First there was Casa Magna, now there is Vega Magna.
Quesada Cigars has announced its latest release, a three-size line focused on Dominican tobaccos aged in a traditional manner.
“The use of Dominican Tercio-aged tobaccos from as early as 2001, sorted and fermented with the extreme care, makes this blend extremely unique,” said Manuel “Manolo” Quesada Jr., the company’s president, in a press release. “The tercio aging, over long periods of time bring out wonderful complexity, that help create a sweet, rich full-bodied blend with notes of cocoa, dried fruits and cedar.”
The tercios are a way of wrapping a large number of tobaccos in royal palm leaves, almost like a large present.
Vega Magna uses an Ecuadorian sun-grown wrapper over a variety of Dominican secos, visos and ligeros.
- Vega Magna Robusto (5 1/2 x 54)
- Vega Magna Belicoso (7 x 52)
- Vega Magna Toro (6 x 50)
It will be sold in boxes of 10, with artwork made by Dominican artist Pragmy Marichal.
While Vega Magna will be an ongoing production, only one pair of rollers is producing the cigar, meaning production will be limited. It is expected to begin shipping this fall.
