was hard to ignore. The Plasencia Alma Fuerte Sixto II Hexagon brought a new look to the cigar market, a cigar in a hexagon shape. With deeply rooted love of agriculture and respect for the natural word, the Plasencia’s applied biomimicry when creating this cigar. The unique shape imitates the honeycomb, borrowing from nature, this shape allows to fit the most area with the least perimeter. This shape provides a more complex smoking expression due the pressing of the cigar into a hexagon shape. The new shape brought forth a new way to enjoy cigars. A smashing success, the hexagon shaped cigar became Plasencia’s number one selling cigar. The Plasencia family felt it was time create a line extension to the Plasencia Alma Fuerte Hexagon. This result is the Plasencia Alma Fuerte Sixto I Hexagon- Colorado Claro.
What sets this blend apart from its predecessor is a slight tweaking of the binder and filler which is housed in an incredibly unique wrapper. The Colorado Claro wrapper which comes from the vast Plasencia tobacco library was aged for 10 years, which results in a smoother smoking experience. Smokers will experience notes of cocoa, almonds, and transitioning to a hint of nutmeg and cedar in the final notes.
