Casa Magna Jalapa Claro cigars were launched at IPCPR cigar convention in 2016. A unique smoke from Manuel Quesada, it became the next high end premium hit under the Quesada name and, first Casa Magna release in five long years! All at a reasonable price! Blend-wise, the new cigar incorporates the same binder and filler as the original Casa Magna line, but replaces the Colorado leaf on that blend with claro (Spanish for light)-colored wrapper that is grown in Nicaragua’s Jalapa Valley. Underneath this exquisite top-leaf, a blend of aged Nicaraguan filler tobaccos from several of the most fertile regions combine for mouthwatering flavors of pepper, cocoa, nuts, sweet cream, and cedar. Only 500 20-count boxes of each size were produced and the cigars were rolled at Plasencia Cigars S.A. in Estelí, Nicaragua.
Casa Magna Jalapa received an outstanding 90-rating from the Cigar Aficionado magazine in the June 2017 issue!
