Quesada shared a booth with some of the brands they distribute and/or blend for out of their Quesada Cigars factory in the Dominican Republic. Switching gears from past years, the different brands had their own focus in other areas of the booth, such as Matilde and Regius displaying their blends in separate, glass pillar displays.

Casa Magna Jalapa Claro

Based on the blend that made the brand famous with the #1 Cigar of the Year pick in 2008 by Cigar Aficionado, Quesada showcased the new Jalapa Claro edition. The difference is the new Claro wrapper from Jalapa, Nicaragua – described as medium-bodied, balanced, and full-flavored. These were limited to 500 boxes and only available to show attendees – these retailers will begin receiving shipments directly following the show.

  • Toro: 6 x 58 ($7.65 SRP)
  • Toro Press: 6 x 50 ($6.79 SRP)
  • Robusto: 5½ x 54 ($6.65 SRP)

Fonseca Nicaragua

Quesada refers to their Fonseca line as, “The brand that got us started.” For the first time, the line has a Nicaraguan sibling: Fonseca Nicaragua. The blend is a Nicaraguan puro and is made at Quesada’s usual Nicaraguan partner, Plasencia Cigars, S.A. Pricing is similar to the traditional Fonseca, ranging from $5 – $6 MSRP.

Oktoberfest 2016

It’s the sixth annual release of Quesada’s popular seasonal blend, Oktoberfest. The cigars feature German-inspired artwork and are blended to pair with the Märzen-style beer of the fall season. In 2015, Quesada paired with the Plasencia family to introduce a new Nicaraguan maduro blend to pair with darker Märzen beers and the blend is back for 2016 in a new format.

The 2016 collection features seven vitolas (up from the six from 2015), two of which are new to the line. There is also a new Bavarian-style “brauhaus” box (shaped like a house) for the Nicaraguan blend and new limited edition 100-count humidors in a similar shape/design. These will be raffled off at Oktoberfest events this fall.
