Plasencia 1865, renowned globally for its premium tobacco cultivation since its founding in 1865, proudly announces the release of the Alma del Fuego Ometepe Edición Limitada. This exceptional blend stands out as the first and only cigar featuring a wrapper made entirely from Ometepe-grown tobacco, named Hoja del Fuego by the Plasencia family. Limited to just 1,000 boxes, which double as luxury humidors, this ultra-premium offering is priced at an MSRP of $100 per cigar. Each cigar is elegantly encased in a hand-blown glass tube, reflecting the meticulous craftsmanship behind this unique release.


The Plasencia family drew deep inspiration for this blend from the rich indigenous mythology surrounding the island of Ometepe in Nicaragua. The formation of Ometepe, with its two towering volcanoes emerging from Lake Nicaragua, is steeped in ancient lore. The name “Ometepe” itself originates from the Nahuatl words “OME” (two) and “TEPETL” (mountain). Early indigenous people revered Ometepe as their promised land, a sacred site believed to be the dwelling place of the gods. The Alma del Fuego Ometepe Edición Limitada is a homage to this revered land and its storied past.

Néstor Andres Plasencia, a fifth-generation member of the Plasencia family and board member, expressed his pride in this milestone: “This cigar is a remarkable work of art. Since 1865, we have nurtured and cultivated tobacco, and at last, we have successfully grown a wrapper of unparalleled beauty in Ometepe, Nicaragua. The island of Ometepe holds great significance to our family, as it has to the indigenous peoples of this region. We celebrate this achievement with the Plasencia Alma del Fuego Ometepe Edición Limitada.

This exclusive release is available in a Torpedo 6×54 size, with each box of 20 cigars priced at $2,000. The blend is a celebration of both the Plasencia family’s enduring legacy in tobacco cultivation and the cultural heritage of Ometepe. The Alma del Fuego Ometepe Edición Limitada is not just a cigar but a tribute to the land, the people, and the enduring spirit that has shaped this exceptional creation.

For those seeking an extraordinary smoking experience, the Plasencia Alma del Fuego Ometepe Edición Limitada offers a unique journey into the heart of Nicaraguan tradition and excellence in cigar craftsmanship. This limited edition release is poised to become a coveted item among collectors and aficionados who appreciate the deep connection between heritage and the finest quality tobacco.
