A pair of new releases from Quesada Cigars will be appearing at the PCA trade show in Las Vegas next month: a tweaked version of the company’s limited-edition Oktoberfest blend to celebrate the line’s 10-year anniversary and a new size for Quesada 1974. Retailers can expect both to start shipping this September.

The German-themed Oktoberfest cigar was created in 2011 as a seasonal release meant to be paired with the Märzen-style beers served in Munich during Oktoberfest. The cigar is coming back with a new blend: a dark Mexican San Andrés wrapper paired with Dominican binder and fillers. According to Manuel Quesada of Quesada Cigars, the changed blend was a result of customer feedback. The company told Cigar Aficionado that the new cigars are medium in strength.

Along with the new Oktoberfest cigars, the regular production Quesada 1974 line is getting a new size.

Oktoberfest 10th Anniversary will come in three sizes: Das Boot, a torpedo measuring 6 inches by 52 ring gauge ($9.90); Uber, 6 by 65 ($10.80); and Bavarian, 5 1/2 by 52 ($9.50). All three cigars will ship in boxes of 10.

The regular production Quesada 1974 line, which debuted in Spain in early 2019 to celebrate Manuel Quesada’s 45 years in business, is getting a new size. The Toro will bring the line up to five vitolas. The cigar measures 6 by 52, has a suggested retail price of $9.25 and will ship in boxes of 10.

All of these cigars are made at Quesada’s Tabacos de Exportación Inc. (TABADEX) factory in the Dominican Republic.
