IPCPR 2015: Quesada Cigars


The 2015 IPCPR Convention & Trade Show was a big one not only for Quesada Cigars, but also for the various brands that the company distributes.

Quesada Casa Magna Marcus Aurelius


Casa Magna D. Magnus II Marcus Aurelius
First up is a new vitola in the Casa Magna line, the Casa Magna D. Magnus II Marcus Aurelius, a 6 x 64/46 corneta made in the same Bic-lighter pressing as the Tiberius vitola. The new cigar will retail for $8.95 and is limited to 1,000 boxes of 10 that will ship to retailers in August.

Next up are two new sizes in Quesada’s Oktoberfest line, the Double Bock and the Das Brauhaus, both of which will ship to retailers in August. They are part of Oktoberfest Nicaragua, two limited Nicaraguan puros in the Oktoberfest line that are made by Plasencia in Nicaragua.

Quesada Oktoberfest Das Brouhouse

The Oktoberfest Das Brahaus is a 4 1/2 x 60 double perfecto with pigtail that will retail for $7.50 each. The cigars are packaged in boxes of 24 made to look like houses and only 500 boxes will be available.

Quesada Oktoberfest Double Bock


The second new vitola in the Oktoberfest line is the Double Bock, a 7 x 47 churchill that will retail for $8.95 and is packed in boxes of 10 with production limited to 1,000 boxes.

Quesada Oktoberfest New Bands

In addition to the two new vitolas, Quesada’s Oktoberfest line is also getting a new secondary band, which will feature the year prominently displayed.

Finally, Quesada was showing off a new Matilde Cigar Co. blend, the Matilde Oscura, which will debut in three different vitolas, all sold in 20-count boxes: a Corona (5 1/2 x 44, $7.50), Robusto (5 1/4 x 50, $8) and Toro Bravo (6 1/2 x 54, $8.50.) While a release date has not been set, the blend includes a Mexican San Andrés wrapper covering a Sumatra binder as well as filler tobaccos from the Dominican Republic, Nicaragua and the United States.

Quesada recently became the distributor for Matilde in the U.S.

About the author

I have been smoking cigars for over eight years. A documentary wedding photographer by trade, I spent seven years as a photojournalist for the Dallas Morning News and the Fort Worth Star Telegram. I started the cigar blog SmokingStogie in 2008 after realizing that there was a need for a cigar blog with better photographs and more in-depth information about each release. SmokingStogie quickly became one of the more influential cigar blogs on the internet, known for reviewing preproduction, prerelease, rare, extremely hard-to-find and expensive cigars. I am a co-founder of halfwheel and now serve as an editor for halfwheel.
