Quesada’s love story to the Dominican
First, there was Casa Magna. Now, Manuel “Manolo” Quesada Jr. releases a blend of Dominican blend in three sizes that he’s dubbed “Vega Magna.” It’s a masterpiece of a line that could only be produced by a tobacco legend – featuring leaves from as early as 2001, sorted and fermented with extreme care in tercio aging over long periods of time, it’s suffice to say that Vega Magna is most unique.
Each size is offered up in limited edition boxes of 10 with artwork made by Pragmy Marichal, a famed artisan from the DR. Up top, you’ll find a Sun-Grown Ecuadorian wrapper leaf overtop three varietals of Dominican long-fillers. The result is an extraordinarily complex blend, with a full-bodied profile of cocoa, dried fruits, and hints of cedar. This cigar is offered as an ongoing item, but be warned – due to the meticulous quality control standards of Quesada, only one pair of rollers is producing the cigar, so production is limited. Grab some now, or risk missing out.
