40 years and still going strong. But soon they'll be going, going, gone!
An ode to 40 years in the biz, Manuel Quesada releases Quesada 40th Anniversary. This release serves as a constant reminder of the decades of hard work and dedication that it took Manuel to rise to the ranks of master blender. This addition to the star-studded Quesada portfolio boasts three regular production sizes along with two limited edition sizes (Toro Press and Salomon Press). Only the best blend would suffice for this monumental occasion, and the proof lies in the pudding.
Hailing from the famous Quesada Cigars factory in the Dominican Republic, 40th Anniversary arrives with a Mexican San Andres wrapper. Beneath, a cocktail of long-fillers from the Dominican and Nicaragua meld perfectly with a well-aged Dominican binder. This medium to full-bodied offering reveals notes of spice, pepper, and a hint of smoky BBQ. A true pleasure to enjoy, this is one blend to grab while the iron is hot!
Quesada 40th Anniversary received a well-deseerved 90-rating noting: "An unusual, double-tapered perfecto that is pressed in the middle and bulges at each end. Herbal at first, this cigar develops notes of spicy licorice and rich chocolate."
