IPCPR 2014: Quesada

Null

Quesada’s booth this year was much different from last year’s. A little more enclosed, private and extensive the booth’s main centerpiece was a large cylindrical show case that had all the company’s products in it. With semi-difficult to remove plexiglass, the case was delightfully intact unlike last year which had a large number of the cigars handed out from the boxes by the time we got to photograph the booth.

Heisenberg Tray

Heisenberg by Quesada
While there wasn’t anything new for the Heisenberg cigar itself, Quesada did have a new display case for the onebox in each size of the line.

Trelos Psaria by Charlie Moore

Trelos Psaria
Also being shown off was the cigar that they had made with Charlie Moore, a television fishing personality. The company debuted the product in late March, although it’s been limited to the northeastern region. The trade show was considered the cigar’s full launch.

Quesada Petites

Quesada Petites
A new product this year are the Quesada Petites, a 4 x 25 cigar made with Dominican long filler and an Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper. They are packaged 10 to a box and retail for $11 per box.

Quesada Big Bang Sampler

Quesada Big Bang Sampler
The sampler is made up of five big ring gauge cigars. The five-pack is made up of the Oktoberfest The Über (6 x 65), Quesada 40th Anniversary Toro Real (6 x 65), Fonseca Cubano Limitado 665 (6 x 65), Fonseca Cubita Nouveau Gordo (6 x 60) and a new unbanded 6 x 60 made at Quesada Cigars in the Dominican Republic. Each sampler is priced at $29.95 and will come in trays featuring 10 five-packs.

Quesada Oktoberfest 2014

Quesada Oktoberfest
Lastly is the Oktoberfest line. This year Quesada gave the line an updated look with brand new bands and tweaked box art. Matching a little closer to a German beer label, the new band is a little more cohesive with the beer theme the cigar has. Though there is a new 6 3/4 x 50/33 Salomon Press that will be only available at events it wasn’t shown off at the show.

Regius Seleccion Orchant 2014

Regius Seleccion Orchant 2014
There will be 600 boxes of a 4 3/4 x 52 robusto and a 5 1/2 x 52 torpedo known as Camapna. It’s a Nicaraguan puro made at Plasencia Cigars S.A.

Quesada Cigars is responsible for the U.S. distribution of both Trelos Psaria and Regius.

About the author

I have been smoking cigars since 2005 and reviewing them as a hobby since 2010. Initially I started out small with a 50-count humidor and only smoking one or two cigars a month. Not knowing anybody else that smoked cigars, it was only an occasional hobby that I took part in. In March of 2010 I joined Nublive and Cigar Asylum, connecting me with many people who also shared an interest in cigars. Reading what they had to say about brands I had never heard of, I quickly immersed myself in the boutique brands of the industry and it was then that cigars transformed from a hobby into a passion. Besides my cigar hobby and job in the IT industry, my wife and I love traveling, trying new restaurants and relaxing at home with our two dogs.
