⊗ Casa Magna Colorado features all Nicaraguan tobacco, but the clear winner here is the beautifully rustic red hued Colorado wrapper. It has a very earthy flavor profile which shifts throughout the cigar with highlights of creaminess, almond butter, sweet cherries, caramel, warm spices, cedar, and leathery notes all joining the party. These sticks have many nuanced flavor notes, and one really needs to pay attention during the experience to taste them all.
⊗ Casa Magna Robusto Colorado was named Cigar of the Year by Cigar Aficionado in 2008. It is a Nicaraguan puro using leaves from both Esteli and the Jalapa Valley. This 5 1/2″ x 52 Robusto size garnered an unbelievable rating of 93 points, which is made even more special given its LOW price tag. Created by two cigar industry superstars, Manuel Quesada and Nestor Plascencia, Casa Magna certainly delivers more than a enough bang for your buck.
⊗ Any cigar rated #1 by Cigar Aficionado is one that you should try but even more so when it is something that just about anyone can get their hands on. The Casa Magna is pretty much a sure thing.
⊗ Cigar Aficionado’s Number 1 Cigar of the Year in 2008 with a massive 93 rating, and still at number 10 in the world ratings for 2011. Casa Magna cigars are Nicaraguan Puros, handcrafted by the very top rollers at the Placencia’s factory in Nicaragua.
Casa Magna cigars are smooth, rich and full-bodied cigars with notes of coffee and spices. Wrapped in a nice oily Colorado wrapper, these premiums are rich and full-bodied. A collaboration between Nestor Placencia and Manuel Quesada, Casa Magnas are remarkable not only for their quality and flavor, but for being so reasonably priced for such a highly rated super-premium cigar.
