Cigar Review: Plasencia Alma Del Fuego Pantela

Initial Thoughts:

Plasencia is another brand I have a love/hate relationship with. After smoking two of the Plasencia Alma Fuerte Generacion Vs, I loved the brand. After trying the Alma del Campo, I didn't understand it and I wondered what the company was trying to accomplish.

So, today, with the Plasencia Alma Del Fuego, I'm… cautiously optimistic. This cigar has a dark wrapper that, like the Alma Fuerte, is fairly rugged looking. The wrapper isn't really smooth, it has some veins, but it looks tasty.

Final Thoughts:

My time with the Plasencia Alma Del Fuego was interesting. This cigar had a nearly perfect burn and the draw was practically flawless.

If you've tried other full-bodied cigars from Plasencia, I think you'll like the Alma Del Fuego as well. That said, I didn't like this one as much as the Alma Fuertes that I've had.

Because I'd smoke this cigar again, though I might try it in a different size, the Plasencia Alma Del Fuego earns a CigarScore of 4.
