Quesada – PCA 2023

July 24, 2023 By Matthew Tabacco



Quesada was situated near the front of the trade show just off to the right of the entrance, and was surrounded by many other medium size booths that were mostly family run generational brands. Their booth was a semi open concept with a few seats and tables to take orders and some beautiful display cases wonderfully lit with new and previous products.

First we talked a bit about their Casa Magna XV Anniversary celebrating 15 years since receiving the cigar of the year in Cigar Aficionado magazine for the Casa Magna Colorado Robusto. The Casa Magna XV Anniversary will be offered in a 6 x 54 Toro, with an Ecuadorian Habano 2000 warpper, Binder from Nicaragua, Fillers from Nicaragua, and made in the Dominican Republic at TABADEX. The cigar is set to hit the market with an MSRP of $15.00 and be in stores by September.



Quesada were also showcasing their seasonal release, the Oktoberfest 2023. The Oktoberfest line is meant to be paired alongside your favorite Oktoberfest malted beer and has been offered in many different blends and sizes throughout the year. This year it will be offered with a San Andres Wrapper, and Dominican binder and fillers. It is made in the Dominican Republic at TABADEX. It is offered in many unique vitolas this year with the Bavarian 5 ½ x 52, Das Boot 6 x 52, Salomon Press 6 ¾ x 54, Uber 6 x 65.

It is always great to talk to the upcoming younger generations in the cigar manufacturing world and to see their passion for the industry. Don’t forget to watch the interview below to hear more from Raquel Quesada.

Mitchell Santaga

Being a Canadian resident, the tobacconist introduced Mitchell to Cuban cigars and for special occasions he would light up a Cuban cigar. After exploring the Cuban portfolio, he stumbled into new world cigars and fell in love with the bold flavors and great consistency and construction. Ever since then he has been entrenched in exploring as much of the new world cigars and finding his favorites to keep in the humidor.
