Small Batch Cigar, an online boutique cigar retailer has received a shop exclusive in the Quesada 40th Anniversary line. The size will be in a 4 1/2 x 40 petit belicoso size. It will also be based on the highly acclaimed Quesada 40th Anniversary Corona Clasica blend – the first time a new vitola has been made available in that blend.
The Quesada 40th Anniversary line made its debut in 2014. As the name indicates, it commemorates 40 years in the cigar business for the Quesada family. The line was released in five sizes with a San Andres Maduro wrapper. A sixth size, the Corona Clasica was released in an entirely new blend that incorporated an Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper. While Master Blender Manuel Quesada’s daughters worked on the San Andres blend, the Corona Clasica was a project done by Quesada himself. The Corona Clasica is a limited production release.
Small Batch Cigars says they have received 100 fifty count cabinets of the cigar. Pricing is $315.00 for a fifty count cabinet.
The Quesada 40th Anniversary Corona Clasica was the Cigar Coop #2 Cigar of the Year for 2014.
