Casa Magna Corojo

A few years ago, Casa Magna made its debut. And the big-name, all-knowing rating panel immediately took notice in a major way, awarding Casa Magna an outstanding 93-rating an #1 ‘Cigar of the Year’ honors. But unlike the rest-of-class, this beauty was available and affordable. So the regular fellas like you and I took notice too, making Casa Magna a top-seller and a household name. Like Stu says: good ideas breed better ideas. The next big idea is here: Casa Magna Dominican Corojo, made in Manolo Quesada’s Dominican MATASA factory. And I’ll be the first in line to say Manolo nailed it.

​Casa Magna Dominican Corojo is an all Dominican puro that is expertly blended using all Cuban-seed Dominican long-fillers. A deliciously inviting Dominican Corojo wrapper is draped over this medium to full-bodied blend. Notes of earth, oak, coffee, and pepper linger on the palate, while clouds of smoke emanate with every puff of this rich flavorful cigar. Well balanced, quality blends like this don't come around too often, so sit down and enjoy this rich complex blend.

Good if you're only smoking half a cigar
Flavor was on par with other Casa Magnas, just a shade milder than a maduro. But every single cigar in the box dies in the same spot, about halfway through, even if I was in mid-puff. Tedious work getting it relit, not worth all the effort. Disappointing.

Not a good burn at all.
Not a good burn at all. Cigar tends to burn sideways and will not stay lit. I was hoping it was just the first one, no all are the same.

I enjoy a larger smoke, this fits the bill.
These 60ring Gran toro cigars have in general a smooth draw and even smoke - though there were a few duds. The taste is rich without bitterness. Overall a decent smoke. Recommended. 4 stars.

Good solid flavor
I picked these up in a sample pack and was quite surprised by the overall flavor. I now purchase these by the case. Its a medium type without a lot of bitterness. I like the Corojo's but on some of the less expensive ones may be a little bitter for a lack of a better word. This is a good cigar for the price

One of my favorite cigars!
The Casa Magna Corona is a favorite for me. Its the perfect combination of taste without being overly strong. And the corona, for me anyway, it the perfect size as it last about 45 minutes. The draw and the burn are near perfect. A great cigar.

Overall the cigars were solid as I ordered them twice. The cigars were a little hard and a few wrappers peeled. I just had to keep,them in my humidor longer than usual.

Good Value
Good cigar at a good price point. One in the box burned a little inconsistently, but not enough of an issue to prevent me from buying in the future.

Casa Magna Corojo Gran Toro
Recent order seemed to be of more consistent quality. Great cigar but previously had one out of five cigars not burn evenly and wrapper came apart

Lousy after the first 1/4th of every stick.
Bought 5 5 packs with a promo and was I ever disappointed!! The flavor and smoke quality in the first 1/4 of each cigar is delightful--- until it goes oit!!! And it did with every one I've smoked. CAN'T keep one lit for anything. After 3 sticks I decided to tear one apart and it was FULL of huge sticks and stems that should have been used in a fireplace!!!. Taste went harsh and every stick was a jekyll and hyde!!! Not a cheap stick by any means and even more costly as only 1/4 is smokable!!!....Can't recommend and I wont buy these again--- EVER!!!

good pairing with a nice bourbon or scotch.
beautiful construction. veining was almost not even there, the cap is the thickest I have seen, I don't see anyone having any cap issues with these, its the thickest cap I have seen. the burn I found a bit difficult to keep in check even with rolling the stick as I smoked it, yet the smoke was very nice and rich. the flavor was very oaky with some toast and a very slight sweetness I couldn't fully place but I will say is a berry. I really dint see how anyone could have had issues with these falling apart unless they didn't have a humidor to keep them in. I would easily buy them again if they were on a good deal. nothing against this stick at all but I always wait for deals to buy, that's just me.

Save your money
I would give it a zero star if I could. Good construction until you light it. runs like a rabbit. inconsistent burn. fell apart about half way and the flavor to beat is mediocre at best. Save for a better stick. Tried a second one just to be sure but ultimately had to return for refund. At lease that was painless thanks to CI customer service!!!

I great smoke all the way through...nice, heavy gray smoke. Perfect for a night time "deck" smoke or just as comfortable on the golf course.

Not as good as other Casa Magna cigars.
casa Magna makes some very good cigars. The Colorado and the Oscuro are very nice. The Dominican "Licey" is not as good. But OK if the price is right.

Not a fan of this one
Had 2 of these and threw the second one away after the first inch. Harsh but did have a good burn. Good construction but that's about it.

Customer Testimonials
Back in 2008 Manuel Quesada won "Cigar of The Year" honors with his blend of Casa Magna "Colorado", and it was/is a superb cigar. It has been a regular in my rotation ever since. He may have outdone himself with his latest creation Casa Magna "Dominican". I was fortunate enough to grab five 5.5x52 robusto grandes from CI about two months ago. I put 'em in the humi to rest and "uncorked" this one Saturday night 9/13/14. This is a very firm, well constructed stogie with a slightly veiny Corojo wrapper, triple cap, and a smooth easy draw. It is a medium-bodied smoke that burns cool and slow all the way; a slow-flavor starter in the early burn with just a trace of vanilla and cinnamon. Once you get into it about 1 1/2 inches the flavors start to come on subtly with notes to my palate of spice and cocoa - not harsh, more on the creamy side. A very pleasant mix. (Some of the other reviews talk of a peppery start that lingers throughout the smoking experience. Perhaps that part of my taste buds has died but I didn't even detect a hint of pepper in this stick.) I sent the one inch nub to it's grave after about 45+ blissful minutes and three Long Island Iced Tea's, and look forward to the remaining four siblings that are quietly aging in the humi.
Rich in flavor and a very lovely cigar in presentation.
This cigar got rave reviews and I bought five in a sampler deal. It burns fairly well, has a bit of a spicey taste and over all is a good smoke, not the super smoke I thought it might be. Good stick with a stiff night cap perhaps, would not recommend for beginners or a casual round on the links.
I do like these medium to full strength cigars. The Flight Sampler is the way to go at around $4 a pop.
Bought a box of these cigars after reading several positive reviews. I thought the first one I smoked may have been an abberation but after the third I can honestly say this is one bad smoke. In summation, I found the Casa Magna Dominican cigar having the following characteristics: 1) Soft and spongy 2) Irregular burn throughout with "touch-ups" necessary and an ugly ash 3) Most dissapointing an acrid flavor existed during of the entire cigar with no subtle hints of anything else. I smoked all to the last third of the Casa Magna Dominican in hopes of a better ending.....but, no......a bad experience to the last puff. There are much better cigars for the money and I wouldn't recommend this one brand to anyone.......even to your ex-brother-in-law or golfing buddies who generally smoke anything available.
Finally got a chance to smoke one of these last night, despite already stocking a box and some fivers at work. Putting the cart before the horse, but the original CM is quite tasty, and a relative bargain these days. The CMD is also a relative bargain, and as it turns out, a good one. Got a blast of pepper and some other heavy flavors to start, but the cigar smoothed out after about the first inch. Not tremendously complex, but a good cigar, and a solid medium-bodied smoke to my tastes. No regrets about having already stocked a bunch, and I will certainly recommend them to customers. Other than the CI description pegging these as medium-full (most cigars run about a half to full step in body as described here and (gasp) other retailers, so not taking issue with CI on this), I'd say the CI description is pretty equal to my experience. A good smoke, and one I recommend trying.
This is an excellent cigar!Very earthy, nutty,light spice,creamy-everything Steve said!Oh yeah, almost forgot,delicious aroma as well. Home run again for Sr.Quesada,thank you, C.I.!
After reading that this blend was designed to compete on the international market ie. Cubans, I am gladI ordered a Robusto 5 pack. These are hearty full flavored cigars. The wrapper is so dark my first thought was maduro, but it didn't have that kind of sweetness. With the moderate price these will go into my rotation.
As a cigar lover, I normally don't write bad reviews, as they are purely subjective; but this is one awful cigar. The flavor isn't bad, but you can tell that the various ages of the leaves is off because of the uneven burn and constant re-lights. I bought a five pack and can't wait to be done with it....

Apparently you guys like beer. I received a lot of feedback on the beer portion of my review. While I don’t want these reviews to lose their focus, I’ll gladly toss in some sidebars on craft beer from time to time. And since I just had two new (to me) IPAs this past weekend, I might as well tell you about them.
Great Lakes Chillwave Double IPA – A flavorful, 9.4% IPA that is extremely hop forward, but complemented with a strong note of pink grapefruit that’s crisp, somewhat bitter, and surprisingly refreshing. A must-try from a solid brewery.
Spring House The Astounding She Monster Mango IPA – This one surprised me. Big time. Not a huge mango fan, but I love IPAs, and I love Spring House’s other unique offerings, so I had to reach for it. A little lighter, at just 7.7%, no doubt floral, but mildly bitter with a noble mango-sweetness throughout. Not something I’d gravitate towards regularly, but definitely worth a try and re-try occasionally.
Now, for the cigar.
Casa Magna Dominican. Years back, legendary cigar-maker Manuel ‘Manolo’ Quesada spread his wings and created an entirely new line of handmades called Casa Magna. Soon after its release, Manolo’s efforts were rewarded by Cigar Aficionado, who named Casa Magna the Number 1 Cigar of 2008. This achievement paved the way for his long anticipated unveiling of the ultimate Dominican puro: Casa Magna Dominican.
Like all of Manolo’s cigars, Casa Magna Dominican sits heavy in the hand and comes jam-packed with sweet, aromatic tobacco. The wrapper is one of my favorites, a Dominican-grown Corojo glistening with oils, boasting a reddish hue and a thick, leathery texture. Each cigar is solid from head to toe, with minimal veins and perfect color. It looks edible, and it is tempting.
Upon lighting, Casa Magna Dominican shows instant character. Thick, creamy smoke envelops my palate with each puff. I notice oak and earth instantly, while a trace of fresh black pepper lingers on the finish. The bouquet is rich and chewy, coating every taste bud in velvety-smooth fashion, yet offering just enough bite to let me know this isn’t your average Dominican puro.
Side note: when I say bite, I don’t mean harsh or sharp. Consider it a slight edge to the flavor. An intentional roughness. A little meat on the bone, if you will.
The richness of Casa Magna Dominican does not waver. The burn is slow and cool, and continues to deliver thick plumes of smoke no matter how long this Belicoso sits in my ashtray between performances. The flavor opens up a bit more after the first 2 inches to yield coffee bean and a hint of nuts. A toasted peanut flavor, like eating the thick brown ‘skin’ of a peanut. I enjoy this flavor, and don’t find it often....but when I do, I instantly recognize it.
Just past the midway point, the strength of this cigar becomes relevant. Casa Magna Dominican is a strong cigar. It’s not in your face strength with unbalanced flavor, like so many of the ‘full-bodied’ handmades on the market today. You know how it goes: cigar has a lot of bold flavors, confuses my palate, smacks with spice, overwhelms my taste buds, etc. etc. Casa Magna, on the other hand, has an underlying strength that’s constant from start to finish. It hovers right on the border of medium and full, and gradually becomes more noticeable as my palate grows accustomed to the flavors at play. I feel it less in my head than my belly, especially when I’m taking my time with the cigar.
The final leg is exactly like the first. Velvety smoke blanketing my palate in rich and chewy fashion. Balanced notes of oak and earth, and of course rich tobacco, with a subtle touch of coffee bean and that freshly cracked black pepper to top off each puff. No twists, no turns, just a solid cigar with a lot of flavor, and something you don’t have to sit down and think about to enjoy. That’s Casa Magna Dominican. Satisfying, and (very) easy to enjoy.
While some cigar-makers try to wow you with something drastically different or ‘revolutionary,’ Manolo simply masters what we ask for: a quality cigar that delivers at every level.

After I finished this, I realized Steve R just wrote the same. Whatever, it just shows the communication gap that happens when you sit five feet apart. Plus, it’s an obvious vote of confidence for a really good new blend….
March Madness is in full swing around here, and between the basketball brackets and the ongoing push to enjoy as much daylight savings as I can, there’s not much time for cigar reviewing. Smoking them, sure, but to actually take the time to sit down and make sense of my thoughts on a blend? That’s a bit more complicated and time-consuming. But since so many of you seek out these reviews and since the big dogs around here have been bugging me about it, I decided to take a moment to reflect on Casa Magna Dominican.

But before we get to all that, a little background on the brand itself. It’s kind of a funny story, actually. Casa Magna is the brainchild of Manuel Quesada, who also happens to own a factory in the Dominican. But that’s not where he chose to produce the original, 93-rated, #1 Cigar of 2008, Casa Magna....instead, he took it to Nicaragua and teamed up with Nestor Plasencia. A very atypical cigar industry scenario. But here’s where the story gets even stranger. His next Casa Magna release was Oscuro, and once again, rather than playing the home field advantage, he opted to have it manufactured in Honduras. But the point of the story is this: he’s finally come home, and Casa Magna Dominican is finally manufactured is his own factory in the Dominican Republic. So now the world makes sense again.

Now that we’ve delved into the history, let’s take a moment to review the specimen at hand, shall we? The first thing I notice is a thin, brown wrapper that’s evenly colored, with a very naturally fermented look. It’s not super oily, but still, I find myself eagerly anticipating lighting this baby up.

The first puff is smooth and easy, with a notable sweetness that envelops my palate nicely. Besides the hit of sweet, I detect notes of toast caramel, nuts, and wood. A few more puffs and I notice a straight burn with a nice white column of ash. Overall, the character is mellow, which thankfully matches my mood at the time. It’s easy to sit back and enjoy this one.

About an inch in, the strength starts to pick up nicely, hitting all sides of my palate. I can feel my salivary glands start to get going, and I can’t help but notice how much I’m looking forward to what comes next.

Now I’m about halfway, and enjoying a nice array of spice, pepper, peat, orange, and ginger. The complexity is definitely impressive. Smoke production stays consistent, which is to say it’s voluminous without being excessive. No complaints here in that department.

The final third reveals yet another layer of flavor, but this time it’s a tinge of cream soda and pepper. As it comes to an end, I’ll admit that I’m a bit disappointed, and hope that another makes its way across my desk in the near future. In short, Casa Magna Dominican is a SLAM DUNK for Manuel Quesada and a cigar I really enjoyed. Good thing he finally brought it on home to the DR.
