Later this month, Oktoberfest will formally kick off in Germany, but Quesada’s Oktoberfest celebrations are already underway.

As it has done since 2011, the company will release the Quesada Oktoberfest, a cigar made to pair with the dark marzen-style beer that is celebrated at Oktoberfest. This year, The Cigar Shop, a Carolina-based retailer, will be taking part in the celebrations with an exclusive.

It’s called Bayern, the German word for Bavaria and best known for the Munich-based soccer team, a 6 x 51/58/60 pyramid. It’s based on the Fonseca Triangular, a super-sized version of the pyramid vitola.

“The Triangular has been such an iconic vitola that has such as rich history,” said Mark Boley, co-owner of The Cigar Shop, in a press release. “The Oktoberfest has been an enormously popular line with our customers and now we have an opportunity to bring the Triangular size to this great line. It’s going to make this year’s Oktoberfest celebrations even better.”

While the blend is tweaked, it remains a Dominican puro.

Production is limited to 200 boxes of 10 cigars with pricing set at $8.97 per cigar.

The Quesada Oktoberfest Bayern went on sale today at the company’s stores in Monroe, N.C. and Myrtle Beach, S.C., as well as its online store.
