Quesada to Debut Limited Edition Casa Magna
Posted: June 13, 2011
Casa Magna, the bargain-priced Nicaraguan cigar brand that took the cigar world by storm when it was named Cigar of the Year by Cigar Aficionado in 2008, will soon have a new, limited-edition version.
Casa Magna Domus Magnus, made at Plasencia Cigars S.A. in Estelí,
Nicaragua, and blended by Manuel Quesada and the Plasencia family, will
come in two sizes. The Maximus will measure 6 1/2 inches by 55 ring, and
the Optimus will measure 5 3/4 by 52. They will retail for $9.95 and
$8.95, respectively, and will debut next month.
The cigars will be box pressed-a first for the brand-and both sizes will have pigtails. They will come in ten-count boxes.
While the cigars are made entirely from Nicaraguan tobaccos, they will be quite different in style from the Casa Magna Colorado and Oscuro varieties that are already on sale.
"It's a totally different blend," said Quesada. "The wrapper is a sun-grown Jalapa wrapper, and we have blended for the wrapper. It's a totally different taste. I would consider them a little stronger and a totally different direction in the taste."
