The third blend in Nestor Plasencia's Alma series, Alma del Fuego translates to Soul of Fire. The name is a nod to the cigar's make-up of approximately 75% Ometepe Tobacco. Much further South than traditional Nicaraguan cigar tobacco growing regions, Ometepe is a small island formed by two volcanos. Traditionally, Ometepe is used sparingly for it's robusto, mineral flavors. Plasencia has balanced this cigar perfectly with a sungrown Jalapa wrapper that provides enough sweetness to make for a beautifully complex and balanced cigar.
