Casa Magna is the brainchild of two of the cigar industry's most revered manufacturers, Manuel Quesada and Nestor Plascencia. This Nicaraguan Puro is full-bodied and moderately priced. Comprised of Ligero and Viso fillers from several different regions of Nicaragua and a beautiful Cuban-seed Ligero Colorado wrapper, the Casa Magna is hand-rolled in Plascencia's Nicaraguan Factory. The result is a smooth, rich, full-bodied cigar with undertones of coffee and sweet spices. A well-made slow-burner at a great price.
Cigar Aficionado rated Casa Magna the #1 cigar of 2008 with an outstanding 93-point rating. Additionally, it's still going strong, earning the #10 spot for 2011.

“Bitter sweet bourbon cask wood, dark rich molasses and pepper. Packed solid in a reddish brown colorado wrapper with a smooth even draw. This cigar is as spicy as it gets with consistent flavor from start to finish, right down to the nub. The fullest flavored Nicaraguan out there.”

“I let this bad chicken sit in the humi for 3 months and Zing! I fingertip scalded down to the dubisis. CIs description of coffee and nuts is very accurate, as a puro you get a very powerful but singular flavor with coffee the dominant taste. One of the best out of Nicaragua and worth every penny ... buy a box of 25 plus 2freebies today!!!!”

“I've had this cigar in 3 different vitolas; corona, robusto, and belicoso. All provided great, full flavor with no hint of harshness or bitterness. The flavors are complex without overdoing it, and it provides spice without swamping the base flavors. This is one I always keep in the humidor.”
“....I'm very new to cigars and smoked a few over 100 in the last 4 months. This bad boy has been sitting in my humidor for about 3 months and is a total gem. Burns perfect and tastes even better. I will definitely be coming back for more.

“The best cigars I've ever tasted. Even better than the Cohiba Esplendidos a friend brought me direct from Cuba. Rich, complex, very smooth, beautiful draw, good down to the very end....”

“A great tasting cigar with a very smooth and balanced flavor. The aroma is nice too. I am enjoying this one all the way to my fingertips. The Casa Magna Oscuro is even better. If you like a hint of licorice then you will like the Oscuro. Nice brand of cigars.”

“Maybe I got a bad one, I don't know. A number one rating and all positive reviews can't mean I'm living in some parallel universe. Mine was a tough draw, had to be lit frequently and had a lot of flavor but I could not identify it. Five came in the sampler so I'll have another go at it.”
