Quesada Cigars has announced details around its Casa Magna Domus Magnus II Hadrian.  The Hadrian is the second of three line extensions known as “The Three Good Emperors” – a series that pays homage to the reigns of three emperors at the height of the Roman Empire.  The Casa Magna D. Magnus II Hadrian will add a unique vitola that is rounded in the middle and box-pressed at the ends.  This unique offering will be made available exclusively to members of the Tobacconist Association of America (TAA) as a part of the 2015 TAA Exclusive Series.

The design of the Hadrian is the inverse of the innovative Salomon Press introduced by Quesada for its Quesada 40th Anniversary and Quesada Oktoberfest lines last year.  While the Salomon Press is rounded at the ends and box-pressed in the center, the Hadrian is box-pressed on the ends and rounded toward the center.

The Hadrian follows the Casa Magna D. Magnus II Trajan, which was the first installment of “The Three Good Emperors” series.  There is a third installment called Marcus Aurelius, but no timetable or details around that line extension have been announced.

This is the first TAA release by Quesada since the Fonseca TAA Signature Series – which was released over 7 years ago.
