Casa Magna Domus Magnus Gets New Sizes

Three sizes of S.A.G.’s Casa Magna Domus Magnus have been added to the limited-edition brand. A collaboration between Manuel Quesada of Matasa and Nestor Plasencia, Domus Magnus was released last year as a follow-up to the core Casa Magna line and came in two box-pressed sizes, Optimus and Prime.

“After we finished making the 5,000 boxes of Optimus and Prime we still had very high demand,” said Terence Reilly of Matasa/S.A.G. “We had enough tobacco to make an additional 30,000 cigars so we made 1,000 boxes of three different sizes.”

The sizes are Centuriones, 4 3/4 inches by 50 ring; Praetores, 7 by 56; and Bellatores a 6 by 54 torpedo. They retail for $7.95 to $10.05 and come in boxes of 10.

Like the original release, the new sizes are also box-pressed with pigtails, except the Bellatores. In keeping with the original theme, “centurions” were the equivalents of sergeants in the Roman army; “praetores” were Roman officials; and “bellatores” were soldiers.

The blend hasn’t changed, consisting of all Nicaraguan tobacco and a sun-grown wrapper from Jalapa. Domus Magnus is made in Nicaragua at Plasencia Cigars S.A. in Estelí.
