It was a fantastic smoke when it was named Cigar of the Year in 2008 and the Casa Magna Colorado Robusto remains a fantastic smoke today. Back then, it retailed for $5.25. Considering inflation, the $8.90 price tag means it remains a bargain. The tobacco types and blend are still the same, but Quesada Cigars has brought production of Casa Magna in-house, moving it from Nicaragua to the Dominican Republic. One would be hard pressed to detect any changes, as the smoke still entices us with its rich core of dark chocolate, nutmeg and wood. Some spicy elements of red pepper and a touch of bitter aperitif keep the palate engaged before the long, savory finish.
