Manuel Quesada has been making cigars since 1974. His original cigars were mild bodied, most of them a blend of Dominican filler and binder tobaccos cloaked with light Connecticut-seed wrappers. His latest endeavors are bolder, more vibrant smokes. The Casa Magna is his greatest innovation. He joined forces with Nicaragua's largest grower of cigar tobacco, Nestor Plasencia, and created this blend in Plasencia's Segovia Cigar factory. Using Cuban-seed tobacco grown in two very different regions of Nicaragua: Estel (which tends to be strong) and Jalapa (which is more balanced and elegant) they combine to create a full-flavored cigar, full of rich coffee notes and balanced by a cedary sweetness with a hint of raisins.
Casa Magna Robusto cigars have earned one of the highest accolades given to premium cigars. They were recognized as Cigar Aficionado's #1 cigar of the year in 2008 and placed in the top 25 the 3 years following. A true classic from a cigar legend and perfect for any full bodied fan!
