Sencillo Black is a new twist on the Sencillo theme. Like Sencillo Platinum (the first release of the Sencillo brand), it’s a truly extraordinary cigar that is smooth enough and inexpensive enough to smoke every day. Yet Sencillo Black has a distinctive flavor all its own. If Sencillo Platinum is the cabernet of the line, Sencillo Black is the pinot noir.
Plasencia, highly respected cigar maker, who is also the largest tobacco grower in Nicaragua, produces Sencillo Black for Keith K. Park at his Nicaraguan factory, using five different tobaccos. The filler is blended from two Cuban-seed tobaccos grown in Nicaragua and Honduras – Ligero Habano Jalapa (Nicaragua) and Ligero Habano Jamastran (Honduras) – as well as Viso San Andres tobacco grown in Mexico. The Habano Colorado wrapper and Habano Jalapa binder are also Cuban-seed, Nicaraguan-grown leaves. The five different tobaccos blend perfectly to give Sencillo Black a consistent yet complex flavor.
According to Keith K. Park, Founder and CEO of Prometheus International, Inc. and God of Fire, Inc., “Nestor and I had been talking about doing a project together for many years. When we decided to add a Nicaraguan blend to our brand portfolio, Nestor and I worked on the Sencillo Black blend together for over a year. We are going to age Sencillo Black for 6 months or longer before release in order to deliver a more polished and flavorful taste to our customers.”
All five sizes of the Sencillo Black have a similarly smooth character, but each one emphasizes different aspects of the flavor profile-and each one provides a unique smoking experience. Sample them all to find your favorite, or simply keep a stock of each one on hand to suit any setting.
