For the second year running, Quesada will release a limited edition cigar in collaboration with the Plasencia family to coincide with St Patrick’s Day. As with their long-running Oktoberfest cigars, the blend is intended to pair with a beer to fit the season—with an Irish Stout being the being the intended target.

Due to the overwhelming success of last year’s keg project, we are excited to re-release the Quesada Keg. Most importantly, the blend and pricing remains the same despite the increased costs for tobacco and upgrades to the band and packaging. It’s a great cigar to celebrate a great day.Terence Reilly

The 2016 edition of Quesada Keg features the same blend as the original, with updated packaging and added sizes. Originally only released in a Toro format, Keg will now feature a 6 x 44 Lonsdale (retail $5.95), 6 x 50 Toro – (retail $7.95), and a 6 x 60 Toro Gordo (retail $8.95).

Packaging has been dramatically updated, replacing the colorful, holiday-inspired clovers with a more refined look—borrowing from the Guinness branding. The cigars will again be packaged in keg-shaped jars, which have also been redesigned for the new year.
