Quesada Cigars is one of those brands that always seems to have something new to show off for these types of trade shows, and the 2021 PCA Convention & Trade Show is no exception in that regard. The company not only brought a new line but also introduced a new version of its Oktoberfest blend.

The booth is noticeably smaller for Quesada this year—the wooden sections and shelves the company debuted at the 2019 IPCPR Convention & Trade Show have been replaced by a simple backdrop and table combination—but there is still plenty of room to show off all of the new products.

Casa Magna Magna Liga F

This more robust Casa Magna variant—Liga F stands for Liga Fuerte, which translates to “strong” from Spanish—is being produced at the company’s Tabacos de Exportación factory in the Dominican Republic. For those wondering about the name, that’s the formal name of the factory, which was previously referred to as The Quesada Factory.

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.
