On April 10th 2022, Quesada Cigars Founder and President Manuel “Manolo” Quesada turned 75 years old. This summer, a cigar to mark the occasion called the Manolo Quesada 75th Anniversary cigar will make its debut.
“I have been very fortunate, and blessed, to have worked in the Tobacco world for 63 years and for 48 years in the Cigar manufacturing side of the industry. Surprised as I was, I have celebrated my 75th birthday on April 10th and, as I did on my 70th birthday, I have blended a Cigar to mark reaching this meaningful stage of my life. The Manolo Quesada 75th I blended to my palate and it’s a Cigar that has a pleasant intensity that allows to experience all the flavors and nuances the blend has to offer. Blended with Dominican and Nicaraguan Fillers and Binder, I have chosen a Corojo Wrapper grown in Ecuador. The Cigar will be a 6 3/4″ x 48, one of my go-to sizes when smoking Cigars. I sincerely hope you will enjoy smoking my 75th celebratory Cigar knowing you will enjoy it as much as I do,” said Manuel Quesada in a press release.
The Manolo Quesada 75th Anniversary is presented in boxes of ten. Pricing is set at $15.00 MSRP. Limited and numbered 1,200 boxes handcrafted by the Quesada Cigars factory in the Dominican Republic will be available. Orders will take place at PCA 2022 and the cigars will ship immediately after the show.
