Gauntleys Tasting Events
Plasencia Cigar Evening - Wednesday 13th October - Single

In stock


The nights are maybe drawing in, but our cigar evenings continue unabated. October will see us tasting the delights of Plasencia from Nicaragua. One of the biggest tobacco producers in the world, Plasencia can their history all the way back to 1865 when Don Eduardo Plasencia left the Canary Islands in search of success and opportunity and started growing tobacco in Vuelta Abajo, Cuba. Things have not always been easy with each generation having at least one major setback, however, that has just made each generation stronger and more determined to succeed. Eventually ending up in Nicaragua (after a false start or two!) they are now one of the major players in the industry.

There will be two cigars on the night - our warm-up act will be the Plasencia Reserva 1898 Corona (rrp £11.13 each). This is the entry-level Plasencia, but don't let that put you off! Whereas most entry-level cigars can be more miss than hit the Plasencia is bang on the money delivering plenty of rich flavours and a decent smoke.

Our second cigar is a SHOWSTOPPER! First off it is made using an amazing blend of aged tobaccos which are carefully blended to produce a moderately full-bodied, yet quite elegant smoke. If that was its only selling point it would still be a mighty fine cigar. What makes this even more desirable is its shape. The cigar is box-pressed. Nothing unusual in that apart from the fact it is HEXAGONAL in shape! Measuring 6 inches by 60 ring gauge, this is a big cigar and will offer up almost 2 hours of enjoyment on the night

The evening will be held at our favourite new venue, Thea Caffea on Low Pavement here in Nottingham and is priced at £30 per head. Doors open at 6.15 pm for a prompt 7 pm start.
