Fonseca Nicaragua Coming at IPCPR 2016


The partnership between the Quesada and Plasencia families is known for Casa Magna, but now the two families are extending it over to a different brand, Fonseca.

At the 2016 IPCPR Convention & Trade Show, Quesada will show off Fonseca Nicaragua, a Plasencia-made Nicaraguan puro. The cigar uses tobaccos from Estelí, Jalapa and Ometepe, three of Nicaragua’s four primary growing regions.

It will come in three sizes: Robusto (5 1/2 x 54, $5.79), Toro (6 x 50, $5.99) and Petite Corona (5 x 42, $4.95). All three come in boxes of 20.

“Because this is the first time we will make a Fonseca outside of the Dominican Republic we wanted it to create a special cigar that everyone can afford to smoke and so we approached this project with the concept of creating a $10-12 cigar for $4-6,” said Terence Reilly, general manager of Quesada Cigars, in a press release. “The result is a complex, nuanced cigar that we believe will be the best value on the market.”

The 2016 IPCPR Convention & Trade Show begins July 25 in Las Vegas. Reilly said the cigars will begin shipping “right after the show.”
