Casa Magna, the brand under Quesada Cigars that is a collaboration between cigar legends Manuel Quesada and Nestor Plasencia has added a new line extension to its Casa Magna Colorado line. The Casa Magna Colorado Gran Unico introduces a 5 1/2 x 60 size into the line. The cigars are currently shipping to retailers.

The Casa Magna Colorado was the first cigar made in the line by Quesada and Plasencia.  When it was released, the Casa Magna took the cigar world by storm and (the Robusto vitola) was crowned the #1 Cigar of the Year by Cigar Aficionado.  Since then there have been several line extensions to the Casa Magna Colorado, including a box-pressed series in 2012. The Casa Magna brand is the only regular production produced outside of the Dominican Republic.  The Casa Magna Colorado is made at Plasencia’s Esteli, Nicaragua factory.

The Casa Magna Colorado Gran Unico will be sold in 10 count boxes.
