The Puro Placer is the epitome of smoothness and mildness, yet bursting with flavor and is handmade in Nicaragua. “Puro placer” literally means “pure pleasure”. “Puro” in Spanish means “pure” and is a slang word in Latin America for a really good cigar –“a pure one”. The Puro Placer blend is both mild and flavorful. The mildness comes from the Shade Wrapper, the flavor comes from the Nicaraguan Seco and Ligero filler leaves. Only the finest quality tobaccos are used in the making of this fine blend. The Puro Placer is manufactured with a Connecticut Shade wrapper. Traditionally in the cigar culture, the Connecticut Shade wrapper is valued as a high quality tobacco. The Puro Placer is priced very low for the quality of the cigar. Many similar cigars are priced in the $6 – $12 range.
