Quesada Tributo Cigars Shipping Soon
Posted: May 26, 2010
The Quesada Tributo cigar line, the second cigar to bear the Quesada name, following the 2009 release of the Quesada 35th Anniversary, will be in cigar shops next week. Brand owner Manuel Quesada told Cigar Insider the cigars would ship from his factory in the Dominican Republic by the end of May and ship from SAG Imports in Miami the first week of June.
Like the Quesada 35th cigar, the Tributo brand was made by Quesada and his team of daughters, nephews and nieces—known as the "Fifth Generation"—at Matasa (Manufactura de Tabacos S.A.) in Santiago.
The brand comes in four sizes. The Manolin measures 6 1/2 inches by 60 ring, and has a suggested retail price of $7.95. The Alvaro, the only figurado in the line, is a 6 by 52 belicoso, and sells for $7.50. The Alvarito, a 4 1/2 by 40 cigar, sells for $5.25, and the Julio, a 5 by 50 robusto, is $6.50.
