Plasencia Cigars has begun shipping a new size of its Alma Fuerte Sixto size, this time with a lighter wrapper.
The Alma Fuerte Natural Sixto II is the same size and price as the original Alma Fuerte Sixto II, a box-pressed 6 x 60 gordo priced at $21. While it remains a Nicaraguan puro, the wrapper used is a Colorado claro color that is lighter than the regular Alma Fuerte.
It’s a rather unique vitola with a hexagon box-press meaning there are six sides instead of the normal four sides that most box-pressed cigars have. To mimic that, the boxes are also shaped like hexagons.
