Quesada Cigars has begun informing retailers that it will be taking a price increase to a number of its lines effective Feb. 1.

The increase varies from brand to brand, but averages 4 percent across the following brands:

  • Casa Magna Colorado
  • Casa Magna Jalapa Claro
  • Casa Magna D. Magnus II
  • Quesada Oktoberfest
  • Quesada Boveda Bags Display
  • House Blend
  • Alameda

A representative of the company told halfwheel that after not taking an increase in 2019, one was needed for 2020 due to rising costs for labor, raw material, as well as other cost-related factors.

I strive to capture the essence of a cigar and the people behind them in my work – every cigar you light up is the culmination of the work of countless people and often represents generations of struggle and stories. For me, it’s about so much more than the cigar – it’s about the story behind it, the experience of enjoying the work of artisans and the way that a good cigar can bring people together. In addition to my work with halfwheel, I’m the public address announcer for the Colorado Rockies and Arizona Diamondbacks during spring training, as well as for the Salt River Rafters of the Arizona Fall League, the WNBA's Phoenix Mercury and previously the Arizona Rattlers of the Indoor Football League. I also work in a number of roles for Major League Baseball, plus I'm a voice over artist. Prior to joining halfwheel, I covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for Examiner.com, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
