Quesada Tributo

Tribut-ohh!

Quesada Tributo hails from the MATASA factory, the home of Fonseca, and the same makers as the 93-rated Casa Magna - so their reputation for quality precedes them. But aside for that, Tributo is an extremely memorable cigar, one that's entirely different than anything else ever produced by this legendary Dominican factory.

It starts with a very unique wrapper leaf, a dark, oily hybrid tobacco grown in Ecuador which showcases the fusion of 4 different seeds: Habano 2000, Corojo, Habano Vuelta Arriba, and Sumatra. The resulting flavor is unlike anything else. This special wrapper, when combined with a Habano ligero wrapper and a bold blend of Dominican and Nicaraguan ligeros produces a full-flavored, full-bodied smoke that's very well balanced and loaded with complexity. Rich notes of earth, coffee, pepper, leather, and nuts coat the palate before a long, slightly sweet finish. Delicious is an understatement, this is most definitely an outstanding cigar.

Quesada Tributo received a solid, 90-point cigar, commenting: 

"The smoke of this dark, oily robusto has a rich mouthfeel, offering red wine notes, nutty flavors and a touch of tanginess on the finish."

Customer Reviews of “Quesada Tributo”
“This is an interesting cigar. Tributo is named for 4 members of the Quesada family that were killed in a plane crash years ago. Firm to the touch it is filled with tobacco's. The wrapper has some oil and the dark color is attractive. This is a great change of pace cigar. It has wine and fruit overtones, maybe plum like tasting with nuts and a touch of spice. Slow burning and well constructed. A lot of smoke comes from the 60 ring size. Enjoy this cigar with a nice red wine after dinner.”
RW of Hopewell Junction, NY
“I enjoyed the Alvaro (torpedo) the other night ... good burn/draw, rich flavor ... would buy again.”
SL of Mclean, VA
“WOW!! Don't get much better than this. Cant get enough of the Manolin, big, rich , tasty, volumes of great smoke. Just a pleasure. 2 hours of pure bliss. Burn and draw are always spot on. Try 'em, you'll like 'em!!!!”

“Received a Tributo robusto in a freebie deal & knowing nothing about it, put it away in my travel humidor. That was weeks ago. I found it today, while cleaning out the humi & thought I would give it a try. The 1st thing I noticed is the very full bodied flavors, that are delivered with a perfect draw. Woodsy & distinct, I attribute the power & flavor to the dynamic duo wrappers. One hybrid that is dark, oily & delicious. The other a ligero offering. The Dominican long fillers seem to tame the wrappers, in that while this is certainly a full bodied vitola, it is not harsh or cloying. The ash is firm & the burn, straight & true. This is not the normal Fonseca cigar. I have tried quite a few & most are mild to medium. The Arana is bold, but this blend is powerful to the point of making me a bit dizzy. To me, that is the true Cubanesque profile. Bold, strong, yet ultimately most powerful in the gut & the head. I thoroughly enjoyed this cigar. It is quite a bit different than I expected. A powerful, pleasant surprise. I will definitely be looking for a deal on this one!”
BB of LOVELAND, OH
“I have to agree with the above comments, and add my own praise about this stick. The complexity and continuously changing flavor profile is simply outstanding. I'm really glad to see that the family started releasing their own blends under their own label -- this cigar is awesome!”
BB of Esmont, VA
“Smoking the 1st of a five pak of the Alvarito. This is an awesome tasting cigar, wow ! Half way at 40 minutes ; lots of smoke, creamy and complex. Very exciting to find cigars like this;ordering more right now!”
JM of ZIMMERMAN, MN
“Got to agree with BB except the strength of my robusto was not as stong - or maybe diff tastes or more humi time?? But had nice flavor, very tasty. Advise you to give this one a try.”
BM of MACON, GA
“Not usually drawn towards full bodied sticks. Received this one in my Fonseca Anthology Sampler. Wow, very smooth for a full body cigar. Glad I got two in the sampler. You'll be too!! Thanks CI...”
