For the first time ever, a Fonseca will be made in Nicaragua. This summer at IPCPR the Quesada family will release the Fonseca Nicaragua, a Nicaraguan Puro made by the Plasencia Family in Estelí. Adding to the well-established Dominican Fonseca, the Fonseca Nicaragua is blended with tobaccos from Ometepe, Jalapa, and Estelí to capture the full complexity of flavors found in the country. Nearly equally as impressive as the cigars themselves is the price: MSRP will range from $4.99 to $5.95.
Terence Reilly of Quesada Cigars says: “Because this is the first time we will make a Fonseca outside of the Dominican Republic, we wanted to create a special cigar that everyone can afford to smoke and so we approached this project with the concept of creating a $10 – $12 cigar for $4 – $6. The result is a complex, nuanced cigar that we believe will be the best value on the market”.
The Fonseca Nicaragua comes in 3 popular sizes: a 6 x 50 Toro that retails for $5.99, a 51/2 x 54 Robusto at $5.79 and a 5 x 42 Petite Corona at $4.95. They’re boxed in 20’s.
