Casa Magna Colorado Gets Pressed

Casa Magna Colorado Gets Pressed

The Casa Magna Colorado brand from S.A.G. Imports Inc. is adding three new box-pressed sizes to its portfolio of otherwise straight-sided parejo cigars. Made for brand-owner Manuel Quesada by Nestor Plasencia in Nicaragua, Casa Magna Colorado was released in 2008 and gained notoriety when the Robusto took Cigar Aficionado’s Cigar of the Year award shortly after.

The brand is made entirely of Nicaraguan tobacco, and the new sizes will be the first box-pressed cigars in the line. Packaged in boxes of 20, the thick, squared-off smokes are the Gordo Real, which measures 6 1/4 inches by 60 ring gauge; the Toro, 6 by 50; and the Short Robusto at 4 1/4 by 54. Retail prices should fall in the $6.95 to $8.95 range.

Casa Magana Colorado is also adding an immense 6 inch by 64 cigar aptly named the Gigantor. Formerly made as a retailer exclusive, Gigantor—which is not box-pressed—is now set for national distribution and retails for $8.24. The new additions bring the Casa Magna Colorado line to 15 sizes.

Look for ratings on the new sizes in an upcoming issue of Cigar Insider.
