In April, Manuel “Manolo” Quesada Jr. will turn 70 and has become common with celebratory occasions in the cigar industry, there will be a special cigar made, two in fact.

The Manuel Quesada 70 Limited Edition will be offered in a belicoso and toro, Quesada Jr.’s favorite sizes. The company has declined to talk about the blend, but Quesada Jr. did mention it during a Reddit AMA in December.

Being the old fart that I am, I turn 70 next April and, to celebrate, should I reach the date, there will be a Manuel Quesada 70th Limited Edition coming out in mid March 2017. Two sizes, a Belicoso and a Toro which are my two favorite sizes.

Quesada oftentimes shows off its bigger releases during Procigar, which begins Feb. 19 in the Dominican Republic.
