St. Patrick’s Day isn’t taking a year off and neither is Quesada.
The original version of the Quesada Keg Edition will return for 2017 in the form of four vitolas. Three are the same vitolas as last year, the other is a new 6 x 54 belicoso size. All four sizes are limited to 500 units of 20 cigars, which are designed wooden cylinders designed to look like beer barrels.
In addition to the Belicoso ($7.95), The Quesada Keg Edition 2017 will be offered in Lonsdale (6 x 44, $5.95), Toro (6 x 50, $7.95) and Toro Gordo (6 x 60, $8.95).
The original Keg Edition was created in honor of St. Patrick’s day. Quesada will once again formally launch the cigar in January that way consumers can purchase the cigar before the March holiday. In late 2016, Quesada added the Holiday Keg for the annual winter holidays.
Plasencia Cigars S.A. produces the Keg Edition, which uses a Pennsylvania broadleaf wrapper over a Nicaraguan binder and Nicaraguan fillers.
