Quesada Cigar Just for Spain

The Quesadas, makers of Fonseca, have created a version of their Quesada brand specifically for the Spanish market. Quesada España began shipping in February.

The brand has three sizes, each retailing for around 6 euros (about $8.30) and the cigar is blended specifically for the Spanish market.

“The Spanish prefer a lighter wrapper and a Cuban-style taste,” said Raquel Quesada. The ring gauges are also thinner than the U.S. versions—there is no 60—ranging from 42 to 52.
