Fonseca visits Nicaragua
Quesada cigars are known around the industry for their tasty, boutique blends, and particularly, for the seasonally released Oktoberfest cigar. But those who really love Quesada know Fonseca — an extremely delicious box that’s the ideal candidate for everyday enjoyment. And now, like many cigar companies, Fonseca turns its eye towards Nicaragua, in order to create a medium to full-bodied blend for any cigar enthusiast.
Made in Nicaragua by the famous Plasencia family, this weighty handmade features long-fillers from Esteli and Ometepe in Nicaragua, along with an Oscuro Criollo ’98 wrapper from the Jalapa valley. When asked about making this stick, Quesada Cigars said they wanted to make a cigar that retails for around 5 bucks, but tastes like it should cost three times as much. And they’ve surely succeeded there. Complex and rich, Fonseca Nicaragua has all the taste of the best boutiques, with a damn fine price behind it.
